JAMES ALAN HAMILTON It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of James Alan Hamilton on November 19, 2004 at the age of 77 years with his family by his side. Alans family was blessed to have cared for him in the comfort of his own home during the remaining months of his life. Alan was born on October 1, 1927 in Winnipeg where he resided his entire life. He married the love of his life, Marjorie, in 1952 and was blessed to celebrate 50 wonderful years of marriage prior to her predeceasing him December 2002. He was a very proud member of Knox United Church for over 70 years where he served in many capacities including President and Superintendent of the Sunday School, Clerk of Session, Chairman of the Office Boards Planning Commission and was appointed to the Board of Trustees. He was also Chair of the Core Area Liaison Committee which lead to the formation of the Knox International Corporation and ultimately the construction of the Knox Centre. Alan was employed in the industrial cleaning supply business for over 50 years where he held marketing and senior management positions. He was deeply devoted and loyal to his family and friends and always took an active interest in helping others in the community. He played a very active role in coaching his childrens football, hockey, soccer and baseball teams at both River Heights and Crescentwood Community Centres and was a past-member of the Granite Curling Club, the Winnipeg Winter Club and an avid Blue Bomber fan. Left to honour his memory is his daughter Tannis Tapley (Mark) his son Jeff (Angela) and grandchildren, Holly and Jason, as well as many nieces, nephews and close friends. Alan was also predeceased by his parents James and Ethel Hamilton and brother Hugh. Alan had a remarkable zest for life and a wonderful sense of humour that touched everyone around him. He always lived by the motto "Live, Love, Laugh". A service of celebration of life in memory of Alan will be held on Thursday, November 25 at 11:00 a.m. at Knox United Church, 400 Edmonton Street. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Duval Foundation, care of Knox United Church, 400 Edmonton St., Winnipeg, R3B 2M2. NEIL BARDAL INC. 949-2200
