We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Morris-Johnston Funeral Home Inc.
Robert James Hamilton, 77, of Moultonborough NH, passed away on Saturday, March 19, 2022, after a period of declining health. He was the beloved husband of Sheila Hamilton, and was raised in Hopkinton MA, by the late William and Evelyn Hamilton. Robert, better known as Bob, attended Babson and graduated from Northeastern University. He had an interesting professional career that started the book publisher Laurette’s and concluded as the General Manager for OB-GYN Associates of Rhode Island. When he “retired” in 2010 OB-GYN Associates had grown to become Rhode Island’s largest and premier OB-GYN Clinic.
Bob never “retired.” In addition to his professional career, Bob loved hard work. After he and a friend, clear cut their house lots in Southborough he was inspired to start H&L Firewood. He went on to have a successful career as a part time lumberjack for 10+ plus years! In later years he supported both Bob Jr. & Tom in their car business, towing cars & handling paperwork. Yes, he was transporting cars a few months ago! Other accomplishments included completing 3 separate addition projects on 3 different houses, building a 2-story barn and countless roof & porch projects! His commitment to helping friends and family didn’t stop there, he was a proud Mason and a member of the John Warren Lodge of Hopkinton MA. We will all certainly have stories about how Bob was always willing to lend a hand; that is how he would want to be remembered.
In addition to his wife, Bob is survived by his children, Robert Hamilton Jr. and his wife, Jennifer of Franklin MA; Scott Hamilton and his wife, Laurie of Marlborough MA; Thomas Hamilton and his wife, Amy of Laconia NH; and Kenneth Hamilton and his wife, Ashley of Gilford NH and his five grandchildren, who called him Grandpa, and whom he loved dearly. From eldest to youngest, Emily, Jared, Skylar, Ariel, and Thomas.
