Arthur Henry Hamm

June, 5 1935 – December 31, 2016

Art passed away peacefully, after a short illness, surrounded by his wife of 53 years Bev, and nephews, Rick (Tish) and Bob (Alison). He is survived by his sister-in-law, Erna Hamm; fifteen nieces and nephews; twenty-three greats; and sixteen great greats!

Art served in the RCMP from 1957 to 1984 and then in the newly created Canadian Security Intelligence Service from 1984 until his retirement in 1992. He and Bev were avid travelers, living or visiting in countries throughout the world. Art had many interests and passions. He was particularly proud of becoming a pilot and was also an accomplished photographer, woodworker, boater and camper.

Our special thanks to the caring EMS and emergency room staff at NRGH who, while working at overcapacity, made Art comfortable while also caring for the needs of his family.

Friday, January 6th 2017.
