Hamilton was the fifth child born to Hugh and Elva (Race) Johnson. He lived in Marlette with his parents until he drafted into the army in September of 1917. He was stationed at Camp Custer and was a member of the quartermaster corps. In Marlette, he was employed at the Rambo garage and also at the Ford sales room. He was quiet and cheerful, and had many friends.
At Camp Custer, he was always trying to do good for the boys who were less fortunate than him. He was was ill for four weeks with pneumonia at the camp hospital. His condition was not thought to be serious and the sudden turn for the worst was unexpected. An abscess of the lung along with the pneumonia caused his death at the young age of 21. He was the first soldier to lose his life from the area. His funeral was held at the Methodist church in Marlette, and it was estimated that over 600 people were present.
