Obituary of Daryl A. Hinkson
It is with great sadness that his family announces the passing of Daryl Anthony Hinkson on Friday, January 13, 2023. He was the beloved father of daughter Jessica Hinkson of Ashland, MA and son Dennis Hinkson, daughter-in-law Kimberly, and grandsons Gabriel and Logan of Southington, CT. He also leaves a brother Robert Hinkson and wife Jeannette of Kissimmee, FL, brother-in-law Gerald Unwin and wife Rosemarie of Southington, CT, cousin-in-law Barbara Duffy of Old Saybrook, CT, and several nieces and nephews.
Born February 3, 1946, Daryl was the son of the late Stanley and Pauline Hinkson. He served his country in Vietnam, earning the Purple Heart for his bravery and sacrifice. After returning home, he met and married the love of his life, Janet (Unwin), who predeceased him in 2003.
Daryl worked as a skilled electrician for many years throughout central CT, recalling most fondly his many years at New Britain General Hospital where he is remembered for his kindness and ease in making new friends.
He was happiest playing with his grandkids, fishing on the open water, chasing down genealogy leads, working with stained glass, wrestling with very large dogs, and tinkering with one of his countless ongoing projects.
Funeral services for Daryl will be held Wed. (Jan 18) with a service at 10:00AM at Farrell Funeral Home, 110 Franklin Sq. New Britain. Burial with Military Honors will follow in St. Thomas Cemetery, 209 Belleview Ave, Southington CT. Visitation will be held Tuesday evening from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at the funeral home.
