Mr. Henry Donald Hamil, 74, of Bremen passed away Tuesday, March 6, 2018. Mr. Hamil was born in Haralson County, Georgia, on April 11, 1943. He was the son of the late James Lee Hamil and the late Elizabeth “Betty” Bush Hamil. Mr. Hamil was a farmer and business man with interests in many local businesses.
Throughout his life, Mr. Hamil was involved with his family businesses, Hamil Barber Supply, Hamil Transportation and he served on the local school board for several years.
Mr. Hamil was passionate about his family and spending time on the farm. He could always be found out in the barn with the horses or on a tractor tending to the fields.
