Harry W. Hamilton, 79, of Lake Mexia, passed away in Houston at St. Luke’s Hospital, Saturday September 9, 2017. The family will receive visitors at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Dr., on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 from 6 – 8 pm. A graveside service will be held at Mexia Cemetery in Mexia, TX on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 11 am.
He was born on April 9, 1938 to Harry S. Hamilton and Elizabeth. He was born and raised in Bellwood, Pennsylvania. He met his wife, Glenda Strickland, while serving in the US Air Force. They married on May 15, 1960 and remained married for 57 years. After his discharge from the military, he found employment quickly and over the years worked as a laborer at an in-home building and repair business, managed a scrapyard, was a John Hancock Insurance agent, and Assistant Manager and then Manager of a retail store for over 18 years. He moved to Texas in 1977 and went to work for US Steel for 10 years. He was an Assistant Manager at Regal Carwash, then moved to Burgess Marketing as Manager of Magic Carwash. In early 1996, he retired and moved to Lake Mexia where he remained until his passing.
Harry was a very private man and did not like to leave home. He would not take vacations and did not like to travel. He was completely content at home caring for his dogs, taking care of the yard or his wife. He loved his family deeply. He was a man of few words, and when he said anything you could believe in what he said.
He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister Margaret Hamilton.
He is survived by his wife Glenda; children, daughters Darnell Marsh and husband Ron of Pritchett, Yvonne Roberson and husband Kenny of Lorena, and son Rick Hamilton and wife Lisa of Lorena; seven grandchildren, Crystal Bell and husband Matt, Kayla Roberson, Heather Matthews and husband JT, Heath Marsh, Dayna Hamilton, Dalton Hamilton, and Samuel Hamilton.
