Fred Carl Hinkel 77 of Moss Point, MS passed away Sat. March 25, 2017. He retired from Ingalls Shipbuilding. God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you
and whispered “Come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you as you slowly slipped away and though we loved you dearly we couldn’t make you stay.
Your golden heart stopped beating your tired hands put to rest; God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best.

Fred is preceded in death by his parents; Bill & Bernice Hinkel, a precious nephew, David Hinkel, and close friend Laurie Burkes.

He is survived by his loving wife, Linda, a daughter Jeannie (Carey) Goff, his grandchildren who were precious to his heart, Nate Goff, Jillian Goff, Caleb Goff and Alex Goff, his siblings and their spouses, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
