When I think of Robert Otto Hoinkis, I think of being a kid at Uncle Bob's summer barbeques on Mansion St. where I'd play all day with my cousins: the Linsons and the "Bob Hoink-ies." To Aunt Peg, Scott, Chris, Matt and Tim - sorry for your loss, thinking of you.
Your nephew/cousin,
Mark

I am heartbroken at the loss of your beloved husband and father. Bob was a warm, caring and loving person and he will be sorely missed by family and friends. I will miss our conversations about our family history. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love to all. Ron and Lynn Gibbon
