Obituary for Chester Lewis Hamilton
Chester “Lewis” Hamilton, age 76, of Irvine, KY passed away at home in the early hours of June 20, 2020 after a long battle with multiple health conditions.

Lewis was born in Estill County on August 28, 1943, the youngest of five and only son of Chester and Rhoda Hamilton. Lewis was a 1961 graduate of Estill County High School and lived most of his life in Estill County. He retired as an electrician from B&B Electric, Lexington, KY and was a 59-year member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local #369. Lewis was a 32nd Degree Mason of the Stafford Lodge #562, a full member of the Scottish Rite and a former Shriner. He was also a member of Calvary Baptist Church in West Irvine.

Lewis will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew him. He was a hard-working man devoted to his family and never late for anything a day in his life. He enjoyed old-time country, bluegrass and gospel music, freshly mowed fields, and a cold beer after a long workday.

Lewis is survived by his wife and best friend of fifty-eight years, Wilma Lee Osborne Hamilton; three children, Sherry L. Hamilton-Reams (Eddie), Dyrklain L. Hamilton (formerly Deborah), and Stacie L. Simpson (Jeremy); three grandchildren, Daniel R. Isaacs, Sarah F. Thompson, Gabriel L. Simpson; two siblings, Betty Garrett, Estrada Gamble (Gerald); three nieces; four nephews. Lewis was preceded in death by his parents; siblings Barbara Flynn (Wayne), Bonnie Reynolds; niece, Julie Garrett; nephew, Jerry Gamble.

Friends may call from 11 AM to 1 PM Monday at the Warren F. Toler Funeral Home. Burial will be at the West Irvine Cemetery. Private funeral services will be held
