Edward Charles Hamilton, Sr.

October 01, 1963 ~ November 18, 2022

Edward Charles Hamilton, Sr., also known as Big Ed or Big E, age 59, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Winter Beach on November 18, 2022. Ed was born on October 1, 1963 to Eugene “Sleepy” and Alice Hamilton and was a lifelong resident of Indian River County.
Ed followed in his father’s footsteps and was employed for forty years at Indian River County Road and Bridge Department. He was looking forward to retirement in 2023. Ed enjoyed family time, fishing, growing avocados and mangos in his front yard, and riding the Sebastian Buffer Preserve. He was a Vero Beach fighting Indians football fan and enjoyed watching the Miami Dolphins and Florida State University Football games. He was a great storyteller that always started with “I’ve got a good one for ya.” Ed was a gentle soul and was loved by many.
He is survived by his children, Eddie, Mariah, and Dawson Hamilton; sisters, Ruth Ann Sheets, Linda Starns, Peggy Hamilton, and Donna Snycerski and many nieces, nephews and cousins as well as several great nieces and nephews. Ed had co-workers and friends that were his second family.
Ed was preceded in death by his parents Eugene and Alice Hamilton and brothers, Kenny and Fred Hamilton.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

I have very fond memories of Ed in his younger years. We both swam for Bill Priestley and being at practices and swim meets on the weekends with our families were so much fun. My condolences to his sisters who were also part of the swim team family. I haven’t seen him in a few years, but when you saw him he was always so kind.

Uncle Eddie, Your generous ways and thoughtfulness towards others is a trait that is so rare these days.You will certainly missed by so many, family and friends alike, that were the recipient of your kindness. The way you carried yourself throughout your life should be an example to everyone of a life well lived. May you Rest In Peace and reap the rewards from the Lord in heaven that you most certainly have earned. Christopher Zinck

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
