Lloyd Gilbert Hamill Obituary
LLOYD GILBERT HAMILL Lloyd Gilbert Hamill, of Quail Valley, CA, went to be with Jesus on January 26, 2015, just eight days shy of his 92nd birthday. Born February 3, 1923, Lloyd grew up in Council, Idaho, a place that would always hold a special place in his heart. He was the editor of the high school paper and yearbook, and enlisted and served honorably in the army for four years during "the Big One, WWII." After graduating from both U.C. Berkeley and the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern, he taught photojournalism at the University of Arizona in Tucson, and also worked as a writer, editor, and photographer in southern California. Preceded in death by his eldest son, Matthew, and his sisters Helen and Flora, he is survived by his dearly beloved wife of 59 years, Rose; his children Laura, Joshua, Gina, and Melissa; his sister Peggy; four grandchildren, and numerous other loving relatives. Lloyd was a man of devout Christian faith, and his ancestors were pioneers on the Oregon trail. He enjoyed camping, gardening, music, telling stories, and photographing both people and the great outdoors. A Memorial service will be held at the Canyon Lake Community Church on Monday, February 16th, at 11:00 a.m.
