Alec Hamilton Obituary, Death – When we learned that Alec Hamilton had passed away, we felt as a Club that this was a terrible loss.
Alec formerly held the position of President of the Club and was a significant contributor to the organization’s success through the James Hamilton group. He was a loyal friend and a strong supporter, and we shall miss having him around.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Joan, Keith, Alan, and the rest of the family during this difficult time. Sad news, really. Alec was the epitome of a true gentleman, and as a result of the suggestion that Ivor Mitchell made to him, I was given the opportunity to work with the Hamilton Group and have never looked back since then. Alec was generous with his words, actions, and money, and he assisted me in becoming established in Ireland by granting me unrestricted vacation time (fully paid).
I still have a mental image of him leaving the office on a daily basis, strolling “up the town,” to meet his pals for coffee, and doing so while passing by Craigavon Office Supplies. My deepest condolences go out to Joan, Keith, Alan, and the rest of the family in this difficult time. He was the epitome of chivalry, and his reputation endures to this day. “To the Hamilton family, please accept my sincerest sympathies. His passing has left a significant void in the lives of his family, friends, and the Lurgan business community.”
