KENNETH JOHN HAMILTON
November 9, 1978 - August 30, 2021
It is with extreme sadness & the heaviest of hearts, we announce that Kenneth J. Hamilton passed away in Winnipeg, with his family by his side, on August 30, 2021, at the age of 42 years.
He is survived by his mother Debbie Hamilton; daughters Tristan, CJ, & Kiona; grandchildren Asher & Kaylia; brother Gord; girlfriend Amber; good friend Blair; and extended family and friends.
Kenny was one of the bravest men in the world & had so much more life in him to live. He wore his heart on his sleeve & cared for everyone, especially his family. He couldn’t pass by a street person without giving them some money, saying ‘that could be me’, he would give the shirt off his back if someone needed it & often did.
Kenny’s first love was baseball & played on teams from the age of 7 until he was 21, he also found joy in teaching ball to younger kids. The Boston Red Sox were his team. Kenny also played football with the Rods Football Club & also had the privilege of training with an Olympic gold medalist in diving, earning a silver medal in competition.
Kenny will always be remembered for his wacky sense of humour. Humour was a huge part of his personality; he could get a whole room laughing with a joke or a song that he’d made up on the spur of the moment. He was a goofy guy who loved to make people laugh & smile. He had a great memory for things, whether it was song lyrics, or obscure memories of family happenings, he remembered everything!
Kenny was very artistic & his personality shone through in his many drawings & artworks as they were filled with many colours & brightness. It was this love for art that drew him to designing tattoos for his friends.
Kenny, it is with great sadness that we had to say goodbye. You left this world as a beloved son, father, grandfather, brother, boyfriend, and friend to so many. We know you are no longer in pain and are now dancing & singing with the angels in the sky. You will be missed.
‘Now you can run free above the clouds, my son, in the place you always dreamt of, with no pain or suffering, where you can walk again freely forever. You will be forever missed & I will cherish you in my heart forever. Until we meet again, it’s not goodbye, it’s see you later. Love you forever & always, Mom’
