NOVEMBER 29, 2010
Norfork recorder-treasurer Donna Hinton’s husband, 72-year-old Michael Hinton, died last week while the couple was vacationing in Aruba, according to Norfork Mayor Jim Reeves.
Reeves said the couple was swimming in the ocean, when they were struck by a wave. Michael Hinton thought his wife was in trouble and apparently drown while trying to help her, Reeves said.
“We’re trying to figure out the best way to help her, to support her,” Reeves said.
Arrangements for Michael Hinton are pending with Roller Funeral Home.
