Arthur Charles Frederick "Chuck" Hintze Obituary

Arthur Charles Frederick Hintze (Chuck) went home to be with his Lord and Savior, passing away on November 12, 2023.

Chuck wants to be remembered first and foremost as a child of God.  He loved his Savior with all his heart and was a true servant of God.

Chuck was born on February 5, 1931, on a farm near Wausau, Wisconsin, to Arthur L. and Dorathea Hintze.  Soon after marrying Janet Krueger in 1951, he was sent to Korea and served two years in the U.S. Army.  After his service, Chuck worked as an assayer for a mining company in Colorado, as well as a chemical company in Texas.  He then settled in Snowflake, Arizona, and worked as a chemist and quality control supervisor at the Paper Mill for nearly thirty years.

Chuck always had a love of the water, which started when he was just a young boy with a canoe.  He grew into an avid sailor who loved being out on the water and communing with God and nature.  Over the years, he owned six sailboards and made over 150 trips to Roosevelt Lake.  He also sailed out to Catalina Island on a trip with his family.

Chuck was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend, always showing patience, kindness, and love.

He loved to serve his church, holding multiple positions across the span of many years.  He helped with the building of the Rock of Ages Lutheran Church in Payson, Arizona, and was always willing to serve in whatever needed to be done.

He was preceded in death by: Janet Carol Krueger Hintze (Wife) October 18, 1933 – June 3, 1981, Margaret Hintze (Wife) December 6, 1926 – November 12, 2005, Glenora Hintze (Wife) October 18, 1939 – October 9, 2022, and Paul S. Hintze (Son) February 27, 1953 – March 21, 2020.

Chuck is survived by his sister, Geri Swihart, his remaining children, Connie Worth, Gary Hintze, and Laurri Davis, as well as his six grandchildren and one great grandchild.

His family is comforted and rejoices with the confidence that he is in heaven with his Lord.  He had an unwavering faith that touched many lives and was a faithful Christian example for many.  There has been such an outpouring of love from so many whose lives were touched by Chuck and his family will be forever grateful.
