Edwin G. Hamilton, 76

June 05, 2022

Edwin Gilbert Hamilton, 76, of Shippensburg, passed away Sunday, June 5, 2022, following a long and courageous battle against ALS. Born in Latrobe, he was the son of the late Edwin and Dorothy (Angus, Hamilton, Weinschenker). Ed was the husband of Pamela K. (Lefever) Hamilton, with whom he celebrated 38 wonderful years of marriage.

Family was everything to Ed and he will be missed greatly by his wife, Pam; his daughters Charly Althouse, of Harrisburg and Bobbi Morris, of Cains; his grandchildren: Abigail, Jacob, April, Angelica, Autumn, and Andria; 3 great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews; his sisters: Jean Sorber (Lyn), of Greensburg and Brenda White, of Latrobe; and brother-in-law, Bob Lefever, of Cains.

A 1963 graduate of Latrobe High School, Ed also attended Stevens Trade School in Lancaster. Ed entered the US Navy proudly serving in Vietnam. After being honorably discharged, he had a long career as a Tool & Die designer and engineer and worked in new product development for Tyco Electronics until his retirement.

Also known as “The Mountain Man”, he and Pam built their Tioga County home with their own hands. He was truly an outdoorsman who enjoyed bowhunting, rifle, and muzzle loader. He loved trapping, fishing, ice fishing, camping, and traveling.

Family and friends will be received for visitation on Friday, June 17, 2022, from 9AM to 11AM at Charles F. Snyder Funeral Home, 414 E. King St., Lancaster, PA 17602. A brief prayer service will follow at 11AM at the funeral home. Interment with a rendering of military honors will take place at 11:30AM at Riverview Burial Park, 1100 S. Duke St., Lancaster, PA 17602. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions in Ed’s memory be made to the ALS Department at Hershey Medical Center, Department of Neurology, EC037, 30 Hope Dr. Hershey, PA 17033.

My deepest sympathy to the family of a fine man from the Latrobe High class of 1963.

My deepest sympathy to Eddie’s wife and family. Eddie was my cousin and we lost touch many years ago. I am glad to read Eddie and Pam enjoyed a wonderful life in the beautiful forests of Pennsylvania in the home they built, and proud to know he was a veteran of Viet Nam.

Dad, Pop-Pop, Pops; 
You were the best father any daughter could have had.  You were always soo happy to see Abby, Jay, and I, and we were always happy and felt at home when we came to see you (and mom),or when you came and saw us.  We will truly miss you.  We love you soo very much.

I remember waking up to the smell of blueberry pancakes, and fresh coffee in you and Nanny’s beautiful home. We would watch the wildlife out the window, high up in the mountains surrounded by trees. I will always remember you as the man who would give me piggy back rides, and horsing around with me. You made me feel safe, you provided me with so much happiness, and you always will. You will always be my pops, and I’ll love you forever. I could not have asked for a better grandfather, I am honored to have been a part of your life. ❤️
