Formerly of Rowayton and Westport
Hamilton Wilson, a career Manhattan advertising man, who formerly lived in Rowayton and Westport, died April 5 in Dallas, Texas, at 93.
The Toronto native, who served with the Royal Canadian Air Force in the European Theatre during World War II
, was an account executive for several major brands while employed at Foot, Cone & Belding and N.W. Ayer, but most enjoyed his stint with BBD&O as executive on the DuPont account.
After 20 years of residency in Farm Creek, he lived for 35 years in Westport.
During WW II, he had served first with a night fighter squadron in the Midlands and later as a reporter
with the air force newspaper in London, the later assignment proving more dangerous because of the intense German Blitzkrieg.
While in London, he met and married June Mansfield with whom he had three children, Sandra Gamberdella of Hernando, FL, Susan White Mansfield of Rowayton, and Mark Wilson of Norwalk.
In retirement, Mr. Wilson became a well-respected counselor and established the Charisma Counseling Center.
He had moved to the Dallas area five years ago.
Surviving in addition to his children are his wife of 22 years, Helen Wilson of Dallas; two grandchildren, Rebecca White and Sarah White Kamrath; and three great-grandchildren, Isabella White, Lukas Kamrath and Nadia Kamrath, all of Rowayton.
