Lawrence Hamilton, 79, Campbellsville, KY (1944-2023)

Mr. Lawrence Hamilton of Campbellsville, formerly of Fedscreek, passed peacefully from this life on Friday, November 3, 2023 at his home.

Born in Pike County on February 14, 1944, to the late Lawrence William and Flossie (Ramey) Hamilton, and was 79 years of age. He was a loving husband, a devoted father and a proud grandfather. (If you are a grandchild reading this, yes, you really are his favorite. Don't tell the others.) Mr. Hamilton spent the majority of his employment building locomotives for GM. He was a firm supporter of the working class, a proud member of the United Auto Workers Union, and a veteran of the United States Army.

He was preceded in death by a son, Tracy Hamilton, on April 19, 1993.

Mr. Hamilton leaves to cherish his memory:
  • His wife of 55 years: Pamela Gayle (Martin) Hamilton,
  • A daughter: Kelly Dominguez and husband Israel,
  • A sister: Sharon Estlick and husband Charles,
  • Three grandchildren: Rebecca Dominguez, Eric Dominguez, and Naomi Dominguez,
  • Three great-grandchildren: Josiah, Tracy, and Damien,
  • And a host of other family members and friends, including all of his UAW brothers and sisters.
