It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather, uncle and friend Andrew John Hamilton on July 12, 2015. Andy was born on December 19, 1952, in Cranbrook, BC. He grew up in Parson before moving to Golden and spending the majority of his life there.
Andy had many careers which he worked passionately at and found fulfillment in doing. Most recently he was a Safety Manager with Flatiron Construction. His job allowed him to oversee work on the Park Bridge outside of Golden, the Stoney Trail Ring Road in Calgary as well as projects across British Columbia and Alberta, and volunteer work in El Salvador. He also spent many years as Log Yard Supervisor at both the sawmill in Donald and the plywood plant in Golden.
Andy was passionate about his family, his work and the outdoors. He loved to hunt and fish and took great pride in the maintenance and upkeep of his Buffalo ranch in the Blaeberry. Andy is survived by his three children, Lee, Lyndsey and Megan, his grandchildren Stanley, Gus and Charlotte as well as many other family and friends.
