He was born to parents Ralph & Sibyl Hinkley in Bay City, MI. He served our country as a Navy Seabee, training in carpentry which he successfully continued this skill as his life career. He was a gifted and skilled carpenter that took pride in precision, quality, detail and craftsmanship. David owned several successful businesses, "David R Hinkley Builders" and "Deck Systems" which he retired from in Castle Rock, Co.

His love of hunting, fishing and nature was passed on to all of his children and grandchildren in some capacity. He had a special little dog "Diva" that was always at his side. At his request, he will be cremated, and his children will spread his ashes at all of his favorite hunting and fishing spots.

I will treasure all the quality time we spent together when you lived with us. Fishing at the cabin, movie watching and oh so many perch dinners. I loved you so much and will see you again some day in heaven. Rest well,
Love , your daughter Sher

Sher, Julie and Steven
My heart aches for you as you go through the days ahead without your dad. It’s hard to let go since they have been in our lives since birth. They have always been there and then they are no longer. It’s hard to grasp that death is a part of life.
Prayers to all of you as you navigate the days ahead.
Much love
