Condolence from Kevin Doupe on April 28th, 2012 9:30 PM

I would like to offer my condolences on Laverne’s passing. Many years ago as an employee of the “Canning Factory” I made many visits to Hamilton’s Machine Shop for a large variety of service. Laverne would most always drop what he was doing to help us get back into production. When teasingly questioned about his shop rates he would smile and say ” ya gotta get it from those that got it “. I still muse over another saying of his ” that pile of junk’s not worth dirtying your hands on “. Sadly Laverne has passed but for me he is certainly not forgotten.

Condolence from jannie and herman van wieren on May 2nd, 2012 9:50 PM

dear hamilton family,please accept our deepest sympathy on the loss of such a wonderfull man. I know personally how amazing he was! God bless you all in this difficult and sad time~
