Mr. J. Peter Hamel was the administrator of Riverview Hospital in Wisconsin Rapids and hired me in 1968. I worked at Riverview for 4 1/2 years. Mr Hamel was a very distinguished man who I had much respect for.
His son Peter, now Dr. Peter Hamel was a friend of mine.
When I drive past Riverview or the house on Witter St. where they made their home I often think of the Hamels.
It was a priviledge to know this very distinguished gentleman and my sincere sympathy to his family.
