$400 Needed for Cremation of Hero Who Died to Save Children
The family of Timothy Hatten is urgently asking for a little help. Hatten is the 35-year-old Fortuna man who died while trying to save two children from drowning on June 5.
Hatten’s mother-in-law, Lola Crothers, explained the family with all the unexpected expenses the family is struggling to find the money to have Hatten cremated. They need just $400.
“We have to have the money by tomorrow,” Crothers said. Otherwise the mortician told the family that the County would pay for it. If that happens, according to Crothers, then Hatten’s ashes would be placed with all the other indigent people cremated at the time in one urn at Sunset Cemetery.
“I’m trying to keep that from happening,” Crothers explained. She is hoping that people can donate quickly to Account Number 9225432070 at Wells Fargo Bank in Fortuna.
