Teddy Hamilton - Class Of 1968


  |   Visit Guest Book

FORT WORTH, TEXAS - Teddy Marshall "Packy" Hamilton began his next life's adventure on April 1, 2011. Husband to Laura, father to Sydney and brother to Bob, Karen, Candy, Roger and Jeff, Packy died at his home in Fort Worth, Texas.
He was a longtime resident of Hampton. After graduating from Kecoughtan High School in 1968 and serving a tour with the 75th Ranger Regiment in Vietnam, he returned to Hampton and graduated from Christopher Newport College. He then began his 30+ year career managing contracts for the Federal Government, Bendix, Harris Corporation, Honeywell and finally Lockheed Martin in numerous cities across the United States.
If you would like to celebrate Packy's life (and you know how he liked to celebrate) please join his family and friends at a gathering in his honor at Marker 20 in Hampton on May 14, from 3 to 5 p.m. Bring your favorite memories. View and post condolences on our online guestbook at dailypress.com/guestbooks.

Packy was an adorable, lovable, fun boy and double that for when he grew into a man.  No one had more fun at the KHS Class reunions, no one enjoyed seeing and connecting with folks from the "old days".  We will miss Packy and his rollicking sense of humor, great big laugh, and infectious smile.  Sail on Packy!!  Love, Bonnie and Alley

Teddy Hamilton (1968)

Hi Everyone,

I want to thank everyone for joining in the life celebration for Teddy....for those of you who were able to attend one of the celebrations in Fort Worth, Colorado Springs, Hampton, or the one yet to come  in Scranton, PA.  And also to all of you who were not able to attend in person but sent many thoughts and prayers our way.  Celebrating life is just what Teddy/Packy would have wanted us to do even though we are all sad that he is no longer here on this earth to share it with us.

What he wanted us to know, and what he lived every day that I knew him, was that we need to accept each other for what we are.  Love life and give life when we need to. That is what Teddy and I lived every day even when the cancer was too overwhelming for us to conquer.  I gave everything I had to him in hopes that he would be able to beat that cancer beast and so did Teddy.....Unfortunately, we did not succeed.  But he helped me to understand that life evolves around the love we have for each other and the love that we have for ourselves.

So, from Teddy and I, please live life to the fullest, don't wait until you are near the end to follow your dreams.....and live life with everyone around you...communicate what you need or feel and don't let any conflict survive.

Love, Teddy and Laura
