Funeral Service in Brooklyn for Philip ‘Meagre’ Hamilton of Nabaclis

FUNERAL IN BROOKLYN FOR PHILLIP ‘MEAGRE’ HAMILTON OF NABACLIS

By Waltie Ainsworth

The family of beloved Phillip Hamilton announced his passing a fortnight ago after a prolonged illness from diabetes complications. Phillip who lived for a quarter of a century in Long Island was a mere 65 years of age and was working in New York as a licensed Nurse Practitioner.  His funeral was on Sunday April 2nd at the Brooklyn Battalion Church on Linden Avenue and 40th streets.

Phillip is originally from Nabaclis on the East Coast and attended Sancho High School where his physical self earned him the call name of ‘Meagre’. He also attended the Guyana School of Agriculture where he graduated as a field assistant working for several years along the Soesdyke and Linden highway. 

In those days he adapted to the name of ‘Brown Head’ as he sweltered daily in the rural and rustic farming cooperatives along the highway.

This writer and him together attended Big Brethren Sunday school in Victoria during our formative years and Phillip used to respond to the call name of Brahmin.  Phillip was always well dressed, polite and knowledgeable about issues and events in the Bible.  In those days too Phillip had a weakness for Indians and had known their rites, rituals and traditions as well as he used to bring them along to his family and friends at Nabaclis.

Today it is with a heavy heart that I reminisce on his quiet and polite self that served him well in all aspects of his growth and development.  Young man we mourn your passing sadly.
