Nelson Todd Hinkle, 80, of Fishers, who lived his life for the sake of the gospel of Christ Jesus, faithfully completed the race marked out for him, peacefully passing from the loving embrace of his family into the arms of his Savior on Monday, October 3, 2022 at Grand Brook Memory Care in Fishers. He was born on December 6, 1941, to John, Sr. and Lela (Todd) Hinkle in Knox County, Indiana.
Todd’s life was defined by humility, humor, and love for Christ and his fellow man. Following the receipt of a bachelor’s degree from his beloved alma mater, Taylor University in Upland, Indiana, and a master’s degree from the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne, Indiana, his servant’s heart and strong work ethic characterized his long career as a middle school teacher (Miracle Hill School & Children’s Home in South Carolina, Huntington Community Schools in Huntington, Belzer Middle School in Lawrence Township, and Heritage Christian School in Indianapolis); his joyful service to the local church (Old Bethel United Methodist Church and Northside Baptist Church, both in Indianapolis); and his love and dedication to his wife of almost 50 years and their two daughters and their husbands and children. Out of his passionate zeal for Christ and his love for all people, Todd never stopped proclaiming the good news of God’s salvation, that, “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Rom. 10:9)
Todd is survived by his wife, Suzanne Hinkle; daughters, Stephanie (Brian) Gambrel and Sarah (Kelly) Jones; grandchildren, Elliott, Graham, and Naomi Jones; siblings Phoebe Ivers, Nancy Cobb, Roger Hinkle, and Jack Hinkle; and many nieces, nephews, other family members, and dear friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, as well as brothers Harlan Hinkle, John Hinkle, Jr., and Jerry Hinkle.
Visitation will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday, October 7, 2022, with services immediately following at 12:00 p.m., at Randall & Roberts Fishers Mortuary, 12010 Allisonville Rd., Fishers, with Chaplain (COL) David Golden, US Army, Ret. officiating.
