Alexander Orr Hinely passed away Thursday, June 27, 2013. In his final months and weeks, Alex was surrounded by his family and passed peacefully after a year-long battle with cancer, which he handled with as much grace and bravery as he lived his 73 years of life.
A retired Naval Commander and engineer with years of experience in the space-industry, Alex and his wife, Betty, spent most of their time in Brevard County, where they raised their two children.
Alex is survived by his wife, Betty; son, Thomas; daughter-in-law, Peg Hinely; grandson Finn (five); daughter, Elizabeth Lagasse; son-in-law, Michael Lagasse; two grandchildren, Grayson (six) and Sidney (four); and his sister, Mary Ann Hinely.
Services will be held at beach Funeral Home in Indian Harbour Beach at 11:00 am on Saturday, July 6, 2013.
