August 10, 1957 - January 6, 2018

A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 13, at Jordonia United Methodist Church, 4225 Cato Road, Nashville, Tennessee 37218. The family will receive visitors from 1 to 3 p.m. with a celebration of Mark's life at 3; the Rev. Rosemary Brown will officiate. There will be no viewing of the body. The family requests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to Jordonia United Methodist Church. No flowers please.

Mark's great-grandfather James Oscar Winfrey helped build the church at Jordonia. Mark's daughter Lyda Grace Hinton is part of the fifth generation to sit on "our pew," so we are certain there is nowhere else he would rather we all celebrate his beautiful life. Everyone is welcome.

Surviving is his beloved daughter, Lyda Grace Hinton; one brother, Robert Todd (Dawn) Hinton; niece, Courtney Paige Hinton; nephew, John Garrett Hinton; nephew, David Blain Broyles; niece, Ada Katherine (Katie) Broyles; nephew, Jonathan Philip Broyles; and many other relatives and friends whom he cherished in his own special way.

Mark was born August 10, 1957, to John Edward and Evelyn Winfrey Hinton of Nashville. Mark grew up in a loving home with a baby brother he adored, Todd. His family was surrounded by loving grandparents, uncles and aunts, cousins, and dear church and community friends. To quote Mark: "That's where we came from! Good-hearted, kind people."

Jordonia United Methodist was Mark's church home from birth. He devoted countless hours to the restoration of the church and loved the congregation there with all his heart.

A 1975 graduate of Dupont High School in Hermitage, Mark also attended Volunteer Community College from 1975-1976.

Mark spent most of his career in customer service positions and is fondly remembered for his fun spirit and story-telling. He easily formed loyal, lasting relationships with his customers and coworkers, and was most recently employed by Publix. Mark's career included working for Cracker Barrel, South Star Moulding & Supply, Variety Jewelry, Tarkington Showroom, and Harvey's Department Store.

Mark was an avid reader, he loved history -especially southern; he was also an expert on Nashville and Tennessee history, a gifted gardener, and the family historian. He was a big talker and loved to laugh. He loved and was loved, and will be greatly missed by so many.
