We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

Sponsors are welcome to participate and support HamiltonObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please  contact us for info!

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.

We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

McDowell RobertMcDOWELL, Robert Hadley - It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Robert Hadley McDowell on June 9th, 2018, in his 69th year, after a couageous and lenghty battle.

Robert will be sadly missed by his wife, Cindy, and his children Melissa (Chris), Michelle (Ian), Paul (Ashley), Leah (Josh) and Tyler.  He will be fondly remembered by Cindy's children, David (Tina) and Amanda (Jonathan). He was a loving grandfather to Addison, Grace, Grady, Kathryn, Evelyn, Emilee, Isaac, Tiana, Tristan, Tyler, and Jason.

Rob will be greatly missed by his friend & mother of his children, Jane, his brother-in-law Bill, his nieces, Sheryl (Wayne), Karyn (Jack), his nephew Bryan (Robin), and Lauren. At peace now, he is reunited with his sister, Lynne, and parents Hadley and Beryl.

Rob was born December 12, 1949 in Hamilton. He graduated from McMaster University, became a teacher, and taught for a few years before discovering his true passion in Real Estate. Rob was a member of the Realtors Association of Hamilton-Burlington since 1974, devoted to providing ultimate service to each and every client. Making countless friends, colleagues and loyal clients along the way, Rob will always remain a legend in the Hamilton Area Real Estate community.

When Rob wasn’t busy with work, he loved spending quality time with his wife Cindy, and his children and grandchildren. Rob enjoyed nature and the outdoors, took pride in his gardening, and had a passion for old cars and car shows. The simple things in life made him happy.

Everyone who knew Rob will miss his good sense of humor, his sharp wit, and easy going personality. He was always willing to go out of his way to help others. Rob was simply an all-around wonderful person. Rob was fortunate to have a loving wife who provided him with such amazing care and support. His children are forever thankful to Cindy for being an advocate for his health and going above and beyond to make sure he was always well cared for during his illness.

Many thanks to the caring staff in the ICU and 4C at Juravinski, as well as his home care nurses.

Visitation to pay your respects will be held on Friday, June 15th from 2-4pm and 7-9pm at MARLATT FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION CENTRE, Hamilton. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.
