Terry Hamilton Obituary

Mr. Hamilton, 70, of Coalport, died unexpectedly Saturday, September 2, 2023 at UPMC Altoona following an apparent heart attack.  He was born March 2, 1953, in Philipsburg, a son of the late Leroy G. and Mildred R. (Shomo) Hamilton.  He was also preceded in death by a sister Penny, a sister-in-law Teresa Hamilton and a brother-in-law Mike Kovaloski.  On September 20, 1980, in Blandburg, he married Mary L. Kovaloski who survives along with these children and grandchildren: son Kevin M. (Melissa) Hamilton and their children Zack, Dillon, Shawn and Jacob, all of Coalport, son Ryan L. (Tara) Hamilton and their children Leah, Nash, Kinsley and Kambrie, all of Gilbertsville and daughter Lisa M. (Ron) Puleo and a grandpuppy Bella, all of Coalport.  Also surviving are four siblings John M. (Carin) Hamilton, V. Wayne Hamilton and Kelly B. Keith, all of Fallentimber and Dan C. (Sharon) Hamilton of Duncansville, a brother-in-law Victor (Karen) Kovaloski, a sister-in-law Carol Kovaloski and many nieces and nephews.

     Growing up in Maryland, Terry was a self-employed construction contractor, continuing that occupation when he moved back to the Fallentimber area.  He then was employed as a driller at Benjamin Coal Company, LaJose and then as a heavy equipment mechanic for C&K Coal Company, Blandburg, where he worked until the company closed.  He then worked as a shop mechanic until his retirement.  Those who knew Terry knew of his disability and suffering but also knew he complained very little.  His Physical Therapists Ed and Amanda brought great comfort and joy to Terry during their sessions together.  Terry enjoyed woodworking, working on vehicles, wine making, coffee, conversation with friends and family and spending time with his grandchildren.
