Obituary of John Paul Hamilton

John Paul Hamilton, 83 years young, gained his wings and was reunited with his wife on Sunday, October 16th, 2022 in Chandler, Arizona.


John was born on January 25, 1939 to Cecil Aubrey & Geraldine Luella (Black) Hamilton.

John married Barbara Ann Winstead on November 2nd,1958. Barbara passed away May 2008.


John worked for many years as a Plumber and successfully ran his own plumbing business John Hamilton Plumbing. He loved deep sea fishing, dirt bikes & Nascar. If Nascar was on, most specifically “The Big Boys”, you would find him glued to the television. Most recently he was very active in Wii bowling. If you tried to call him during his bowling time, he would rush you off of the phone so that he could focus on his bowling game. John was the friendliest person and enjoyed sitting outside conversing with friends and family. He always had a smile on his face and was always laughing. He kept up on how all of his grandkids and great grandkids were doing and was genuinely interested in hearing about their activities.


John was preceded in death by his parents Cecil & Geraldine, his wife Barbara Hamilton, his siblings Roy Hamilton, Dayle Murdock, Charles Hamilton & Harry Hamilton, his children Kimberly Hamilton Vaughn, Curtis Hamilton & Robert John Hamilton. Survivors include his son Jeffrey Hamilton, Northridge, California; Grandson Brian (Sarah) Vaughn, Simi Valley, California; Granddaughter Melanie (KC) Agnew, Mesa, Arizona; Granddaughter Tiffani (Phillip) Mellado, Simi Valley, California and 7 Great Grandchildren; Walker, Paul, Payton, Michael, Wyatt, Klinton & Jack.
