Hamilton, Scott Milo  
Hamilton, Scott Milo Ithaca: Scott Hamilton, 70, of Ithaca, NY passed away November 17, 2014 after smiling, flirting, filling every hospital space with jovial conversation, and whistling his way through a brief fight with cancer. Scott "Scooter" or "Pop Pop" was born in New York City three minutes before his beloved twin brother, Bob, on June 19, 1944. Together these two marched through life attending Trinity High School in New York City and The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. "Pop Pop" was a storyteller, charmer, and ebullient fellow with a conversation, kind word and smile for everyone. His greatest love was his family, including his cherished wife of 47 years, Sue, his daughter, Donna Hamilton Kellermann (granddaughter Grace Kellermann), his sons, William Hamilton (wife Beth Grant Hamilton, grand children Grant, Gregory and Anna Hamilton), Robert Hamilton, and John Hamilton (wife Elizabeth Hamilton, grand children Hunter, Lawson, Benton, Thatcher and Channing Hamilton). Scott and Sue were known to many in Ithaca as the proprietors of Ide's Lanes and several adjacent businesses, in addition to being the owner of several local Subway franchises. More significant to Scott were his roles as a small fry football and bowling coach, and heroic fan to each and every athletic, creative, educational and life event of his wife, children and grandchildren. Scott was exuberant, grateful, creative, irreverent, giving and will forever be missed and celebrated for the love he gave to his family, friends and community. To his children, grandchildren, niece and nephew he imparted the finer points of telling stories, indoor carpet football, lake bathing, fishing, celebrating everything, gratitude and whole-hearted love. His daily gift to his family was tremendous, unrelenting love, unconditionally felt with adoring gazes, bear hugs and zealous declarations of affection. As a die hard Wolverine Alumni, Scott's wardrobe consisted primarily of blue and gold M laden apparel. In the week before his death, he attended a football reunion weekend in Ann Arbor with fellow Phi Delta Theta fraternity brothers and dear cousins Dick and Doris Reinholt; a weekend he declared, as he did all things, the BEST weekend ever. Scott was predeceased by his parents Donald and Ruth Hamilton, his twin brother Robert Hamilton and his son-in-law David Kellermann. In addition to his wife, children and grandchildren, he is survived by his sister-in-law Diane Hamilton, his nephew Bryce Hamilton (wife Hilary, their children Sawyer, Rafferty and Hadley), his niece, Tyler Hamilton Larmee (husband Scott and their children Austen and Seton). He would add to this a long list of extended relatives, dear co-workers and friends, and recent care givers whose medical attention he greatly appreciated and respected. A memorial service was held Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 11:00 AM at the First Congregational Church in Cayuga Heights. Scott would ask, in place of flowers, for random acts of kindness to others, donations to charities meaningful to those wishing to contribute to their communities, and an extra show of gratitude or love towards a dear friend or family member.

Horton, Gloria Ann (Murray)  
Horton, Gloria Ann (Murray) Ithaca: Gloria Ann (Murray) Horton, 90, of Ithaca, formerly of Malvern, PA and Baltimore, MD, passed away peacefully on Friday, November 21, 2014. Born on September 24, 1924 in Nashua, NH, she was the daughter of the late John Sims and Natalie (Tippett) Murray. Gloria was the loving mother of Thomas Wood of Ithaca; Jerry (Marie) Horton of Worcester, MA; Duane (Jennifer) Horton of Portsmouth, RI; JoAnn (Richard Dunham) Horton, Wayne Horton and Barbara (Daniel Doerr) Horton, all of Ithaca; and Richard (Kelly) Horton of Pittsburgh, PA. She is also survived by her stepsons Charles Horton of Wadesboro, NC and James (Betty Jo) Horton of Signal Mountain, TN; her sister Elizabeth (Robert) Fraser of Baltimore, MD; nine grandchildren, John, Willis, Annika, Sophia, Marlena, Erik, Riley, Lydia and Benjamin; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, H. Burke Horton; stepson, Alan Horton; sisters, Jeanne Malcolm and Shirley Stude; and brother, John Murray Jr. Gloria was always determined, hard-working and unflappable. For example, in the mid 1950s she completed an Associate of Arts degree at George Washington University as a single mother with a full-time job. She worked in federal civil service for many years, most recently with the Social Security Administration in Ithaca. She also had a long career as a real estate salesperson. Throughout her life she volunteered for countless charitable and youth causes, and more recently she was a Deacon at the First Presbyterian Church of Ithaca. Always frugal, she delighted in finding bargains at thrift stores, as well as cooking and baking, reading fiction, listening to classical music on the radio, playing tennis, and taking vacations at Rehoboth Beach, DE. But the center of Gloria's life was her family, and she was its heart and soul. Gloria will be fondly remembered for her friendly nature, loving selflessness, practical wisdom, steady, calming patience and snappy humor. May she be enfolded in perfect love and light as Heaven joyfully opens to receive her beautiful soul. There will be calling hours on Friday, November 28 from 5 to 7 PM at Bangs Funeral Home, 209 West Green Street, Ithaca. Services will be held on Saturday, November 29 at 11 AM at the funeral home with Rev. Kirianne Weaver Riehl officiating. Interment will immediately follow the ceremony at Calvary Cemetery in Ithaca. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully suggests that donations be made in Gloria's memory to the charity of your choice. Condolences may be left at www.bangsfuneralhome.com .
