James K. Hummer, Jr.


James K. Hummer, Jr. 74, passed away on Wednesday, November 10, 2021. He was born in Amsterdam, NY on March 1, 1947 to James and Edna Hummer, Sr.

Jim was a car detailer for Latham Ford Motors for many years. He enjoyed fishing, Nascar, and tinkering in the garage making birdhouses. Jim was a quiet man with a joking demeanor that kept people smiling. His kindred spirit was welcoming and he was surrounded by family who loved him. His grandchildren meant the world to him and he will be sorely missed by all of his family.

Jim is survived by his wife Carol; children Ann Burstin (John), Roxanne Guy, Barbara Burstin (Tony), Loretta Hetke (Dale) and Murray Burstin; grandchildren Robert (Tori), Nicole, Troy, Keith, Paulie, Jacky, Jess (Ken), Jimmy (Heather) and Caelan; great grandchildren Saige, Aspen, Connor, Elliott, Brayden and Rilley; brother John Hummer; sister Doris Dundon; and several nieces and nephews.

A private celebration of life will be held by his family.
