Hamilton and his wife, Katherine, of Cincinnati, Ohio, Allison Rowse and her husband, Craig, of Pittsburgh, Karen Coon of Roanoke, Va., Anne Schwab and her husband, Robert, of Meadville, and Sam Coon and his fiancee, Tanya Strait, of Meadville; six great-grandchildren, Alan Schwab, Cody Schwab, Dylan Schwab, Thomas Rowse, Katie Rowse and Ellie Hamilton; a brother, Charles Davena of Waverly, Ohio; a daughter-in-law, Barbara Lemme of Sonoma, Calif.; a brother-in-law, Linn Hamilton of Cincinnati, Ohio; and several nieces and nephews.
