William (Buck) Hyndman Obituary
William Hynman 4th, insurance executive and golfer William (Buck) Hyndman 4th, 72, of Doylestown, formerly of Huntingdon Valley, an insurance executive and accomplished golfer, died at home on Tuesday, July 10th, after a 4 year battle with multiple myeloma. Mr. Hyndman graduated from Abington High School and attended college at the University of Houston. He was a veteran of the U. S. Army where he served in Intelligence. While serving, he won the All-Army Golf Championship. Mr. Hyndman worked at William Hyndman III Insurance Agency founded by his father. In the 1990s, the Hyndman Agency was acquired by Willis Corroon Group, where he worked until last September when his illness forced him to retire. His wife, Eloise, noted that his relationship with his clients was unique, in that they were more "friends" than clients, and who throughout his illness formed a steady stream of visitors to his home. Golf has played a vital part in the Hyndman family for generations. His father, William (Bill) Hyndman III, was a world ranked amateur who played on 5 Walker Cup and 2 World Teams, competed in 51 USGA championships, and won the USGA Senior Championship in 1973 and 1983. Mr. Hyndman followed in his father's footsteps early in life, winning the PIAA Championship his senior year of high school and at the age of 21, winning the Anderson Memorial Four-ball with his father. With his father twice and his son three times, he won the Golf Association of Philadelphia Father-Son Championship. As a member of Huntingdon Valley Country Club, he won the club championship 10 times, and as a member of Pine Valley Golf Club, won their club championship as well as the prestigious Crump Memorial. Mr. Hyndman played in 8 USGA Junior, Amateur, and Senior Championships. The family affair with golf was never more evident than in the 1971 USGA Amateur Championship held at Wilmington where Mr. Hyndman, his brother Tommy, and his father all qualified for the stroke play competition. In addition to his passion for golf, Mr. Hyndman was an avid antique and corvette car collector. He frequently displayed his cars at shows throughout the region where he earned several awards for their authentic restoration. In addition to his wife Eloise (nee Weihenmayer), Mr. Hyndman is survived by his daughter Wendy Hyndman Combs (Stephen) and his son William Hyndman 5th (Jolie); a sister Faith V. Hyndman , the late Thomas M. Hyndman and the late Patsy J. Hyndman; and 5 grandsons Stephen Jr., Harrison, Christian, William VI and Logan. A memorial service is planned for Tuesday, July 17th, at 7:00pm, at Abington Presbyterian Church, 1082 Old York Road, Abington, Pa. 19001. Burial is to be private.
