Saddened by the Passing of Bob Hamilton

Posted by Saanich Express on Jul 07 2020 at 10:52PM PDT in 2020 Season

It is with great sadness that we inform our players, parents, staff, sponsors and extended lacrosse families of the passing of our beloved Bob Hamilton.

“Hammy” as he was nicknamed, loved his family and the sport of lacrosse tremendously. He attended any and all games his grandson Robbie Walker participated in and would do absolutely anything and everything for the teams he was part of. Bob worked quietly and diligently behind the scenes over the past 3 seasons for the Express obtaining sponsorships and promoting our team to all he crossed paths with.

The Express awarded Bob and Pat with the “Saanich Express Outstanding Contribution Award” last season for their efforts and support of our lacrosse team. We are proud to announce that we will be renaming the award from this point forward; it will be named the “Bob Hamilton Outstanding Contribution Award”.

Our Express family is extremely saddened by Bob’s passing. Our deepest condolences go out to his wife Pat and all of their children and grandchildren and extended family.

Bob will forever be our conductor and a driving force behind our Express train. All Aboard, Bob… All Aboard.
