Thomas Hampton Obituary

Thomas Conner Hampton, age 28, passed away March 24, 2024. Thomas is survived by his parents, Frank Hampton and Isabelle Richard-Hampton of Salina, brother, Zachary Hampton of San Francisco, CA, son, Evan Hampton (mother, Desiree Guebara) of Salina, special friend, Brittney Wells of Salina, and by his grandparents, Nancy Hampton of Salina, and Gilbert and Nancy Richard of Overland Park, KS. His grandfather, Tom W. Hampton predeceased him.

Thomas is also survived by his aunts and uncles, including Becket Warren of Salina, Nathalie Richard of Raleigh, NC, Alex (Katie) Richard of Olathe, KS, David (Anita) Richard of Austin, TX, and Valerie Richard of Washington, DC., and by his cousins Kay (Ethan) Perkins of Highland, MI, Sara (Steve) Roths of Salina, Gabby and Ben Richard of Olathe, KS, and Luka Richard of Austin, TX.

Thomas was born September 6, 1995, in Fairfax, VA. He moved with his family to Salina when he was almost eight years old. Thomas attended Salina Public Schools, graduating from Salina Central High School in 2014, where he played on a state championship tennis team. He loved playing sports, starting with tennis, soccer and ice skating before he was old enough to attend kindergarten. Whatever the season when he was young, he played the appropriate team sport whether basketball, baseball, football, or soccer. As he got older, he played more individual sports, taking up golf as well as continuing to enjoy tennis. He loved video games and board games and was a ruthless landlord in Monopoly. He was a dedicated fan of the KC Chiefs, happily spending a cold afternoon this past December 31st at Arrowhead Stadium where he watched with his mom and dad and brother as the Chiefs began their championship run to the Super Bowl.

Thomas first took up snow skiing in Virginia when he was four, but it was the Colorado mountains that he loved, and the wonderful ski runs they offered. Vail, Breckenridge and Crested Butte were favorite spots. On the slopes he headed for the Black Diamond and Double Black Diamond runs. For many years, his brother Zach declined to join him on the expert slopes, preferring to avoid the moguls that Thomas found exhilarating. Thomas loved funny movies, sharing a particular preference with his father and brother for any comedy with Adam Sandler.

Thomas cherished his good friends and his family and was well loved by them in turn. We will miss his smile, his kindness, his laughter, and his sense of humor. Please join us in prayers for Thomas. Memorials may be made for the benefit of Evan Hampton in care of Ryan Mortuary, 137 North 8th Street, Salina, KS 67401.
