January 28, 2004

G. Wayne Hamill, a financial consultant who enjoyed playing poker and grilling outdoors, died of a brain tumor Saturday at his Annapolis home. He was 53.

Mr. Hamill was born and raised in Catonsville and was a 1968 graduate of Catonsville High School. He earned a bachelor's degree in finance from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1972 and took graduate courses at Loyola College.

He began his career in 1972 as controller for the Hecht Co. in Baltimore. He later was a financial consultant for Coopers & Lybrand and Price Waterhouse before establishing his firm, Select Resource, in Annapolis in 1988.

Mr. Hamill was an avid golfer and sailor who enjoyed entertaining family and friends, and was known for his grilled shrimp, steak and crab cakes.

For 20 years, Mr. Hamill played an annual Thanksgiving Day poker game with friends.

"He played this year and actually won for the first time," said his wife of 29 years, the former Catherine Taney McAuliffe.

Mr. Hamill also enjoyed raising his two golden retrievers.

A memorial Mass will be offered at 9:30 a.m. today at St. Mary Roman Catholic Church, 109 Duke of Gloucester St., Annapolis.

Mr. Hamill also is survived by his daughter, Catherine "Kate" Taney Hamill of Annapolis; a sister, Sharon Hamill Tucker of Sykesville; and many nieces and nephews.
