Tommy Hamilton

The youngest of four children, Tommy was the only son. During high

school, Tommy was a member of the international youth leadership

organization, DeMolay. He played football and baseball in his youth and

later enjoyed golf. Tommy was a lifelong Kansas City Chiefs fan and

always pulled for Ford to win in NASCAR. Outdoor sports, such as hunting,

fishing, and motorcycles were particularly appealing to him as they gave

him great pleasure.

Tommy became a career ironworker after graduation, and especially loved

welding. He was a member of Iron Workers Local Union #10 in Kansas

City, Missouri, from 1977 until 2000. Working on cars with friends was a

great source of enjoyment for Tommy, especially his orange 40th Anniversary 2004 Ford Mustang Mach I. In later years, he became a computer enthusiast and online gamer. Tommy had a willingness to always

help when any friends or family were in need. Whatever it was, you could

call on him and he would be there to fix your car, roof, etc., or fix your

problem if he could. Tommy will be greatly missed and loved by all who

knew him.

He is survived by his mother, Gerene Hamilton of Joplin, Missouri; son,

Thomas G. Hamilton of Nixa, Missouri; two sisters: Gigi Wood of Joplin,

Missouri, and Gail Brundege of Federalsburg, Maryland; and niece,

LaDonna King of Stockton, Missouri. He is also survived by his nephews:

Wilburn (Buck) Lowery of Nixa, Missouri, whose invaluable assistance as a

caregiver during the past few years is greatly appreciated; Wade Wood of

Joplin, Missouri; Beau Hardaway of Federalsburg, Maryland; Billy

Hardaway of Springfield, Missouri; and Lucas Cantrell of Bolivar, Missouri.

A memorial service will be planned for a later time. Details will be posted on

Tommy’s Facebook page
