William Lee Hamilton (Bill) was born in East Liverpool, Ohio on August 20, 1946. He passed away on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 at the age of 76 at his daughter’s home in Cape Coral Florida.

After graduating high school, Bill enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He completed two tours of duty in Vietnam and was awarded a Purple Heart. Returning to the states, he was stationed on Lake Michigan in Chicago, IL on a destroyer escort, where he met his wife, Sharon at the USO.

After he was honorably discharged from the Navy, Bill worked as an Air Traffic Controller for 10 years at the Aurora Center. Later, he worked as a Construction Superintendent in the Chicago area.
