Charles Bernhard Hingst, age 96 passed away September 11, 2018. Preceded in death by 1st wife, Judith Chancey Hingst; 2nd wife Dorothy Juanita Patterson Hingst; daughter, Linda Hingst Pinion; parents, Hans & Lillian Hingst; sister, Ruth Hingst Pittard; survived by loving daughters, Ellen (Jeremy) Wheat; Susan Hingst (Douglas) Martel; son in law, Phillip Pinion; grandsons, Phillip “Chip” (Mandy) Pinion II, Charles “Chad”(Tammy) Pinion; great grandchildren, A.J. Kaylee, Paige, Tryson, brother, Eric Hingst; step sons, Pat Patterson, Jay Patterson, Jack Patterson and a host of family and friends. Charlie was a loving husband, best father ever, grandfather, great grandfather and friend. His love for the Lord was apparent to all and his compassion for others will live on in the memories and heart of family and friends, Charlie will be missed by all. Charlie likes to point out the uniqueness of his birth date and that he shares a birthday with George Washington. Growing up, Charlie lived in several places throughout the south, but he is especially proud of his time in Georgia at Georgia Tech. If you ask about his time there, he'll say, "I'm a rambling wreck from Georgia Tech!" Instead of beginning his junior year of college, Charlie joined the Merchant Marines as a radio officer in WWII. After spending three and a half years with the Merchant Marines, Charlie went back home to finish his degree. When he talked with the Registrar, she told him he would have to go all the way back to Freshman Math! In total, it took Charlie twelve years to graduate college because of his time in the Merchant Marines that was thrown into the middle. Charlie eventually graduated with his degree in engineering. For many years, Charlie managed the Otis Elevator Company in Nashville and eventually retired from there. Charlie is one of the most joyful people to be around and is loved by all. Gathering of family and friends Friday September 14th 4-7pm at Hermitage Funeral Home and Saturday 10 till 12 noon at Donelson Fellowship. Funeral Service Saturday September 15th 1pm at Donelson Fellowship Church.

When I worked for IM (Foreign Missions) Charlie Hingst was one of the first to introduce himself to me. We struck a cord of friendship that has lasted many years. Right next to my Dad, he was the finest man that I knew. He was a true sweetheart. All of the women in the office knew that he was truly our friend. I remember taking him my exercise bike after he had knee replacement. He wanted to bring it back but I declined. Judy was very special too. She sent me recipes that I have to this day and use on special days. He was a very good example of what a true Christian is. I loved you Charlie and am very sure that you are on streets of gold. Sorry that I did not know of his passing until today.

I met Charlie at International Missions in Antioch, where I served from 1981. As I think back over those years, there are only a few people who stand out in my memory as consistently friendly, helpful, jolly and affirming. Charlie is at the top of that list. We gave him a little picture of our kids when we left the USA for Spain in 1982. When we returned four years later, Charlie still had that picture, as well as eight and twelve years later. As a man who had already lived a life full of rich experiences when he came to IM, he remembered all our names. Charlie was truly a gentleman who consistently chose to serve and encourage others, and always with a smile and a laugh I will never forget. What a great example to follow. What a blessing to have had the privilege of knowing Charlie Hingst.

I was with International Missions, both as a missionary, and in the home office. What a delight it was to be around Charlie. He exuded the joy of the Lord, as well as kindness, helpfulness, and a warm spirit. We who knew him were greatly blessed. Our prayers on behalf of the family, even as we celebrate his homecoming.

Of Charlie Hingst, someone once commented "Don't judge Christianity by other Christians. Except for Charlie Hingst." I had the great honor to serve alongside this precious saint for eight years at the Free Will Baptist International Missions office (IM, inc.). He was always a ray of sunshine--full of joy, compassion, generosity, and the goodness of God. My life is better because I knew him and I will always remember Charlie Hingst.

Always loved when Uncle "BB" would come to Georgia and visit. He looks so much like my dad ( his baby brother) later in their lives, that whenever they were together everyone could tell they were brothers. Will miss his loving and caring attitude towards everyone he met. Love you uncle Charlie.
