Hamil was born June 26, 1931, in Pocahontas to the late Amburs and Mary Ella Wagner Million. He retired after 37 years with Ark-Mo Power and Entergy. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, watching Cardinal baseball, and most of all loving on his grand kids. He was a deacon at Monette First Baptist Church for many years before moving to Jonesboro, where he became a member at Central Baptist Church.

He was preceded in death by a brother and five sisters.
