William Hamilton Obituary


     William T. Hamilton, 82, of Willow died Sunday November 12, 2023 at the Ferncliff Nursing Home in Rhinebeck after a brief illness.  He was born in Kingston on May 6, 1941 and has been an area resident all of his life.  Bill was a heavy equipment operator with the Ulster County Highway Department for thirty-seven years.  He had a great appreciation for the outdoors, and had enjoyed hunting and fishing.  He took pride in maintaining the landscape around his home mowing the lawn.  Bill had a strong sense of community, and was willing to lend anyone a helping hand and a generous heart.  He had a fondness for adventures to the Pennsylvania Dutch Country and had great focus in completing jigsaw puzzles.  

     Surviving are his wife of 61 years,  Linda Quick Hamilton,  a daughter Elizabeth Sopata and her significant other  Carl Shultis, and son William Jr. and his wife Laurie of SC.  Two grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren and a brother Herbert Hamilton of Olive Bridge also survive.
