Obituary of Jim Hamlyn

Jim was born December 26, 1949 to Rita (Hillier) and Edwin Hamlyn of Crow Head. He began his lifelong passion shortly thereafter, working. Family aside, there was nothing that made him prouder than a job well done. After graduating high school, he studied to become a certified electrician. His knowledge of electrical systems was not his only area of expertise however, he could be relied on to invent, build or fix just about anything he put his mind to. On May 28, 1971, he married his high school sweetheart, Barbara Stuckless. Together they raised two sons and a daughter, Jeff, Joe and Joanne.
