James V. "Butch" Hinchey was born October 7, 1946 in Richlands, Virginia. I flew with my mother at the age of 6 months to Washington State to meet my father who had been stationed with the occupation army in Japan.  We moved a lot when I was young living in several towns in Yakima County, Los Angeles, at Boyes Hot Springs California.  We finally settled in Sunnyside Washington where I stayed until I graduated from High School.  I joined the U.S. Air Force in November 1964.  I was stationed in San Antonio, Denver, Tucson, Ubon, Thailand, Miami, and Kwangju, Korea.  I left the Air Force in 1968 and went to live in Blaine Washington.  After a couple of minor jobs I joined the Blaine Police Department and became Chief 6 years later.  I retired after 28 years.  I then went back to school at Bellingham Technical College and studied Computer Networking.  I was able to get hired by the College's computer department and worked there until the spring of 2002.  Two Friends and I started a computer consulting company doing installation, repair, and networking.  I recently retired from that.

I married Linda M. Powell (born 12-14-1950) on September 27, 1969.  Linda was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and was raised throughout the lower mainland of British Columbia. She spent her high school years in Abbottsford. Linda worked as a pre-school teacher and later as a Customs Broker. We were married for 32 years until Linda's sudden death of a heart attack in 2001.  We were fortunate to have three children.
