Lori and I were sad to hear of Cliff's passing. Cliff and I hit it off right away when Bruce introduced me to him ! He was always smiling and quite the joke teller. Right up my alley. He made me feel at ease when I was at the house visiting, like one of the family. He was great. Painting with him was a treat. Stories and jokes made the days go fast. Had quite a few dinners with him and the boys too ! You will be missed Cliff......... Jeff ( Zuke ) and Lori Janusz

I worked with Cliff at Wrightstown for eight years and also happens to be my Aunt Mary Ann's brother. Cliff always had a great sense of humor and was intensely interest in sheapshead and sports. I always organized a fun basketball game of staff against the eighth graders who always thought they could beat us old men and women, but never did. Cliff (the oldest faculty member playing) was our ace in the hole. He didn't want to run up and down the court, so he stationed himself about 25 feet from the basket on offense. When we would feed him the ball, he'd swish 'em every time. I especially remember (1983) when we played Joel's team (which turned out to be probably the best WHS high school team of all time. Although guarded closely, I think by Joel, Cliff netted the winning basket with three seconds on the clock. My thoughts are with all of you.

My sympathies to the entire family. I always enjoyed class, a game of horse or a good chat with Mr. Hinkens. He was a friend and a teacher to me. Terry Coenen
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

To the Hinkens family. My sincere condolences. Your Dad was truly one of the great guys and I was one of those who was told to take a trip on all fours and I still think he was the best.
