Pam, 76, passed away on February 26, 2021 after many years of battling heart disease.
Born in Wilson, NC, Pam grew up in Ocala, FL where she was a majorette at Ocala High School and met her forever love, John David Hatch. They were married in 1964 and spent 56 loving years together along with their three children, Wendy Tucker of Moncks Corner, SC; Candice Hatch of New Port Richey, FL; and Teresa Caraker of Palm Harbor, FL. For the past 15 years Pam resided in Tarpon Springs, FL. She is survived by her loving husband; her three daughters; her sons-in-law David Caraker and Mark Tucker; 5 of her grandchildren, Garrett Duncan of Charleston, SC, and Mary Beth, Hannah, and Trey Caraker of Palm Harbor, FL; her brother Kenneth Carr (Pat) of Lake City, FL; her loving sisters/brothers-in-law, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Pam was an incredible woman of faith, courage, and love. Over the last 30 years she faced many medical challenges but always trusted in God and His grace helped her overcome many trials. The love shared between her and her family is as immeasurable as the stars in heaven. She is proceeded in death by her mother, Violet E. Holland of Ocala; brother, Carl Edwin Carr of Ocala; sister, Gwen Carr Crenshaw of Ocala; and grandson, John Gavin Duncan of Knoxville, TN. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
