Ace in our hearts          Send a link to a friend

Once again Lincoln has lost another well-known man.

"Ace" Hinman passed away this last weekend. Ace was well-known for his love of sports and of kids. He served the Lincoln sport scene for many, many years.

Ace was Lincoln's curmudgeon for as long as I knew him. I loved this part of Ace and I used to call him Lincoln's answer to Andy Rooney.

I can still remember the days and days of playing basketball with Ace and Jerry "Loop" Alberts at Jefferson School. Those, of course, were kinder times. Ace was one of the best basketball players I ever saw -- and -- he never gave up! I will always remember Ace as one of my best friends.

My wife (Marilyn Derrickson Weindorf) and I extend our condolences and best wishes to Scotty and the children. Ace will always be in our hearts.

Don Weindorf
