Roger David Hamilton

1960-2021

Roger David Hamilton

It is with deep sad­ness our fam­ily shares that Roger passed away in the early hours on Oc­to­ber 3, 2021. He left this world peace­fully sur­rounded by his fam­ily at home. He is deeply loved by so many and his fam­ily shared each and every mes­sage that was passed along through friends. He also hap­pily re­ceived many vis­i­tors over this past sum­mer, who brought lots of joy. Roger lived each day with such en­thu­si­asm, cu­rios­ity, and above all else a ra­di­ant kind­ness. He grew up in Hal­i­fax, with his two broth­ers and his par­ents, Gor­don and Nancy. He was a pas­sion­ate learner, which he car­ried through­out life, never shy to pick up a new hobby or skill (from cod­ing apps to mak­ing the per­fect sour­dough). He also loved sports and games, play­ing hockey and foot­ball through­out his life; he was al­ways find­ing a way to work a game into any sit­u­a­tion, if you had five min­utes to spare, he had a (some­times in­vented on the spot) game to pass the time. With all of his pas­sions and skills it was no sur­prise he ex­celled aca­d­e­m­i­cally. Roger com­pleted his Bach­e­lors of En­gi­neer­ing and then went on to grad­u­ate from Queen’s Med­ical School in 1985. This same year, he mar­ried the love of his life, Wendy-Lee. Wendy was Roger’s best friend and part­ner for the rest of his life. They had three daugh­ters to­gether, Leah, Jenna, and Keltie. They raised their fam­ily to­gether in Port Williams, his fam­ily and friends were the cen­ter of his life. He spent the ma­jor­ity of his pro­fes­sional ca­reer as a Fam­ily Doc­tor serv­ing the Wolfville com­mu­nity. He cared deeply for his pa­tients both as a physi­cian and as a mem­ber of the com­mu­nity. De­spite his many com­mit­ments in the com­mu­nity and at home, he never missed a soc­cer game or dance recital. He had an in­cred­i­ble knack for know­ing ex­actly what to say to put a smile on your face no mat­ter the cir­cum­stances. His in­cred­i­ble sense of hu­mour and em­pa­thy are qual­i­ties that his fam­ily and friends ap­pre­ci­ated and ad­mired deeply. He is missed dearly by his family. His parents are the late Gordon and Nancy Hamilton; and brothers, Peter (Trish) and the late Michael (Leslie); his wife, Wendy-Lee; and his daughters, Leah (Alex), Jenna (Lucas), and Keltie and his nieces and nephews, Bronwyn, Joel, Heather, George, Amanda, Andrea, Charlotte, James, and Emily.
