We lost our Dad today and now he is in Heaven! Edmond Richard Hamilton, age 85, was also a devoted Husband, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend to many more.

Our Dad was born in Mt. Jackson, Virginia on May 3rd, 1935 to Braxton and Helen Hamilton. He was the youngest and rowdiest of 4 children. He is preceded in death by his “Momma” and “Daddy” and his brothers Jack and Tom Hamilton and his sister JoAnn Hamilton.

Our Dad is a former Marine who served honorably at Camp Lejeune and Okinawa amongst other duty stations. He was a southern gentlemen who was the hardest working man we have ever known. He was devoted to our mother and to us.

He originally moved to the Midwest in the early 1960’s and became a union Plumber. He married the love of his life Neva (Barnes) Hamilton on September 5, 1965 and would have celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary this year.

He is a proud member of the Local Union 25, Plumbers & Pipefitters and has been for over 50 years. He is very proud of his children, grand children and great grandchildren and loves us all very much.

His children are: Valli Griffin, Verda Lyons, Carlene VanDyke, Cherie Rogers (Bill) and Braxton (Carla) Hamilton. We spent many years on Campbell’s Island skiing, boating and fishing.

Dad loved to fish and boat.
