William Hampton pic for obit1William Miles Hampton passed away unexpectedly at age 16, on November 5, 2015. He spent an immeasurable amount of time fighting to live a happy, healthy life from the time he was conceived.

Will was born September 20, 1999, in South Jordan, Utah, to Charlotte E. Baldwin and Larry M. Hampton. From the time he was only a small child, he filled lives with laughter and happiness, always taking on different characters and solely answering to the character of his choice for the day. From the Grinch to Shrek and everywhere in between, he had so much talent. His infectious spirit helped fill our White Pine Players’ stage many-a-time, regardless of which character he was bringing to life. He felt a deep connection to music and science, seeing things most others missed. Will was a prominent member of our community, participating in high school choir, band and theater, as well as Community Choir and band in his off time. We will forever remember Will for his insatiable need for knowledge and music.

A memorial service in celebration of Will’s life was held Wednesday, November 11th, 2015 in Ely, NV. A GoFundMe page has been set up for those who wish to donate. William is survived by his parents: Charlotte Baldwin and Larry Hampton, siblings: Sorsha, Denver, Kaitlyn, Kenny, Daniel, Noah, and Elijah and grandparents: Ken & Carolyn Baldwin, and Larry & Susan Hampton, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
