Mike was a good friend and a devoted father. Anyone who spent time with him knows that he was an exceptional man with a heart of gold. For most of his life he worked as a line-man and was an avid sports fan.
He is survived by mother Kathleen Hinton, father Stan Hinton, son Troy Hinton, daughter Amy Hinton, son Brent Hinton, brother Joe Hinton, his wife Shona Hinton and their children Lee, Catlin, and Josh Hinton.
On Monday Feb. 20, 2012 Mike was found after passing away peacefully in his home in Klamath Falls, Ore. Born July 30, 1962 in Hobbs, N.M. he would have been celebrating his 50th birthday later this year.
His infectious laugh and bear hugs will be missed. A private cremation was held. For more information please contact Troy Hinton at 376-2831.
