David Monroe Hinton was born March 10, 1948 in Harlem NY to the Late Woodrow and Bernice Hinton who have preceded him in passing on. He was the 2nd oldest child of the 8 children born of that union. <br />
David was raised in the Bronx and attended PS 21, Sousa JH S, and Evander Child's HS. David left high school during his junior year to enlist in the US Army. He served from November 1965 to November 1968. While enlisted he was actively engaged in Vietnam and did 3 tours of duty. He was honorably discharged. When he returned home in 1968 he found the world had changed. <br />
He had a lot of struggles and coped the best way he knew how. Through those struggles he was able to be David. Who was that? The guy with the smile. The guy who made a way out of no way. The guy as the Bible says was the generous giver. If you didn't have he made sure he helped you get it. He was an "on call guy." (Call David if your a.c. broke, fan, tv, vcr, frige, washing machine etc). He was there. Let us not forget the guy with the shopping carts. <br />
He had a good heart and a brilliant mind. They say a mind a terrible thing to waste. He was always thinking of ways to make things right, and get things done. Those who really knew David understood the plight of a veteran who never really left Vietnam. David we're gonna miss you. <br />
David departed this earth on April 16, 2019. He leaves behind 3 daughters (Lisa, Lana, Danielle). 2 siblings (Robert and Louise). 5 Nieces (Aysha, Latonya, Nailah, Mandida, Sanura). 4 Nephews (Shaun, Raymond, Shahid, Askia). Great nieces and nephews and great great nieces and nephews. Long time partner Sharon King <br />
