Hamel, Larry

As a result of a tragic hit and run on September 20, 2019 Larry peacefully, surrounded by his family and the love of his life, Yvonne Moelker, passed away on October 23, 2019 at the Hamilton General Hospital. Loving son of the late Ernest & Louise Hamel. Dear brother of Paul (Bonnie), Louis (Karen) and Lorraine McGrattan (Terry). He is survived by several nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews. Larry was a talented piano player and artist who had a great sense of humour and creativity and always encouraged this in others. He lived quite simply with the joy of providing ongoing support and love to those he cared about. Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life was held at P.X. DERMODY FUNERAL HOME. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. A special thank you for the compassionate and exceptional care that Larry received from the ICU team at the Hamilton General Hospital. On-line condolences can be made at

I am very sorry to hear about Larry's passing. Larry and I played in two successful bands together in the mid 1970s (Whizz and Stingaree), and we travelled Ontario entertaining people from Thunder Bay to Windsor and everywhere in between. Larry was an extremely talented keyboardist, vocalist, and songwriter. He was also a very talented artist and caricaturist, and one of the smartest and funniest people I've ever met. We laughed ourselves sick on countless occasions, and his laugh was beautiful. Larry also had a way with the women, with his rockstar looks and personality. On a side note, Larry was one of the best drivers I've ever travelled with, and it's heartbreaking to think that he became a victim of a car incident. Life can be so unfair.
The world has lost another good one, and I have lost a dear friend and fellow bandmate. I could write volumes about Larry, but at this time I will very sadly offer my condolences to Larry's family, his lady, and to anyone who spent any time with him. My heart is broken, but I will always remember the great times we had and the wonderful music we shared. Goodbye, Larry. You made a lasting impression on the world.
