November 8, 1931 - January 17, 2021
Softly in the morning, you heard a gentle call, you took the hand God offered you, and quietly left us all… Edward “Ed” J. Hintz, 89, of Windham Summit, PA went to be with the Lord in the early morning on January 17, 2021. He was born in Philadelphia, PA on November 8, 1931, a son of the late Edmund and Julia (Konschak) Hintz. Ed spent his childhood summers at his Uncle Al and Aunt Suzanne’s Konschak Farm ~ a place that holds many fond memories. Ed graduated from Frankfort High School and became a master plumber under the care of his uncles’ tutelage. In 1972, he married Carolyn Klotz and have shared nearly 49 years together. They moved to Windham Summit in 1976 and in 1988, he built their home. Ed and Carolyn enjoyed traveling by motorcycle, taking numerous trips across the countryside, especially the Thousand Islands. He was a member of the Greater Valley Assembly of God and had a passion for the Scripture and could quote many passages from memory. Together, Ed and Carolyn shared a love for nature, caring for farm animals, cultivating a large garden, and for the last ten years, they became beekeepers. Ed will be missed by his wife, Carolyn; his children and their spouses: Raymond Hintz, Susan (Hintz) and Dennis Sutherlin, John and Marie Hintz, Heidi Hintz; his step-children: Wendy Lightcap Witman and William Lightcap; his 10 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. He is also remembered by his sisters and their husbands: Janice and Jack Harrington and Elaine and Charles Christian. He was predeceased by his parents, his son Roy Hintz, and daughter-in-law Sue Hintz. Abiding with the families wishes there will be no viewing hours or funeral service. A family gathering will be held in the Spring when the birds are singing and the trees are budding.
