Robert Merrill ‘Merle’ Hamilton, 65, passed away on Sunday January 5th, 2020. He was born to Robert Grant Hamilton and Lorraine Merrill Hamilton in Long Beach California. He was the middle child to two older siblings and two younger. Football was his favorite sport. He played for Neff high school and received ‘All LA’ and ‘All Orange County’. After graduating in 1972, he played college football at Cerritos and West Texas, where he received a scholarship. It is what brought him to Texas; where his two daughters live, and Oklahoma, where his 4 children and the love of his life resides.

He worked various occupations throughout his life, but the longest and most enjoyed was truck driving. He “drove over a million miles”. He met his wife of 31 years, Michelle Hamilton, in 1988, in Turpin Oklahoma. They moved in 1992 to Muskogee with their two children. They settled down here, had two more children, and raised their beautiful family together. He was a loving son, husband, father, and grandfather. He will be missed dearly by everyone who loved him.

He is preceded in death by his father, Robert Grant Hamilton. He is survived by his mother, Lorraine Hamilton of Montana; his wife Michelle Hamilton of Muskogee Oklahoma; son, John Hamilton of Muskogee; daughters, Hannah Newman and husband Wes of Owasso, OK, Rachael Hamilton of Muskogee, Emma Hamilton of Muskogee, Stephanie Farris and husband Adrian of Amarillo TX, Bobbie Shae Crooks and husband Josh of Amarillo TX; grandchildren: Claire Elizabeth Newman, Hudson Farris, Hawkins Farris, Parker Basket; siblings: Nancy Hamilton of Montana, Ken Hamilton and wife Lynne of California, David Hamilton of California, Peggy Grobel of Montana; and numerous brother in laws, sister in laws, nieces, and nephews.
