Roy Hindman, 88, of Hayden, passed away Jan. 22, 2012, at his home in Chubbuck, Idaho.
Born in the historic mining town of Mount Harris to Elmer Hindman and Evangeline Hughes, he was raised in Routt County before joining the Army Air Corps and flying with the 668th during World War II. He was honored with the Soldier’s Medal and Air Medal, and he retired from Air Force after 27 years. He enjoyed retirement by building a mountain home near Grand Lake and fishing in and around the area. He took pride in teaching others and will be remembered for his story telling and wonderful sense of humor.

Together they had three children: Ron Hindman (wife Donna), of Grand Junction; Rick Hindman (wife Beth), of Conifer; and Leslie Gresham (husband Walter), of Parker. He also is survived by four grandchildren, Alexandra, Zoe, Marcus and Noah; a great-grandson, George; his dear sister, Margaret Hurst, of Denver; and his wife of 10 years Ellen Carter Hindman, who lives in Idaho.
