Glenn Morgan Hampton (HAMP) was born on March 10, 1954 and made his transition on February 10, 2024. He was the son of the late David Hampton and Bernice McGhee (Hampton). Glenn was born and raised in Binghamton, New York, and didn’t ever want to leave.  He graduated from Binghamton Central High School in June of 1973 playing on their JV and Varsity Basketball teams as a star player and continuing on to play for Broome Community College (SUNY-Broome). Glenn worked at the former Ozalid Corp, Singer Link and Binghamton Savings Bank. He also had a side gig car detailing business.

Glenn was an avid sports fan of the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan, the San Francisco 49ers, the Cincinnati Reds, the Syracuse Orangemen, and Binghamton University’s Bearcats Basketball team (especially when they were asked to the Big Dance in 2009). As you can imagine, RED was his favorite color. Earl “the Pearl” Monroe was one of his favorite players when he was in high school. He even got to meet him in person, which was definitely a highlight during his illness. He enjoyed the time he spent volunteering at the annual Jim “Mudcat" Grant All-Star golf tournament for over 20 years. He also played Little League baseball back when the corner stores sponsored teams made up of the local boys from the neighborhood. Those friendships developed on the basketball court remained intact and strong throughout his life. 

 As many of you may know, Glenn was a great cook and specialized in the best chili and wicked good Buffalo wings. He also made and loved a good chocolate chip cookie. Glenn was equally passionate about a few other things: men’s fashion, an immaculately well kept Ford /Lincoln car (cleanest one in town) and The Temptations music.

Glenn leaves to remember him: a Son, Matteo; Sister, Carolyn Annette, and brother, Philip (Rose), along with his nieces, Karissa (Henderson) Williams, Talyse, and nephews Michael (Keesa) and Devan; Uncles, Ernie McGhee and  Edward McGhee (Mary), Aunt, Louise McGhee, and Valerie Michaux (friend)  a host of relatives in Binghamton NY, Hartford, CT, Dooly County, GA, St. Petersburg, FL, Akron, OH and Detroit, MI.

He also leaves some special cousins: Henry Hampton, Clenn Hampton, Michael Hampton, Richard Hampton and Dr. Mishun Childs-Love. As well as some special friends: Ernie “Ski” Hoover(Nancy), Steve Keane, Sonny Gooden (Lynn), Glenn McIver and the late Lonnie Hawkins Jr.

 Glenn Hampton asked that we extend his and our heartfelt appreciation to the staff at Bridgewater Rehabilitation and Nursing Center for the gracious care they provided to Glenn. In addition, the staff at Binghamton General Hospital Palliative Care unit were thoughtful and caring during his brief time in their care. 

The celebration of the life of Glenn Morgan Hampton will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at Hopler and Eschbach Funeral Home, 483 Chenango Street, Binghamton NY 13901. The visitation at 11:00 and Home-going service at 12 noon.
