Obituary

Carroll Hamilton, 73, Warsaw, passed away on May 13, 2022 at home. The son of Dale and Helen (Carper) Hamilton, Carroll was born August 29, 1948 in Warsaw, Indiana.

After graduating from Pierceton High School in 1967, Carroll enlisted in the United States Marine Corp and served in Vietnam. After active duty, Carroll served in the National Guard, eventually being discharged in 1995. Carroll worked for Daylights for two years, the State Highway Department for two and a half years, and Zimmer Biomet for 36 years before retiring in 2009.

His grandchildren were his greatest joys and he loved them dearly. Carroll was known for his willingness to always lend a helping hand and doing the best he could in any situation. He was an avid and skilled storyteller who enjoyed action movies and watching Westerns on T.V. Carroll enjoyed woodworking and painting landscapes; farm scenes were his favorite subject. He was a proud member of the Warsaw American Legion Post 49, the NRA, and 4-H, serving on the fair board in the 1980’s. Carroll was also a former member of Eel River Community Church of the Brethren in Silver Lake. 

The loving memory of Carroll Hamilton will be forever cherished by his sons, Jim Hamilton, and Randall (Jessica) Hartman, Warsaw; daughters, Mary Hamilton, Warsaw, and Amber (Matthew) Enyeart, North Manchester; seven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
