SERVICE CORRECTION HAMILTON, Arnold Fredrick September 8, 1932 March 28,
2007 Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, greatgrandfather, and friend
Arnold passed away suddenly on March 28, 2007 at Brentwood Bay. He leaves

Wendy Anderson (Gary) and Todd Hamilton (Luanne); his dear grandchildren,
Olivia Bing, D'arcy Anderson (Lindsay) and Devon Anderson; and his
great-granddaughter, Jamie, who brought much joy to his life. Arnold was
employed by B.C. Cement at Bamberton for 28 years where he worked initially
as a heavy duty mechanic and then as shop foreman. When the Bamberton plant
closed, he started his own tool sales business and, after 14 years, began a
long and happy retirement. He was very excited about a planned cruise of the
Amalfi Coast of Italy this July. Arnold grew up in Brentwood Bay with the
exception of one year when he lived at Bamberton during Grade 1. He had a
great interest and knowledge of sports cars and owned quite a few over the
years. He was also a founding member of the Victoria Motorsport Club of
Victoria. Above all else, family was very important to Arnold. He taught, by
example, that kindness, honesty and integrity are what really counts. He was
a very special man. We will love and miss him forever. We appreciate all of
the efforts made by the Ambulance Service, Central Saanich Fire Dept. all of
the many doctors, nurses and staff at both The Saanich Peninsula Hospital
and The Royal Jubilee Hospital, Cardiac Care Unit. A private family burial
will be held. A Celebration of Arnold's life will be held at 12:00 noon,
