William Luther Hamiter, 89, peacefully went home to be with the Lord surrounded by both of his children on September 10, 2019, at Gordon Hospice House.

Born on September 26, 1929, in Columbia, S.C., he was the son to the late Stanley and Sarah Fellers Hamiter Sr.

Bill was an officer in the U.S. Navy and a veteran of the Korean War. He graduated from Clemson University with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. Bill enjoyed a long and successful career as a textile chemist and ended his career as a plant manager in Statesville.

Bill was a faithful Christian and rarely missed a Sunday at St. John’s Lutheran, where he sang in the choir and served on numerous committees. Bill was an avid golfer and made a hole-in-one on one occasion.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara Berrian Hamiter; brother, Stanley Hamiter Jr.; and sisters, Lillian Dimling and Katherine Bone.

Left to cherish his memory is his son, Mark Hamiter; daughter, Lisa (Rick) Cotterman; five grandchildren; and many other loving family members.

Family will receive friends this Friday, September 13, 2019, from 11 a.m. to 12 noon at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 740 N. Center Street, Statesville, NC 28677.
