Bobby Hinton - One of the greatest men to ever live departed this world on September 18, 2020 at his home in Springdale, Arkansas. Long-time resident of Sikeston, Missouri, Bobby was known for his donuts, his smile, and his hugs. Born September 4, 1937 in Adona, Arkansas to Esther and Jake Hinton. He was the eleventh child of twelve and the baby boy. On September 3, 1959 he married his best friend, Jean Hafford, in Cairo, Illinois; who preceded him in death.

Bobby was a lover of Cubs baseball, his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and his numerous family friends. He served donuts from his workbench at Houchin’s Donuts for 48 years. He was always up for a game of cards, fishing, and a good cup of coffee. He never met a stranger and was always known for a good joke. He loved his life and lived with no regrets.

Bobby is survived by his daughters and son-in-laws, Cindy & Charlie Dyson and Kathy & Brian Lake; his grandsons John & Tammy Brown, who he helped raise and Oliver Dyson, Shiloh Dyson and Billy Dyson; and his great-grandchildren, Chance Fajardo, Samantha Bramlett, Logan Brown, Jacob Brown, Koby Brown, Kendall Hinton, and Zachary Brown. He is also survived by his brothers, Curtis Hinton and JD Hinton and many friends, donut customers, and church family. He is proceeded in death by his mother and father, his wife, his grandson Jack Brown, his great-grandson, Tyler Lake, and nine brothers and sisters.

Bobby believed that he lived his best life and wanted to be remembered for the good he left in this world. He wanted his life to be celebrated, not mourned. In honor of his life, a celebration service will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 3:00 pm at the Sikeston First Assembly of God Church. Fellowship to follow in the church gymnasium.
