McKee Hinshaw, homesteaded in Yuma Valley, Ariz.  He graduated from Yuma High School and delivered mail in the area before entering Whittier College.  He also studied at Arizona State Teachers College.  He earned his bachelor of science and master of science degrees at USC.  He and Florence Marie Walin were married in Phoenix, Ariz., in 1932.  He taught school in Yuma and Somerton for eight years before settling in Holtville in 1940.  He and his brother, joined later by Buster Knight and Tommy Clark, established Hinshaw Brothers Texaco Service center.  He was an active member of Holtville United Methodist Church.  He was a longtime active member of Chamber of Commerce.  He was a Mason, a member of Masonic Lodge 425, Scottish Rites bodies and Order of Eastern Star.  He was a supporter of, and volunteer in, numerous Imperial Valley projects and developments.  He was active in Imperial Valley Red Cross, United Way and Rotary Club.  Survivors include his wife of 58 years, Florence Marie; a son and two daughters, Carl A. of El Centro, Mary Ellen Boyer of Lemon Grove and Marjorie Cook of Brawley; a brother and two sisters, Paul of Vista, Mary Sharp of Porterville and Wilma Cantrell of Pasadena; six grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.  Memorial contributions in Mr. Hinshaw's name may be sent to Imperial Valley College Scholarship Fund, P.O.
