Richard 'Dick' Hinz

Reported by Tim Smith

 It was truly a surprise to have lost Dick Hinz so suddenly, 9th of March 2004.

 Jean has just returned from Washington, DC, and reported that his burial at Arlington was just beautiful with about 35 in attendence( I think that is what my wife told me). She and Jean are in the same garden club and we saw him frequently. I was not aware that he had any health problems other than blood pressure which we all seem to have, and needs to be kept under check. He was was 76 years of age, and was born on 8 Nov 1928.
