Captain Robert Michael Hamaty O.D.
February 12, 1948 – June 13, 2020
It is with deep sadness the Hamaty family announce the passing of our beloved patriarch, Captain “Robbie” Hamaty O.D., who died after a short illness in Miami early this morning. His wife, Carlene, was at his side.
Captain Hamaty will be forever remembered for the tremendous impact he made on so many in the community in both his native Jamaica and his adopted home Cayman, where he has lived since 1978. His many notable accomplishments include being one of Air Jamaica’s first 12 commissioned pilots, his prominent position at Cayman Airways, his founding of the Cayman Airways Pilots Association, his establishment of the Tortuga Rum Company, his role as a founding Director of the National Building Society of the Cayman Islands, and his extensive tenure as Honorary Jamaican Consul to the Cayman Islands, however, his most important roles were as husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle. He will be greatly missed.
Both the local and international outpouring of love and support is much appreciated and of deep comfort to us during this difficult time.
Carlene, Monique, Basil and Family.
