A Legend Left Behind

Willis Hamilton is a legend whose life and accomplishments will continue forward from one generation to the next.

Always remembered as the inventor of the “popcorn ceilings” and the premix joint cement. His contributions continued with designing the truck mounted spray rig widely used as industry standard.

A Benjamin Franklin, Willis pioneered solutions to problems of the day freely giving back as gifts to society.

An outdoorsman who loved racing off road vehicles, flying private planes, racing boats, achieving the highest accomplishments with consecutive targets in the National Rifle Association, is not what he will be remembered for.

The legend that will be left behind will be the integrity, honor, generosity founding

The Hamilton Foundation Charity and humility he walked in, known through out the industry, the nation, and eventually the world.

A patriot who loved God, Family and country, who prayed earnestly without ceasing for the protection of these values he held dearly.
