Doyle Raymond Hinds

Doyle Raymond "Ray" Hinds, 87, died Tuesday, May 1, 2018, peacefully at his home surrounded by family.


He leaves his wife, Jo Anne Hinds; daughters Kristy Hinds and Lynda Hinds; granddaughter Kai Riley Hinds; sister Ernestine Nelson; brother-in-law Ralph Fox; nephews Robert Kronberger, Karl Fox, and Ronald Kronberger; extended family and dear friends.


He was preceded in death by his mother, Hazel Dell Hinds; his father, Doyle Raymond Hinds; his sisters Kathleen Fox and Margaret May Hinds; and his nephew Paul Fox.


He was born in Mountainair, New Mexico on October 6, 1930, where he lived until moving to Albuquerque to attend Albuquerque High School. After graduating with honors in 1947, Raymond served his country as a Private First Class in the U.S. Army. He went on to attend the University of New Mexico, where he earned Bachelor’s degrees in Chemical and Electrical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Science, and was a member of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. He made his home in Bosque Farms with his wife and family.


Raymond was employed for over 31 years at Sandia National Laboratories as an electrical engineer before retiring in 1988. During his career, he worked on some of the world’s earliest computers, the development of local area network fiber optic technology, the F4 Phantom crash test, and the solar Power Tower.


Raymond was an avid reader who loved golf and travel and had a deep interest in astronomy, quantum theory, and the remote parts of the world. Quick-witted with a sharp sense of humor, Raymond enjoyed spending time with his granddaughter; watching his beloved Lobos play ball; doting on the many family pets, including Sassafras the Chinese pug and Calpurnia the Siamese cat; and solving quadratic equations in his spare time.


In keeping with the wishes of Raymond, there will be no services. Condolences for the family may be offered online at: www.riversidefunerals.com/families-in-our-care.php

Jo Anne, it's been a long time since I've sent a Christmas card or heard anything about you and your family. Pat Waldie Byrnes and I saw each other about six times a year, and I have known Lila Pierce since the 50's. My sincerest sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your husband. You'll face some difficult times ahead dealing with a new chapter in your life, but I'm sure you'll have lots of support and help from friends and family. Know I and others are thinking of you.
