CHARLIE E. HINGSTON Mueller's Tri-Cities Funeral Home Charlie Edward Hingston, 62, of Kennewick passed away peacefully on Monday, June 26th, 2017 after a hard-fought battle with brain cancer. He was born on February 28th, 1955, in Seattle, Washington to William and Alice Hingston. Born and raised in Seattle; he then went on to graduate from Central Washington University in 1979. He married the love of his life Melanie Kiehn in 1979 and together they raised daughter Katie and twin sons Kurtis and Joel. He was a loving and devoted husband, father and granddad. Charlie taught math and science and coached many sports in the Kennewick School District from 1980 to 2013. He positively impacted the lives of thousands of students and athletes through the course of his teaching and coaching career. An accomplished collegiate athlete, he continued to play many sports as an adult. For 25 years he enjoyed summers in Alaska working in the fishing industry with his dad. Charlie loved the outdoors; whether hunting in the fields or fishing in the ocean. One of his favorite places was his cabin in Warm Beach, Washington, where he spent many hours crabbing, shrimping and loving the beach social life. He loved his family dearly but a close second was his love of hunting. An avid hunter and expert marksman, he was highly involved in NASTRA bird dog competitions. Charlie had a winning smile that lit up the room and warmed your heart. He made friends wherever he went. He cherished his family and the time he spent with Melanie, his children and grandchildren. He will be missed by all who knew him. He was preceded in death by his father, Bill Hingston. Charlie is survived by Melanie, his wife of 38 wonderful years, daughter Katie (David) Uberti, sons Kurtis and Joel, grandchildren Nollie and Kasen, his mother Alice and siblings Patty (Roger) Vermilion, Joe (Terry) Hingston, Phil (Debbie) Hingston, and Mary Lou (Cary) Evans. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, July 1st at the Kennewick First Lutheran Church, 418 N. Yelm Street. Memorial donations may be made to University of Washington Medical Center Brain Cancer Research. The family invites you to sign their online tribute wall at www.muellersfuneral
