In lieu of flowers: Donations in his honor may be made to the American Lung Association; please

Darwin grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico and graduated from Las Cruces High School.
He went on to welding and mechanics school where he truly excelled. If he didn't have a tool or a
part for his car,he would craft one to fit his need. He was a true genius in making things work.

Darwin's 33-year career with Lockheed Martin began at the White Sands Missile Range in New
Mexico where he supported flight tests and upgrades on the Multiple Launch Rocket System. He
later moved to Texas to help manage the maintenance and testing of the fleet launchers in Dallas.
Additionally, he also managed the test support and integration labs. Darwin had a strong work
ethic, was willing to help anyone, and always had a smile.

Most people who knew Darwin, knew his hobby was dirt track racing. He found his passion for
car racing as a young child. He built his own race cars from the inside out. Driving his Mod-lite
race car (#54) always brought that unforgettable smile to his face. His racing career resulted in
many Wins and Championships.

Darwin and Linda were married in 2016. Darwin’s love for racing was only surpassed by his love for
Linda. It was evident to everyone else when he quickly had her name placed on the inside of his
beloved racecar, then later added to the outside as well.

Darwin strictly adhered to his principles: honor God, be kind, work hard, be dependable, have a
good attitude and go the extra mile. Darwin was a kindhearted person and a mentor to many.
You couldn’t miss the twinkle in his eye when telling a joke.He made friends easily and retained them
for life. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Darwin was preceded in death by his Father, Raymond Elton Hamilton; brother, Weldon Woodrow "Woody" Hamilton.

Survivors: Loving Wife, Linda Hamilton; stepson, Seth Cross; daughters, Heather Hamilton, Tiffany Bristol;
son-in-law, Curtis Bristol; grandchildren, Dylan Bristol-Hamilton, Sky Bristol; brother, W. Shannon
Hamilton; nephew, Alexander Hamilton; sister, Erin Hamilton Davis; and Darwin’s mother, Kathleen Hamilton.
Darwin’s mother, sister, and his beautiful daughters, both grandsons, and son-in-law reside in Las
Cruces, New Mexico. His brother lives in Chiloquin, Oregon

Before I met Darwin, I knew the man was special. My friend Linda was lit up like a school girl. She was so in love with this kind and wonderful man. A brilliant and yet humble man. A funny and fun to be with man. Darwin was everything to her, as Linda was to him. When I did meet him, I realized I had been calling him Daryll for several years. 8 have no idea why. It was clear to see that Darwin and Linda were like teenagers in love, they glowed. He will be missed. Lore L., Rio Vista, TX & Buffalo, NY.

I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Darwin passing. He was a longtime family friend. While still living in Las Cruces he worked alongside his neighbor Al Cooper, my father Tom Conner, and the rest of the pit crew on the Junkyard Dog 14x dirtcar. Of course I often found myself hanging around the crew as they worked on it. They won several championships during that time. Fast forward several years and I got a job with Lockheed Martin and found myself traveling out to Dallas and working in the MIF Lab. One of the first people to welcome me was Darwin. I enjoyed the time working with him and Bill Lamb. They both taught me a lot and helped me advance my career. We became friends outside of work too and while out there I spent many evenings at the local dirt tracks with Darwin helping him on his dirtcar. We had a lot of fun!

My family and I send our thoughts and prayers and condolences out to the family. He will be greatly missed.
