Ronald Edward Hatton, 60, died February 16, 2013 at his home in Calais.  He was born June 16, 1952, in Calais, the son of Carroll and Catherine Hatton, and graduated from Calais Memorial High School.

Ron was a very hard working individual and creative entrepreneur throughout his life.  Ron was also extremely talented with the arts.  He shared his talent with students while he taught art nights at the Calais High School.  Additionally, Ron volunteered numerous hours with many civic organizations such as the Lions Club and served many years as a member on the Charlotte School Board.

He is survived by two daughters, Beth Seilonen of Cripple Creek, Colorado, and Heather Seilonen of Baltimore, Maryland; grandchildren, Rachel Seilonen, Anna and Dylan Guthrie, and Star Beal; sister, Susan Hatton, aunts, niece, nephews, many cousins, and good friend, Vance Emery, who, through his kindness, made it possible for Ron to remain at home during his illness.

Grave-side services will be held in the spring for family and friends.  In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Ron’s name to the Ronald McDonald House, Bangor, Maine.
