 Neil Hamilton


Precious are the memories of the ones who leave us too soon.  Long time Sun Maid Kennel Club member, past President, Vice President, Board member Neil Hamilton was an avid fancier in the sport of dogs.  His dedication, talent and love of the dog world spurred him to rise to the top of it particularly in Terriers.

Neil loved American history, Kerry Blue Terriers, miniature horses, the Drum and Bugle corps (high school, especially), the Ranchos in Madera and all dogs.  He was a staunch conservative, with a sharp sense of humor and a kindness towards all.  Always willing to pitch in and do more than his fair share, while offering honesty and integrity and laughter.  With a twinkle in his eye, his mischievous humor disarmed everyone he came in contact with.  Our club is better for having known and loved him.

Rest well, Neil.  Your partner, friends, family and the many dogs you loved over the years are waiting for you in eternity to show you the ball and toys and the best places, beyond the rainbow bridge, to run free.
