Kenneth Michael Hamilton, 69, beloved father and grandfather, took his final breath on this earth on January 20, 2023. He is survived by his three children Joshua Hamilton (Amber), Adam Hamilton (Sarah Beth), and Brittney Hamilton; his six grandchildren Brycen, Ellison, Cole, Cristian, Wyatt, and Colton; and his three sisters Lorraine Templeton (Geoff), Pauline Springer, and Linda Goad (John). He was preceded in death by his parents Ian and Mavis Hamilton and his brother-in-law Steve Springer.
Ken was born in Evanston, Illinois but spent the majority of his years as a long-time resident of Virginia Beach, graduating from Cox High School and making his career as a businessman in the construction industry. Passionate about politics, the Cubs, and “Da Bears,” he loved meaningful conversations and great movies, and he never met a person who wasn’t instantly welcomed as a friend. He was known for picking up the tab, his gracious tips, volunteering at his church, and for treating everyone he met with kindness. All who know him will miss his practical jokes, his infectious laugh, and his genuine hugs.
Above all, he will be missed by his family. His children and grandchildren were the center of his world, and they will remember him and keep his legacy alive especially at all the places he loved most: every cook out, every baseball game, and every family holiday.
