Robert Hinsche

It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Robert Hinsche on December 5, 2014 at 6:25 am after a brief battle with cancer.

He is survived by his partner Cathy Simon, sons Jack and Alex (mother Karen), parents Doug and Sheila; brothers Donald (Sandy) and Keith (Amelia); nephews Douglas and Kole (Kaiden) and niece Kassie.

A very committed father to his sons, Rob coached hockey for many years in the PGMHA system and was a well loved and respected coach.

Following in his father’s footsteps, Rob was a locomotive engineer for BC Rail for 26 years, and most recently with Shaw Cable for 6 years.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Coast Inn of the North on December 11th at 13:00 railroad time or 1:00 pm for the rest of us.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the PG Hospice House would be greatly appreciated.
