Feb. 9, 1945-Aug. 13, 2019
At 11:23 p.m. on August 13, 2019, Bucky Hatcher won his final round while surrounded by family at his home in Anaconda.
Born to Irvie and Dorothy “Ma" Hatcher on February 9, 1945 he joined brothers Ron and Don at the family home in Anaconda Montana. The family grew in the coming years to include brothers Jack and Bob, rounding out the five Hatcher Boys.
In his early years he delivered newspapers, shot marbles to become a formidable champion, boxed his way to many a victory, and spent many years on the football and baseball fields. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping with the family, starting with his parents and brothers and continued to enjoy these activities with his wife Marie and their five children.
He married Marie Theresa Ohman on October 20, 1962 and they welcomed five children into their home together: Tammy, Steve, Ron, Julie and Scott. They eventually purchased and made their family home at 615 East 3rd Street.
He was the consummate self-employed entrepreneur whose final endeavors were Uncle Bucks a bar and restaurant in Warm Springs and Paumie's Porkies in Anaconda.
Bucky was preceded in death by his parents, Irvie and Dorothy Hatcher, his mother and father-in-law John and Jeanne Ohman, his brother Don, brother-in-law Tim Ohman and grandson Jeffrey Thomas.
He is survived by his wife Marie of the family home in Anaconda, daughter Tammy (Rod) Scott of Anaconda, son Steve (Kim) Hatcher of Anaconda, son Ron (Cindra) Hatcher of Piscataway, NJ, daughter Julie (fiancé Tim Sprowles) Hatcher of Glasgow, KY and son Scott (Amanda) Hatcher of Anaconda. Brothers Ron (Nita) Hatcher of Anaconda, Jack (Ruth Ann) Hatcher of Helena and Bob Hatcher of San Diego CA. Brothers and sisters-in-law Mick (Elaine) Ohman; Carol Ohman, Jim (Keiran) Ohman, Bob (Debbie) Ohman, Larry (Peggy) Ohman, Ken (Darcy) Ohman, Debbie (Steve) Grasso, Terri (Ben) Sigman and Genine (Stacey) Wade. Bucky was blessed with 18 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren.
Services will be Saturday, August 17, 2019 at Longfellow Finnegan Riddle Funeral Home in Anaconda at 10:30 a.m. with interment following at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Anaconda. A gathering will follow at the VFW Hall. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to Anaconda Pintler Hospice.
