Funeral services in Clovis have been scheduled for a Cal Fire firefighter who died in a car crash in Merced County.
A celebration of life is set for Monday, June 17, for Stacy Hamilton, a Fresno County resident and Cal Fire captain. He was 49.
The service will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at Clovis Hills Community Church, 10590 N. Willow Ave., under the direction of Boice Funeral Home. Donations in Hamilton’s name can be made to the California Department of Forestry Firefighters Benevolent Foundation.
According to the California California Highway Patrol, Hamilton was traveling alone early Saturday when his 2004 Subaru Outback left the roadway and overturned in a remote area between Merced and Snelling. The crash was reported to the CHP at 2:20 a.m.
“On behalf of all Californians, Jennifer and I extend our condolences to Captain Stacy Hamilton’s family, friends and colleagues in this difficult time,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a statement Saturday. “It’s the work of brave firefighters like Stacy that keeps our communities safe and we are deeply grateful for his service.”
In honor of Hamilton, Capitol flags have been flown at half-staff.


The Merced Sun-Star reported that Hamilton was wearing a seat belt. He was pronounced dead at the scene. According to the Sun-Star, the CHP said neither drugs nor alcohol were believed to have been involved in the crash.
Hamilton is survived by his wife, Katie, and two teenage sons, Ian and Logan. According to the governor’s office, Hamilton began his Cal Fire career in 2006. He previously served in the U.S. Forest Service.
