  He was preceded in death by his parents, Maude Walthall Hamilton and Harry Hugh Hamilton of Yorktown, VA.

He is survived by his wife, Debbie Powell Hamilton, son John Rogers Hamilton of Coatesville, PA, and daughter, Angela Lanier Hamilton and son-in-law Grant Philip Meek of Vancouver, BC.

Thanks to Hope Hospice of Fort Myers for their kindness.

Rogers was a such a wonderful friend and generous host. Deb and I remember many happy, laugh filled visits to Yorktown. Rogers was so talented in so many ways. It is hard to believe one so artistically gifted could be an extremely gifted computer programmer as well...yet he was. He was so much fun to be around because he loved life and he experienced it to the fullest. Thank you, Rogers, for letting Deb and me bask in your glow sometimes. Here's hoping you carry your humanity to another, better place, and that we encounter you there down the road. And...you can bet Joe's got all the votes from 4 Heatwoles.
