Jarad Lang Hamilton, 43, passed away on Saturday, July 2nd, 2022. He was born December 14th, 1978 in Bowling Green, Kentucky, son of William “Bill” and Deni (Lane) Hamilton. Jarad had a deep passion for his family. He loved growing up with his two brothers and little sister. He was the kind one, the patient one and the one who always had your back no matter how wrong you were! He loved ALL things sports. He loved Kentucky Football, the Reds, the Bengals and EKU Basketball the most. He loved competing! He often hosted and ran poker tournaments, loved ping pong, golf, baseball, soccer and loved betting on games and horse racing. He spent the last 15 years of his life loving his fiancé Nikki. When their children were born they became his whole world. He was proud of how smart, kind and cute they were! You could find him playing Xbox with Braxton, teaching Bella how to shoot a basketball, throwing baseball out back with Jayden or watching Avery show off her back walk over in the living room. He loved coaching the kids soccer, baseball and basketball teams. He had a true passion for teaching and coaching and just being around children. His dream was to be a school teacher and a coach but life led him to the Contracting business where he was very talented and Umpiring Baseball where he was named Umpire of the Year multiple times. He admired his mother and could talk to her about anything and his dad was his best friend, they did everything together. Jarad was a good man and now he is free.
