Dear Marilyn and family of Warren,
Sara and I were diagnosed with covid19 on Thursday last week and could not attend Warren's funeral. We are so sorry we could not see you. We have a lot of fond memories of motorcycle rides, parties, etc. with Warren and Marilyn. I well remember when Warren partly disassembled my 1966 Triumph and got it running in top shape. I also remember trading that Triumph to him for the 1971 Honda CB750. What a machine, and what fun rides we took together with the old gang of Harris's, Wheelers, Boyles, and several others. We are thinking of you in your time of loss, but know the memories will always be there!
Sincerely, Max and Sara Kuhns.

So very many extra special memories of a man who was always there when you needed him...... always!!
Lots of “drive abouts” for dinner, ice cream or just being together! Always blushed when I thanked him, with a kiss on the cheek, for what he did for us! That silly smile of his when he was trying to tell a ‘not very true’ story! That smile always gave him away!! ❤️
Rest in peace , Mr. Hinton! We will do our best to help Marilyn out like you always did for us!
Prayers for Marilyn, Darren and Dirk and the rest of his family!
We will sure miss you! Love you!!!

I had the privilege of working closely with Warren in the early days of the Cummins’ Midrange Engine Project beginning in 1980. He was always congenial and smiling while working on tough engineering issues. My life has been blessed by knowing him, and I will miss thinking of him creating another street rod masterpiece.

We’ll never forget our time spent together whether it was going out to eat, driving the backroads for a different way home, to our memorable trips to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge together, our motorcycle rides and not to forget camping together when the kids were young. Warren could fix almost anything. He always was there when called upon to come over and help or when asked questions about what to look for when needing help with an automotive issue. He was a likeable person with a kind and giving heart. Everyone that knew Warren will miss him greatly. Prayers for Marilyn and the boys for your loss but know he is with HIM in heaven.

Warren and I worked together in the Service Tools department at Cummins. He was one of the best employees Cummins ever had. He and another guy, Ronnie Boyd, in our group, had a lot of fun. I will always remember Warren. We went to St. Louis Cummins Distributor together. On that trip we drove down to see the famous "Arch" on that trip. He was a great guy and I'm sure the family and other Cummins guys will miss him a lot
Sure sorry for your loss.

What a wonderful man ... my time getting to know him was way too short, but he sure made his way to my heart! "My Girls" is what he called me and Danielle and he was our Daddy Warren! Amazing man gone way too soon. Warren .. maybe one of these days I'll get to go for ice cream in that '37 Impala. : ) My love and sympathy to Dirk, Marilyn and Darren.
