E. Morley Hamilton

September 7, 1939 - May 16, 2016


On Monday May 16, 2016, Mr. Eugene Morley Hamilton of Oliver passed away after a long illness at Sunnybank Centre.

He was born 76 years ago in Ft. St. John, BC to John and Muriel Hamilton, a third child and second son.

Morley left school early to work on the oil rigs and held many positions such as derrick man, driller, operator of a vacuum truck etc. He also worked in Keno, Yukon at a mining company where he married Nancy Howsam. His son John McKean Hamilton was born in Edmonton after being put in a medi-vac from Keno. They had a special dog “Bobby”.

Morley moved to Oliver in 2006 and shared his love of playing cards, poker and especially crib which was his favourite with everyone. He also enjoyed his gardens and the outdoors. Morley loved to pick his favourite fruit and can it. He always made the best bread for his mom. Morley loved the Okanagan and could be seen on his scooter many miles from home looking for berries to pick to make into wine.

Morley lived at the Kiwanis Manor, then McKinney Place before Sunnybank where he passed away.

He was predeceased by his mother and father.

Morley will be fondly remembered by his loving family including sisters Elsie and Audrey; brothers Lorne, David, Elroy and Hugh; son Johnny Mac; daughter-in-law Candy and stepdaughters Ashley and Sami.
