George proudly served in the United States Army and was a survivor of the Vietnam War. After serving in Vietnam between1970-1971, he returned home to his loving future wife, Linda who gave him two loving sons, Billy and Steven Hamilton. They've since welcomed their daughter in-law, Lisa Hamilton, (wife of Steven) who gave them two granddaughters, Taylor & Dani, and Billy's three sons, Marcus, Clayton, and Killiam to the beautiful family they have made. George then joined and worked under Teamsters Union Local 150 and retired after 35 years in 2005. He loved fishing, hunting, camping, and playing cards with his many family and friends. He was proud of his native heritage and enjoyed watching his son, Billy and grandsons, Marcus and Killiam dance at their ceremonies. He was so happy that they carried on with their Indian roots of Wintu/Klamath pride. George and Linda were married two weeks short of 46 loving years. He will be missed by all who knew him.
