Braden Price Hamilton Braden passed away on September 21, 2018 at the age of 32 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was born on November 2, 1985 in West Covina, California. Braden is survived by his mother, Alison Hamilton, father and stepmother, Jeff and Karen Hamilton, sister Emma Rider (Tyson), and brothers Jordan, McKay, and Jace Hamilton. He is also survived by his grandparents Meredith and Lorraine Hamilton and Cleone Price. As well, step siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and cherished friends too many to name. He was preceded in death by his grandfather J. Alan Price. Braden grew up in Modesto CA, and after high school lived in Long Beach CA, Taos NM, Ashton ID, Portland OR and Salt Lake City UT. Most of his work experience was in food service where he took pride in and was known for his hard work, great customer service and team management skills. Braden loved his family, friends, reading, and all things outdoors. His collection of hats and t-shirts was diverse and bold. His life was primarily framed by one gift - his love of music. He was a talented musician, band member, composer and lyricist, and was enrolled in sound engineering school at the time of his passing. His smile, goofy sense of humor, sense of adventure and love of people magnetized those around to him. He loved doing humanitarian work in Guatemala assisting people who are living in extreme poverty. His music and love for helping people is his legacy. Braden fought two insidious diseases - drug addiction and Lyme disease. His 20 year battle was full of ups and downs, yet he was always kind, considerate and respectful to his family and friends. His plans did not include this untimely end to the new life he was creating in Utah.
