This page is to raise funds for the Hamilton family following the tragic accident that claimed Gordon’s life in Antarctica on October 22, 2016. We do this in memory of the husband, father, brother, son, teacher, colleague, mentor and friend we all had in Gordon. He leaves behind his wife Fiona, and children Martin and Calum.
While nothing can ease the pain and loss the family is feeling now, we may be able to relieve some of the stress of future financial uncertainty by creating this fund to help cover tuition, travel and other college expenses for Martin and Cal as they continue their education.
The Hamilton family has given so much to our community by their involvement in so many things: the community garden, paddling, hockey and biking groups, political and environmental activism, library and school groups, and more. Please continue to keep the family in your hearts as they carry on in the wake of this tremendous loss.
