Bob attended grade school at Somerlid, but with his dad being a career U.S. Forest Service employee, he ended up attending nine schools in the Midwest, ending up graduating from high school in Milwaukee, Wis. After three years of college and the startup of a successful filling station business, and a stint in the U.S. Navy, Pacific Theater, during World War II, he moved back to Pueblo in 1947 to start his own business. Later in 1947, he went to work for Merrill Axle & Wheel Service, which ended up being a 41-year career. At the time of his retirement he was assistant manager and treasurer for the corporation. During the 40s, 50s and early 60s, Bob and his wife, Jean, raised two children, Alan and Patti Hamel. During this period, he was totally committed to school, scouting and church activities. This involvement included chairing the Trustees of the First Congregational United Church of Christ, taking many lead roles in Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and church youth groups. He was also a lifetime member of Pueblo Elks Lodge No. 90. Bob always had an interest in serving the community but time during his working years limited that involvement.

The Rocky Mountain District named him as an "Outstanding Kiwanian" on three occasions. He started the "Reading is Fundamental" program in Pueblo, and has raised funds to buy more than 13,000 books for Head Start children in the past four years. In addition, Bob has spent afternoons reading to young children who needed assistance. He also headed up the "Bug" program in the middle schools. This program is to recognize children who bring up their grades. More than 1,000 awards have been given. For the past four years, he also chaired the fifth-grade math contest, which is a math contest involving all Pueblo School District 60 fifth-graders and recognizes the top three winners at each school and the top three fifth-grade math students citywide. He was a member of the Pueblo Zoological Society, a member donor, a docent, being involved in zoo tours and the taking of animals to schools and nursing homes. He helped found the Trail Rangers for the Greenway and Nature Center and was co-chief of the rangers for several years. During this time, he biked in excess of 3,000 miles on the river trail system. He has been very active in the Pueblo Child Advocacy Center, both on construction projects and taking a lead role in their recent Blue Ribbon campaign and is a past board member and treasurer. In recent years, Bob received the following community and recognition awards: Pueblo Beautiful Association's "Ingrid Ahlberg Outstanding Citizen Award;" Wake-Up Pueblo's "Sunshine Award;" "1996 Volunteer of the Year Award" for both Pueblo Child Advocacy Center and Pueblo Head Start; American Institute of Public Service's "Jefferson Award;" Pueblo Library District's "Up with Reading Community Award " and the George S.

[Editor's Note: Isabelle Arnold Hamilton died March 20, 1909. Obituary listed Walsenburg World, March 25, 1909, Page 1.] Mrs. Isabelle Arnold Hamilton - Huerfano World - March 29, 1990 - This Week in Walsenburg History - 1909: Mrs. Isabelle Arnold Hamilton, born in Walsenburg in 1875, died. She was the daughter of Mrs. M. R. Arnold and was said to be the first American child born here. Her sisters Emma O. Dartey and Mrs. Adolph Unfug and brother Walter of Rouse survive. [Editor's Note: Isabelle Arnold Hamilton died March 20, 1909. Huerfano World 3-25-1909 - First American Child Born In Walsenburg Dies - Died, at Pueblo, Colo., on Saturday March 20, 1909, Mrs. Isabelle Arnold Hamilton, aged 33 years, 10 months and 11 days. Mrs. Hamilton was born and reared in Walsenburg, being, so far as known, the first American child born in the town. She was born on May 9, 1875, and lived here until the time of her marriage, in January 1899, to Mr. Alburtus Hamilton, a railroad man, who took his bride to Pueblo, where they have since resided. Bell Arnold, as she was familiarly known, was one of the most popular of the young set of the town a decade ago. She was vivacious and open hearted, the life of nearly all social events. Besides the husband, two children survive her, Elsie and Brittain. The body was brought to Walsenburg Sunday for burial and funeral services were held from the home of Mr. Adolph Unfug on Monday afternoon. In attendance at the funeral were Mrs. Hamilton's mother, Mrs. M.R. Arnold of Pueblo and the sisters, Mrs. Emma C. Dartey of Pueblo, and Mrs. Adolph Unfug of this place, and the brother, Walter Arnold of Rouse. To her, the struggle and burden bearing of earth are ended, and we confidently trust that like one who awakes from a troubled dream she has awakened to see life's endless morning break and knows herself at home with all the vast throng of loved ones, missed from earth, safe about her. Her home instincts were strong here in this fevered world of disappointment. Her affection for friends and kindred was tender and abiding. Gone out of our sight! But because life and love are stronger than death she is still ours. She is still the mother of her dear children upon whom she doted with such clinging fondness, and the companion still of him who mourns earth's greatest loss, and may she not by this transition wield over them a stronger force for goodness and truth before.
