James Henry Hinton, the son of late Charles Hinton and Grace Fairwhite Hinton, lived in Statesville, N.C., and was 77 years old when he passed away Sunday, June 7, 2020 at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C. He will be laid to rest in Jackson, Mich., where his mother lays.
James worked for Clark Equipment, and assisted the opening of a new facility in Statesville, from where he later retired from after 36 years of service.
Busy with his favorite hobbies such as mowing, building, using his tractor, dancing, and spending time with family, he always made time to watch Pastor John Hagee from the Cornerstone Church located in San Antonio, Texas.
He is survived by his son, Gerald Thomas Hinton of Huntersville, N.C.; and his two daughters, Christine Hinton Griffith of Hickory, N.C., and Loretta Ann Northrup of Huntersville, N.C., all of whom loved him deeply. With one brother, Donald Hinton of Springport, Mich., his family is further extended by six grandchildren, Justin Lee Hinton, Zechariah Willioms Yarbrough, Amanda Ann Northrup, Megan Marie Northrup, Matthew James Griffith, Heather Marie Griffith, Madison Lee Hinton and McKayla Nicole Hinton.
