Curtis Wesley Hamilton, age 79, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, June 21st, 2019 after a long-fought battle with cancer. He was the husband of Suzanne Lynn Hamilton. Curtis and Suzanne were long-time members of the Woodridge community in Bellevue, Washington.

Born in Flushing, New York, Curtis was the son of Dorothy and William Hamilton and the younger brother of Warren Hamilton. Curtis attended Queens College. He had a long, successful career as a manufacturer’s representative working alongside the Boeing Company selling landing gear and major airplane components-and eventually went into business for himself at CWH Incorporated, based in Bellevue.

Curtis will be remembered by his wonderful sense of humor, wittiness and joyful smile. Not a day went by that even in the most serious of situations, Curtis found a way to make those around him feel happy.

Curtis is survived by his wife Suzanne, his children Paige (Brian), Lee and Paul (Sara), as well as his grandchildren Curtis, Caitlin, William, Spencer, Brendan, Carson, Jack and Nick. In lieu of flowers, please send memorial donations to the Seattle Humane @
