Kevin Hampton

William Kevin Hampton, lovingly known as “Catbird,” 50, of Butler, TN passed away on January 14, 2022 at the Sycamore Shoals Hospital. Kevin was currently a teacher in the Johnson County School System where he was also a graduate in 1989. Kevin was the proud father of two boys, Blade and Gage Hampton, who he loved watching play sports through the years. Along with spending time with his boys, Kevin loved his time on Watauga Lake where he could be found fishing at any time day or night. He was also an avid University of Tennessee football fan, always wearing the orange and white. Kevin most of all was a big time family man, and he had a great compassion for kids. Kevin was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, J.E. and Mary Kate Arnold, his paternal grandmother, Kate Hampton Hicks, and his companion, Bledsoe Jax. Kevin is survived by his parents, Herb and DeEtte Hampton; his boys, Blade and Gage Hampton and their mother, Jodi Hampton; his sister, Liza Sykes; his aunts, Phyllis Matherly and husband Mack, Burnadene Blevins and husband Mark, Lesa Brown and husband Tim; and his beloved cousins whom he referred to as “Cuz.” He is also survived by his girlfriend, Krissy Walters and her daughter, Ariel and last but certainly not least, his many special friends who are too numerous to list. The family would like to thank everyone for the prayers, concern, and support throughout Kevin’s sickness. A special thank you to Blake Grindstaff for all your help.
