Loving husband of Shannon and beloved father of Fiona, Dave died suddenly of a pulmonary embolism. A diehard Husky fan, Dave graduated in 1999 from the University of Washington with a Bachelors in electrical engineering. Dave was a talented musician and athlete and never missed an opportunity to share his enthusiasm.
When Shannon and Dave met 19 years ago, it was love at first sight and they’ve been soul mates ever since. Shannon and Dave married August 11, 2000 and were blessed with the birth of their daughter, Fiona Marie, on December 29th, 2009. Dave was a dedicated stay-at-home dad who thoroughly enriched his daughter’s intellect and spirit. He showered her with love. Fatherhood came naturally to him and Fiona adored her daddy.
Dave is predeceased by his father, Robert Hamilton. He is survived by his mother, Share Wallace, sister, Susan Hamilton, grandmothers, Martha Wachsmuth and Sara Hamilton, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends who loved him for his kind and generous spirit.
