1938 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
JIM HAMILTON N. James "Jim" Hamilton, born February 24, 1938, went home to be with the Lord Monday, November 5, 2018. Born in the Midwest, he began his first pastorates in Kansas after attending Southern Nazarene University, which he loyally supported all of his life. A Nazarene congregation in Hermosa Beach, CA brought him to his first church on the West Coast and, eventually, his final church in Las Vegas. Whatever Jim did, he did with his whole heart. Whether he was participating in or watching sports or reading his "52 books a year," he was fully invested. He loved to travel, and his trips took him as far away as the Swiss Alps for hiking and the Northernmost reaches of Canada to visit endangered seals. His love for people was legendary. Whether he was officiating one of the thousands of weddings that he performed over the years, or just having a conversation with someone whom he met sitting next to him at a ballgame, he had a way of making others feel valued, comfortable and engaged. He loved his family and friends fiercely and well, and his pride in these relationships was clear in every conversation and interaction. He leaves behind his sweet Annie, who will miss him dearly; his children; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and endeared friends across many states and many miles. Although he will be missed by those who loved him, we hold fast to the knowledge that he is with Jesus, and that he is experiencing the "joy unspeakable" of a heavenly home. Services will be at 1 p.m. Sun., Nov. 11, at Palm Eastern Mortuary, 7600 S. Eastern Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89123.
