Thomas "Scotty" Hinman, 73, of Basin, passed away Thursday evening, April 25, 2013 at St Vincent Hospital in Billings, Mont.
Scotty was born in Billings on May 3, 1939 to George and Genevieve Whaley Hinman. Scotty grew up in Shell on the family farm and resided in the Big Horn Basin all of his life.
On Oct. 11, 1963, Scotty married Karen Ann Michaels of Basin. Together the couple raised three children, Lori, Alan and Connie. Scotty worked hard to be the best he could at every endeavor in his personal life as well as his career. His time was deeply invested in his family as a husband, father, grandfather and uncle. Scotty's favorite vacation destination was in the Big Horn Mountains where he loved to fish and hunt as well as just relax with his family. One of his favorite activities with family and friends was a good game of cards.
Scotty believed in giving back to his community. He spent many years as a fireman, an EMT, and was an original member of the South Big Horn County Search and Rescue. He also served on three school boards and was most recently a Big Horn County Commissioner.
Scotty retired after 31 years with the Big Horn REA where he worked as a journeyman lineman, a line foreman, and master electrician. His favorite part of the job was always meeting with people. He had a quick wit and was always ready with a story and a smile for everyone.
Scotty is survived by his wife, Karen of Basin; his daughter, Connie (Todd) Werbelow of Emblem and grandkids, Ben and Kelsie Anson; his daughter, Lori (Greg) Dorr of Jamestown, N.D.; his son, Alan (Cheryl) Hinman and two step-granddaughters, Katie and Lindsey Graham of Lyman; sister, Nancy (Rick) Vonburg of Torrington; sister-in-law, Dorothy (Johnny) Gibler of Basin; brother-in-law, Bob (Sharon) Michaels of Worland; as well as countless other family members and friends.
