Theodore (Ted) Eugene Hamacher (59) was born on October 19th, 1960 to the late Theodore Ray (Shorty) Hamacher and survived by his mother Bonnie Dolores Hamacher (Nickell). Ted grew up in Simla, Colorado where he built his life being employed by the family well drilling business, Hamacher Well Works. He was a mentor in his trade, a doting father, proud papa, avid hunter and fisherman, and an amazingly loving husband. Bonnie Jo Hamacher (Jones) (65) was born on September 20th, 1954, to the late Eldon Paul Jones and is survived by her mother Anita Elizabeth Jones (Shay). Bonnie was born in Red Oak, Iowa. She grew up in Red Oak as a child and later moved to Denver, Colorado. Bonnie completed her high school education in Denver, Colorado and began a career in real estate. She enjoyed a successful career while also living a life of passion in caring for her children, family, friends, and her loving husband. Bonnie was incredibly proud of being a mom, a wife, and especially a grandma to her 16 grandchildren & seven great grandchildren. Her biggest enjoyments were planning family gatherings, camping, motorcycle rides, skiing, vacationing, and ultimately bringing people together to make lasting memories. Ted and Bonnie Jo dated off and on after first meeting at the Elizabeth Stampede. They later married on August 3rd, 2002 and spent 18 amazing years together. On August 16th, 2020, their dreams of soon-to-be retirement in Lake Havasu, spending their time camping with family and friends, and cross-county traveling, particularly to Cabo San Lucas was tragically cut short; albeit doing what they loved, riding their motorcycle.
