EDISTO ISLAND -Mr. Mark Bellinger Hamilton, 38, of Edisto Island, entered into rest Wednesday morning, January 30, 2019, at Roper Hospital in Charleston.
Born June 2, 1980 in Charleston, South Carolina, he was a son of Charles Patrick Hamilton and Joyce Bell Hamilton. He was a 1998 graduate of Colleton Preparatory Academy and graduated from Newberry College with a Bachelor’s in Business in 2002. While at Newberry College, he was a member of the Kappa Alpha Order and served as the Order’s Vice President. Mark has been a Senior Sales Manager for Wyndham Worldwide at Edisto for the past fifteen years. He was known for his strong work ethic and placing his job first and foremost in his professional career. Mark was always willing to help others, and over the years at Wyndham trained many who later succeeded well at their professions and always remained endeared to him for the excellence he helped them to achieve. He was a member of Bethel Presbyterian Church in Walterboro. An avid outdoorsman, he was a member of the Coastal Conservation Association and Ducks Unlimited. He loved to be on the water and was an avid offshore fisherman and truly loved Quail and Bird hunting. He was a South Carolina Gamecock fan and his favorite musical group was Widespread Panic. Three years ago, Mark’s life completely changed when he received his greatest blessing in life, the birth of the light of his life, his son, Brayden.
