Passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home surrounded by his family on Thursday September 15, 2022 at the age of 57 after a courageous battle with cancer. Beloved husband and best friend of 33 years to Charlene Hamilton (Golightly). Proud dad of Jesse Hamilton (Paula). Bill fought hard and was honoured to meet his newborn grandson Rhett William. Also special step-grandpa to Keeton and Ryland. Survived by his father Al (Grace) Hamilton. Predeceased by his mother Luella Hamilton (nee Potts). Favorite son-in-law of Bonnie (the late Wayne) Golightly. Cherished brother of Brad (Brigette) Hamilton, Patty (Craig) Zurbrigg, his brother-in-laws Cy Golightly (Cheryl) and Dennis (Kathy) Golightly. He will be missed by many special aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, special pals and many, many friends. Bill was a proud owner of Hanna & Hamilton Construction Co, a locally owned family business since 1956. When Bill wasn’t in the office bidding a job, or out operating heavy equipment his favorite things in life included riding his Harley, snowmobiling, tinkering in his shed, playing guitar and spending time with friends and family. Bill’s wishes were to have a celebration of life.
