“It is with a broken heart that I must announce the tragic and sudden passing of Justin Hamilton…my brother, my business partner, and my best friend on June 3rd, 2017. I know Justin became a part of your families as we have always striven to provide that level of service to our customers.
I was reminded by a great friend last year why I started Tomahawk Pest Services. I was approached by 3 people to start this company, two of which were investors and the third was my younger brother, Justin. After multiple expensive meals with the 2 investors, I politely replied, “No, thank you.” However, when Justin came along with his goofy, full-faced smile explaining to me how he had always wanted to own a business, I changed my mind.
As I began studying for the tests required to have a Pest Control License here in Georgia, my great friend who knew about my initial decision asked me why I had a change of heart. I responded, “I need to take care of my brother.” Justin being 3 years younger, I had always felt it was my duty to look after him.
I cannot begin to express my deepest appreciation for the customers, friends, family, and strangers who have sent their condolences, love, and support. My brother touched the lives of many. His goals for this company will always be a driving force for our vision.
