William W. Lammon, Jr., better known as "Bill" by his family and friends, was born March 20, 1901, in Parkston, South Dakota. In his late teen years he moved to Midland where he farmed and ranched with his father north of Midland.

Bill was united in marriage to Anna Anderson in 1921 in Hill City. They ranched near Hill City following the marriage. She had one son, Herbert Hubbard, and to their marriage were born five children. They moved into Midland and later back to his father's ranch north of Midland. Anna preceded him in death in 1934.

Bill served as Midland Town Marshall and also was a heavy equipment operator for Haakon county and the State Highway Department.

Bill was united in marriage to Verna Rhoda on January 1, 1941, at Rapid City. To this marriage one son was born, Tom. They lived in Montana for about ten years before moving back to Midland where he worked on several ranches in the Midland area.

They also owned and operated Bill's Place for 13 years before retiring in 1970. Bill was an avid hunter and fisherman and enjoyed spending time in the outdoors.

Survivors include his wife, Verna Lammon, of Midland; four sons, Herbert Hubbard of Clouis, CA, Vern Lammon of Jacksonville, FL, Conrad Lammon of Orlando, FL, and Tom Lammon of Aberdeen; three daughters, Patricia Gardner of Hollywood, FL, Evelyn Schiess of Orem, UT, and Phyllis Schwartz of Hemet, CA; 26 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.
