Daniel Paul Hinds, 77, of Engle­wood, Fla., passed away Mon­day, Jan. 18, 2016, at Venice Regional Bayfront Health Hospital.

Born July 23, 1938, in Oss­ian, N.Y., to the late Lewis and Clara (Berry) Hinds, Dan served in the U.S. Air Force from 1957 to 1961. He moved to Engle­wood in 1986 from Dans­ville, N.Y.

Dan’s zest for life was con­ta­gious. He lived his life to the fullest. His pride over­flowed when talk­ing of his chil­dren, grand­chil­dren, and great-grandchildren. His legacy lives on in his family’s lov­ing memories.

He is pre-deceased by his wife, Diane, in 1987.

Dan is sur­vived by his four daugh­ters:  DeEtte (Rus­sell) Alexan­der, Lauri (Dou­glas) Ellis, Sharon Boyd, and Erin (Wayne) Wal­ton; two sons, Den­nis (Marie) Hinds and Jack “Rick” (Erin) Hinds; his com­pan­ion, Janet Clark; three sis­ters; many grand­chil­dren and great-grandchildren; nieces, nephews and friends.

A memo­r­ial cel­e­bra­tion will be held at 1 p.m. Sat­ur­day, Jan. 23, at the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge #1933, 55 W. Dear­born St. Mil­i­tary hon­ors will be ren­dered by the U.S. Air force.

Memo­r­ial con­tri­bu­tions may be made to Par­ents in Action of Autism, 21450 Gibral­tar Drive, Suite 2, Port Char­lotte, FL 33952 in mem­ory of Dan Hinds.
