Obituary of Alan Hamilton
Alan James Hamilton was born in London, England on March 31, 1944, to Kenneth and Victoria Hamilton. He was the oldest of 3 children. He came with his mom to Canada in 1945 and grew up on the family farm. He attended the one room schoolhouse in Fonehill for 8 years, then attended St. Joe’s and Yorkton Composite High School. After completing high school, he was employed for 2 years by SaskTel. Not long after, his love for the farm took over and he started farming on his own. He raised cattle until 1995 when he decided to sign on with Select Classic Carriers out of Saskatoon, while organic farming in his “free time”. Sylvia drove with him for 3 ½ years covering Canada, the United States and Alaska. Alan spent 11 years on the road, and then was hired on with his semi as an owner/operator with Ungar Construction in Theodore, and later with Federowich Construction where he remained until the first week in November of 2022. When he wasn’t busy with cattle and farm chores, he was getting the boat ready to spend the day at the lake teaching his grandkids to water-ski and pulling them on the tube behind the boat. Then when winter came, the hockey skates and equipment came out. If he wasn’t playing at games and tournaments, he was renting the ice and taking all the grandkids for a family hockey game. Many states travelled, many trips taken, but the most memorable ones were 2 trips that allowed them to take the kids to Disneyland. In January 2001, Joel, Chad and Lynsey spent 4 days in Florida at Disneyland with Gramma and Grandpa. Then in March 2002, Jordan, Blair and Shawn also got to accompany Gramma and Grandpa to Disneyland. Alan was predeceased by his parents, Kenneth and Victoria, and his son, Mark Hamilton. Alan will be deeply missed by his family; his wife, Sylvia, of 58 years; daughters, Kerri and Donna; his 9 grandchildren, Joel (Desiree), Chad, Lynsey (Logan), Jordan (Ali), Blair, Shawn (Tiffany), Jessica, Chelsea, and Chloe; his soon to be great-granddaughter; his 2 sisters, Patricia and Frances; special family friend, Taylor; as well as 4 sisters in law, 3 brothers in law, and several nieces and nephews. Arrangements have been entrusted to Bailey's Funeral Home, Yorkton. Service Details.
