    I loved David as an uncle. He gave me joyous memories in my childhood and I’m grateful for the friendship he had with my dad. I’ll remember him fondly.

    David had many gifts and shared them with so many. Those of us who knew him enjoyed his big heart, his sense of adventure, his love of numbers and data and desire to “make things better”, his culinary talent in the kitchen (at home and at work place)and the fact that he loved his son so very much. My prayers are with Alex and extended family and my hope is that David may finally be at peace.

    My prayers and thoughts are with your family may Alex and your mother find peace and comfort in the days to come. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4 RIP David Hamilton you will be missed.
