Condolences for John David Hamilton
To the family and friends of John, I am very sorry for your loss. I got to know John from Brewskys, and we talked almost every week for several years. I admired his stories and his generosity. We shared the same love for Keno, PGA golf, and Husker sports. Brewskys South won’t be the same without him. I wish all of you well.
I will miss John very much that is for sure. He was Strong Headed and Stubborn and loved to tell me what to do which made us bump heads but that is what I loved about him. For the 15 years that I was privileged to be his Daughter in law which I wish we could still have more years you taught me to be myself and not to deal with drama. The last few weeks we had together we became real close and I thank you for letting me care for you and give you the love of a daughter. You will always be in my heart and thoughts. I love you forever your one in only Daughter in law. Jennifer
My dad was a good father and hard worker and taught me a lot about life I will miss dad the funeral has been move to Saturday June 2 at Antelope parks at 10am
Condolences to the family. I worked many years with John at BNSF. A very sharp fellow, you could never dumb found John. Rarely a bad word he said about anyone. Kind hearted with amazing wit. Fun to golf with as well. Once he took up Keno & Pickle cards his golf days were gone. A good man, who will be missed. I’m very saddened to hear of his passing.
