With broken hearts, the family of Clyde Eugene Hamilton announce his passing on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at the Moncton City Hospital, at the age of 71.
Clyde is well known for his sweet, kind, loving, compassionate heart with a beaming smile that would light up the room with those dancing twinkling eyes.
He had a soft, gentle, non judging way about him that left an impact on all who crossed his path whether you were young or old.
He always had a kind word of encouragement and he believed the best in everyone. The word No was not in his vocabulary, it was always, how can we make it work.
He had a heart of Gold and demonstrated that with his silent, selfless actions of generosity. Clyde and Joyce had a cottage and would entertain the young kids, with their sea doos, boat, water skis and of course a big feed during the summer. On a separate weekend, they would continue with entertaining the married couples in the congregation as well as the seniors of the church congregation and have them down for a delicious meal and enjoy the cottage view. His two sons, David and Denny, can be proud of the legacy that both their parents left behind for them to continue to carry forward.
It was important to Clyde to spend time with friends and family. After church on a Sunday evening, the Hamilton residence was full of people, young and old. Clyde and Joyce loved fellow-shipping with friends and family. They would put on this amazing spread and invite as many people after church to hang out.
Clyde's favorite past time was spent travelling his sons to the hockey rink. He had adopted a few traveling companions along the way with some nieces and of course other boys in the community who played hockey with his sons.
His ultimate pride and joy are his four grandchildren; he was dedicated to them. He simply adored them and loved spending time with them. He was their biggest supporter at all their hockey, ringette, volleyball, soccer, and rugby games. He always had a smile or a big laugh as he watched them mirror their father’s traits both good and bad from years before.
Clyde was a passionate entrepreneur. Chapelstone Developments Inc. was originally established to assist churches and other non-profit organizations in the design and construction of their dream. Since conception, Chapelstone has been involved with over 400 churches and expanded to commercial, educational, recreational, health care, type projects.
Clyde will be greatly missed by anyone who knew him. We have all been blessed to have been LOVED by him.
Born in Newcastle, NB, Clyde was the son of the late Eugene and the late Erma Hamilton.
Clyde was predeceased by his wife of 30 years, Joyce Lois (Mutch) Hamilton and grandson David Clyde.
Clyde is survived by his two sons David (Tosha), Denny (Sarah); his pride and joy four grandchildren Alex (Sydney), Austin (Ally), Kiersten, Khloe; his companion Darlene Ettinger; his brother Dale (Twila); his sister Sylvia Stewart (Sterling); and several nieces and nephews.
