A kind heart and gentle soul, Albert G. "Al" Hamel 75, of Corliss Road, Swanzey, NH, passed away on Tuesday June 13, 2017, at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH.

Al was born in Swanzey, NH on December 19, 1941, the son of Albert and Evadale Hamel.

A man of simple pleasures, Al enjoyed playing with beach balls, tossing them high into the sky, and listening to music of all kinds. He loved eating and always loved a good "Knox Family Cookout". He had a special love for the water, especially the beach. There was a special place in his heart for his Chi Wawa, "Chico".

He will be greatly missed by his family whom he shared a home with for over 23 years, his special momma, Jennifer Knox Dassau and her husband, Ken, of Marlow, NH; his sisters, Shelby Arlen and her husband, Eugene, and Maggie Knox, both of Swanzey, NH, Laine Jane of Marlow; his brother, Nick Dragon of North Walpole, NH; his maternal grandparents, Margaret and Everett Knox of Sullivan, NH; and his special Castle Center family.

A celebration of Al's life will be held Tuesday, June 20, 2017 from 4:00 to 5:00PM in the Foley Funeral Home, 49 Court Street, Keene.

For those who wish, donations may be made in Albert's memory to the Castle Center, 312 Marlboro Street, Keene, NH 03431.
