Christopher Hamlin, 37, of Thermopolis passed away on Friday, July 5 at his home.
Chris was born August 14, 1981 in Rawlins, Wyo., to Mike and Geneva Hamlin (Kobielusz). Mike introduced Chris to the outdoors very early in life taking him on hunting and fishing trips as an infant. Unfortunately, Mike’s life was cut short and died when Chris was two years old. Geneva remarried in 1986 to Jim Kobielusz and he became Chris’s father and most important male role model. Jim passed away from cancer in 1997 and Chris began to struggle with life and love. He struggled for several years until he met Amber. They began a life together and had a daughter Alexis. His life turned around. He finally found love and purpose. He lived for his family. I hope you have found peace.
Chris was currently working for Rocky Mountain Logistics where he enjoyed hauling the big loads. Prior to that Chris worked for Smith Oil field service for 10 years, as well as Randolph Plumbing prior to that.
Chris is survived by Amber Parker; stepson, Seth Parker; daughter, Alexis Hamlin; mother, Geneva Kobielusz; sister, Peggy Hayes; and two nieces.
Chris is proceeded in death by his dad Mike; stepfather, Jim Kobielusz; half-brother, Mikey and Jeff Hamlin; and grandparents.
Service will be held at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Thermopolis on Wednesday, July 10 at 2 p.m. A memorial fund has been established at Central Bank and Trust in Thermopolis. Proceeds will be used to cover cost of services and provide for his family.
