Obituary for Marvin (Bob) G. Hamel

Marvin (Bob) G. Hamel
Marvin (Bob) G. Hamel (aka. Bob McDonald's) born May 20, 1930, a son of the Great Depression. You worked very hard at an early age as many children of that era did. You quit school when you made it to the 8th grade and shoveled coal for 50 cents a day and gave most, if not all, to your family. On the weekends you caddied at the local golf course where you fell in love with golf but at the age of 16 he joined the Army. Dad had to lie to get in and record keeping was not what it is now back then. Twenty three years later he would correct the mistake. He was assigned to Tanks (M4 Tank Destroyers) but didn't think that was dangerous enough. So you volunteered for jump school and went airborne. He caught the tail end of WW2 in Berlin which is also where he met my Mother (Christal M. Hamel she passed Sept 4 2008) but not until another deployment in the 1960. He survived Combat in Korea his company turned 2 times during the year they were there. After that I guess Dad thought about his skills set and decided that combat experience would only take him so far. He decided that he liked to cook and by time he was ready to muster out after 23 years. Not only was he an E-7 (Sargent) he was also the Commandant of the Commissary at Fort Meade. He then went to work at McDonald's and people told him he was nuts they said you should go work for the Post Office. But he ended up laughing at them. He started as a Store Manager at the Glen Burnie McDonald's. He quickly rose in the ranks and after 14 years was a regional supervisor when he decided that he would like to work for himself. So he took advantage of McDonald's Owner Operator program and bought two stores in New Jersey. Well, I am sure I have forgotten so much. You were Kind and you had a BIG HEART you will be missed by so many people. I will always try to live up to your expectations and I know when I stumble and fall you will always be there to pick me up. Though now only in spirit and that's why I will miss you. I know you are in Heaven with Mom I am sure she missed you as much as you missed her.
Survived by Michael D Hamel Son, Nancy A Hamel Daughter in Law (Who will miss you like the father she never had), Marianne Townsend cousin and Abigail Allen Family friend.
Services will be held at the Lady Lake Chapel of Beyers Funeral Home on Friday, August 11, 2017 at 11:00 am with Reverend Richard L. Burguet officiating and will conclude at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.
