Obituary

Bobby Lee Hinson was born September  30,  1941 at Lowrance Hospital in Mooresville, N.C. to John Lee Hinson and Elsie Johnson Hinson and he went to his heavenly home on June 28, 2017. He was preceded in death by his parents and only sibling, his brother Frank. Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife, Charlotte and his three loving daughters, Deborah of Edgewater, Sara of Chapel Hill and Susan of Atlanta; and nine grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Bobby grew up in Mooresville, North Carolina and graduated from Troutman High School in 1959. Immediately upon graduation (at the age of 17) his Naval Reserve Unit was activated  and he was in boot camp when he turned 18. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Viet Nam era and was based on a ship in the Phillippines. After his military service he worked at various jobs primarily in air conditioning and refrigeration and attended Central Community College in Charlotte, N.C.  He had a maternal uncle who moved to the Daytona Beach area and he visited and came of love the area so in 1985 he and his wife relocated to Florida and he never wanted to leave and they have lived in their home in Edgewater for 30 years.

 After moving to Florida Bobby worked in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration until he joined  the Florida Park Service from which he retired. His last assignment was at Gamble Rodgers State Recreation Area in Flagler Beach, Florida. In the past he was active in the Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 44  as well as the United Methodist Church.

 His family requests that any remembrances be directed to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or the Methodist Children’s Home in Enterprise, Florida.
