Lawrence Hyink Jr.
April 17, 1923 ~ June 27, 2014
Resident of San Mateo, CA
Survived and mourned by his brother Roy Hyink, his sister Margret Oswald, his wife Jordyce Ann (nee Kuhm), his children Lawrence III, Ann and Christopher, his grandson Recan Marcus DiNapoli, his great-granddaughter Olivia Helena DiNapoli, his grand-daughter-in-law to be Amy Marisa Yindiphol, his daughters-in-law Mary Kathleen Hartman and Michele Torrey and his dog Opie and cats Ivan and Pandora. A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
He served his country during the Second World War in the U.S. Army Air Force. He was a member of the149th Army Airways Communications System Wing serving in Chengtu, China.
He graduated with a Masters Degree in American History from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He became a high school teacher working primarily at Aragon High School in San Mateo from 1960 until his retirement in 1986, after which he was an educational consultant at Stanford University for two years.
He spent many years after his retirement doing exhaustive research into his Family's genealogy in the United States and the Netherlands culminating in the publication of the monumental Familie Hijink-Hyink A Family Documentary and Pictorial Genealogy in 2000.
He was a genuinely decent person who despite the failing health of his body remained engaged, alert, outgoing and charming until almost his last moments. He was blessed with a long and productive life. He will be missed by his family, his friends and acquaintances and all those thousands of students whose lives he touched.
