William Charles "Ricky" Hamilton was born on March 11, 1951, to the parents of Carl and Carrie Hamilton in Munday, Texas. He was the tenth of eleventh children. He attended Paul Laurence Dunbar Elementary School from first through eighth grade and graduated from Munday High School in 1969. Ricky developed his early leadership skills in his early years. Once, Ricky informed his third-grade teacher that his Mother requested him to bring his baby sister home early from school. This may have been partially true since Ricky was the big brother to his younger sister never doubted anything he said. The only indicator that something was awry was that our materialistic neighbor, Ms. Octavia noticed us and students saw us playing in our front yard before dismissal. This was Ricky"s first and only ditch day experience.
The family of William C. Hamilton would like to thank you for the many
