Derl F. Sonny Hinkal

Derl F. Sonny Hinkal, 68, of Kenosha, died on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at HCR Manorcare Kenosha.

Born on Oct. 9, 1945, in Williamsport, Pa., he was the son of the late Derl and Anna (Foy) Hinkal. He was raised in New York, moving to Illinois and then Kenosha.

Derl met the lovely Nancy Waite right after she graduated from high school. He married his soul mate on July 25, 1969.

For many years, Derl was a pipefitter. He was employed with Culligan Water Softener Company and was later in maintenance at Kids R Us.

Derl and his wife, Nancy loved to travel. Their goal was to visit every continental U.S. state and they came real close to it. He also enjoyed the time he spent running the bingo games at Glenwood Apartments.

Derl is survived by his loving wife, Nancy; his two sisters, Sue (Bob) VerMeersch of Newark, NY and Nancy Hinkal of Rochester, NY; his nephew, Alton Morrell of Vina, AL; and his niece, Nancy Lee (Jim) Morrell Horst of Ingleside, IL.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Patricia Morrell.

In accordance with Derls wishes, private funeral services will be held.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at HCR Manorcare, for the wonderful care that they provided to Derl.
