Billy Hugh Hamilton

Billy Hugh Hamilton, 64, passed away Nov. 16 at Russellville Hospital.

He lived his life in Russellville and was a member of North Highlands Church of Christ in Russellville and was active in the Franklin County Amateur Radio Club (WB4BHH). He loved Golden Tiger football as much as he loved Crimson Tide football. He was a Golden Tiger himself and also coached youth football, PeeWee’s, T-ball and softball. “Roll Tide, Billy Hugh, you’ve got the best seat in the house now!” Prior to his extended illness, he enjoyed drinking coffee at Jack’s, watching his favorite teams, attending church and spending time with his three daughters and his beautiful grandchildren.

Visitation will be Nov. 18 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Pinkard Funeral Home, Russellville, with services to follow at 1 p.m. in the chapel. Officiating will be Bro. Jack Henson. Burial will follow at Belgreen Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Gene Ellison, Rex Mayfield, Tommy Mashburn, John Payne, Tommy Sherrod and Jackie Fowler. Honorary bearers will be members of the Russellville Youth Football Alumni and the Franklin County Amateur Radio Club.

Survivors include his children, Angela Dawn Hamilton and fiancé Joe Arrington, Pamela Jean Waldrep and husband Chris and Jennifer Paulette Mitchell and husband Jerry. He is survived by his ex-wife, Deborah Zills Hamilton, and sisters Peggy Fowler and husband Jackie and Patsy Oswalt and husband Larry. Grandchildren include Hannah Waldrep, Alyssa Skelton and husband Cody, Austin Gentry, Haylee Hamilton and Emma Mitchell; great-grandchildren are Leo Skelton and soon-to-arrive James Riley. One uncle survives – Bob Hamilton.

He was preceded in death by his parents, C.W. “Bill” and Merlyn Hamilton, uncle Jack Hamilton and aunt Cybil Cunningham.
