Hilton Hunter Hines age 92, longtime Coupeville resident, passed away on Saturday, August 29, 2020.
Mr. Hines was born in Traverse City, Michigan on December 1, 1927, to Harry Elmer and Ethel May (Hunter) Hines, the youngest of 4 brothers.
His father died when he was 5 years old and the family eventually moved to Novi Michigan. With the encouragement of his oldest brother the family became devout Jehovah's Witnesses.
In 1938 at the age of 11 he proudly submitted to water baptism dedicating his life to serving Jehovah God for the next 81 years.
In October of 194 7 at the age of 19 he married Carolyne Lee Willoughby. They made their home in Plymouth, Michigan and in 1949 they had their first child, a daughter, Linda Faye. Over the next ten and a half years they added two more children to the family, Stephen Brent and Rebecca Jo.
He supported his family by becoming a carpenter and remained in the field of construction until his retirement.
When his eldest daughters family decided to move from Plymouth, he and his wife and youngest daughter decided to join them, and the family left for Whidbey Island in February of 1978 in the middle of the worst blizzard in the history of Michigan. The beauty of the Island with its temperate weather patterns delighted him.
In March of 1995 he lost his beloved wife Carolyne to the complications of Parkinson Disease.
In September of2003 he married Janet Marie Brotten Bettinger. They made their home in Admirals cove.
On August 25 of 2018, his only son, Stephen Brent, a long time resident of Wisconsin, was removed from life support after suffering a traumatic brain injury 11 days previously.
He is survived by his wife Janet, two daughters Linda and Rebecca (Don), residents of Coupeville, seven grand children and eight great grand children.
His 17 years of marriage to Janet were filled with travel, joy and love. He spoke often of how he had been blessed with two wonderful marriages and of his deep gratitude for Janet's love and companionship and the tender care she gave him during his final difficult days.
He remained a dedicated and active member of the local Coupeville Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses.
A private burial took place at Sunnyside Cemetery on Friday, September 4, 2020. Arrangements were under the direction of Whidbey Memorial Funeral Home.
