Back To Front Page


James A. Hineline, age 86 of Chesterton, IN, went to his Father on September 23, 2016, after a long battle with Parkinsonís disease.

He was born on December 29, 1929, in Liberty Township, IN to Les (Oliver) and Mildred (Barber) Hineline.

James attended Liberty Township School and as a youth enjoyed farming with his team of horses. He proudly served his country as a Corporal in the Army of the United States.

On January 31, 1959 he married Patricia Koutny in Lake Village, IN. Together they were devoted parents to Gregory Hineline (Sharon Reynolds) and Joanne Hineline-Zielke (John). He was proud of his four granddaughters, Megan Sutton (Christopher), Penelope Kyle (William), Andrea Zielke and Natalie Zielke. He found great amusement in the antics of his seven great grandchildren, Montgomery and Agatha Fetters, Charles, Newton, Simon and Annalie Kyle and Zoe Sullivan. Also surviving are sisters, Judy Hineline Lenhart, Elizabeth Hineline Weldy, Marian Hineline Goffoli and aunt, Grace Hineline Crk as well as numerous nieces and nephew.

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Margaret Hineline Stevens and nieces, Cheryl Stevens Miller and Leslie Stevens Richart.

His love for nature and wildlife led Jim to a 12 year career as a conservation officer for the state of Indiana. After 36 years in the construction industry he retired from Tonn & Blank. After retirement, Jim and Pat traveled throughout the 48 continental United States and enjoyed time gardening. He was especially devoted to time with his family.

Jim was an active member of the Indiana Farm Bureau and served as Liberty Township President. He will always be remembered for his calm quiet nature and witty sense of humor.
