William F. "Bill" Hamilton, 80, of Keymar, Maryland, entered the earth on June, 27, 1932, and died peacefully on February 4, 2013, after a long struggle with Alzheimer's. He is survived by his devoted wife of 58 years, Shirley Regina Hamilton; his loving children, William (Zoraida Alvarez) Hamilton and Scott (Karen McGuire) Hamilton; his beloved grandchildren, Michael, Jaylyn, Amanda, Matthew, Keith, and Timmy; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Celia Hamilton, and his sister, Lindsay Paul.

Bill was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, and attended Edison.
In his youth, he was a racing pidgeon-flyer and drummer in the Hamilton Drum & Bugle Corps, and he continued to enjoy these interests in some form throughout his life. He proudly served his country in the Korean Conflict from 1952 to 1955, achieving rank of sergeant first-class, and never shrank from giving heartfelt thanks to fellow servicemen and women for their sacrifices. Bill worked as a tool-and-die-maker for many years before retiring to a life of farming in Keymar. A self-reliant and hard-working man, Bill enjoyed hunting and fishing and delighted in the successes and victories of those who worked hard to fulfill their dreams and aspirations.

Friends may call Sunday 12:00 noon until time of memorial services; 1:30 p.m.  at Fletcher Funeral & Cremation Services, 254 E. Main St., Westminster.  

Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, Greater Baltimore Chapter, 1850 York Road, Suite D, Timonium, Maryland 21093 or Carroll Hospice, Inc., 292 Stoner Avenue, Westminster, Maryland 21157.

Dear Hamilton Family,
We are very saddened by your loss and want you to know that we are thinking of you and praying for healing. I hope you will be comforted in the knowledge that Mr. Hamilton is now at rest. I will miss his smiling face at play rehearsals. I will never forget him standing when the cast of MASH sang the armed forces medley at the end of the show a couple of years ago. So glad we had the chance to thank HIM for his service!
Love and hugs to you all.
The Lutton Family
