18 April, 1947 – 20 February, 2021

John Richard Hamill, born April 18 1947 started his new life with the Lord February 20 2021.

Dick was a man of integrity and faith, if you knew him you loved him. A few months short of 50 years he spent being a wonderful husband and best friend to Heather. His daughters Kelly (Matthew DeJong) and Peggy (Dan Regnier) were the best and the brightest always in his eyes. We were so blessed to have Kelly and Matt bring three beautiful children into the world. Dick cherished Abigail, Tom and Charles. Every moment he had to share stories with them he did . He loved deeply. His family was his greatest accomplishment and joy. Dick gave his family wonderful memories to hold dear forever. We will laugh, we will cry and we will cherish him as he cherished us. Dick’s wish was to pass at home, and he did peacefully. Funeral arrangements entrusted to LAHAIE AND SULLIVAN CORNWALL FUNERAL HOME, WEST BRANCH, 20 SEVENTH ST WEST (613-932-8482). A private family celebration of Dick’s life will be held at a later date.  Online messages of condolence may be made at
