Jerry Wayne HamiltonDrag RacingJerry Wayne Hamilton, 73 of Marion died peacefully Wednesday, January 8, 2020 at home.

He was born January 26, 1946 in Marion to the late Ernest Verne and Dorothy Mae (Kennedy) Hamilton. He was also preceded in death by a brother, Jack Hamilton and a sister, Joyce Erwin.

He was a 1964 graduate of Richwood High School. He retired from Whirlpool Corporation after 40 1/2 years of service. Jerry and Jackie loved to travel, especially to their winter home in Harlingen, Texas, where they were proudly called “Winter Texans.” Jerry also loved cars, both fixing and driving them. His Dodge 1500 truck was his pride and joy, which he named “Pop’s Toy.” His other pride and joy was his dog, Tucker, who was always by his side.

He is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Jacqueline Jo “Jackie” (McIntire) Hamilton, whom he married on August 29, 1980; daughter, Jacqueline Ann “Jackie” Hamilton, Richwood; sons, John (Aimee) Severns; Greg (Gretchen) Severns; Jack (Cherie) Byrd, all of Marion; grandchildren, Taylor Hamilton, Brandon Barkeloo, Hayden Hamilton, Zach Severns, Alex (Cierra Best) Severns, Maddie (Jon Laseke) Severns, Marissa (Cody Wilhite) Severns, Liam Severns, Marcie (Jay Lichtenberger) Hamilton, Dillion (Aliza) Hamilton, Seth (Breanna Beery) Hamilton; great-grandson, Spencer Laseke; sister, Roberta “Bertie” Evans, Richwood; sister-in-law, Ava Hamilton, Radnor; and several nieces and nephews.

Per Jerry's wishes there will be no calling hours. Graveside services will be Friday, January 17, 2020 at 11:00 AM at the Green Camp Cemetery with Gary Lyons officiating. The family would like to invite anyone who knew Jerry to join them in a celebration of his life on Saturday, January 18, 2020 from 2-5 PM at the VFW Post 870 in Richwood.

Jerry was an advisor to Tri-Rivers Auto Tech Program and was instrumental in helping the instructor, Ed Williams in starting the drag racing program. Because of Jerry’s passion for cars, a one-time scholarship to a deserving student has been established in his name. Memorial gifts may be made to Tri-Rivers Career Center Auto Tech Program, c/o Marion Community Foundation, 504 S. State Street, Marion, OH 43302.

Have been friends with Jerry since high school and will never forget the time he scared me to death When following me home in Russells Point to see where I lived.  Jackie, I'm sure you remember that night.  He was such a nice guy and will be missed by so many of us.  My sincere sympathy to the entire family.

Jerry & I have been friends for years.  Jerry's parents & my parents were good friends.  My sister & I showed him a few dance steps and we had great fun in the Richwood Band. We lost touch for a few years after we grew up but when Jerry & Jackie became "winter Texans" we hooked up again.  We had lots of fun in South Texas & Mexico.  We even got to take care of Tucker while they went on a cruise big honor, just sayin'. Jerry's loss is beyond words.  He was a super guy, special friend & will be missed.
