Hooten was born Dec. 18, 1935, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and grew up in Indiana and Oklahoma. He joined the Navy in 1954 and served in the SeaBees until 1958.

Mr. Hooten worked for the state of Alaska as a fee real estate appraiser, and owned and operated MATSU Appraisals in Wasilla. In 1998 he retired from National Bank of Alaska's Palmer branch.
His family wrote, ``Tom particularly loved Southeast Alaska and requested that his ashes be scattered there. We will miss his wacky sense of humor, gentle smile, and generosity. He was so looking forward to building a dollhouse for his youngest granddaughter when he took ill.''
