James Donald Hatton, 85, passed away in Bastrop, Texas on April 16, 2022.

James was born in Washington D.C. on January 10, 1937 to James Stuart Hatton and Muriel Louise Heitt Hatton. James enlisted in the United States Air Force in Washington D.C. July 19, 1956.  He proudly served during the Vietnam era and was honorably discharged as Master Sgt. E-7 at Bergstrom Air Force Base in Texas on January 31, 1978.

James entered, passed, and was raised in General John J. Pershing Lodge #66 located in Maastricht, The Netherlands where he was a life member.  He later joined Onion Creek Lodge #220 in Austin, Texas where he was an endowed member. James was a very quiet man and a devoted family man. James and his step-son, Bruce, had many conversations over the years about his long tenured masonic journey.

James was preceded in death by his father and mother, James Stuart Hatton and  Muriel Louise Heitt Hatton; two brothers, Gerald Alan Hatton and Paul Richard Hatton; and stepson, David Lewis Calvery.
