HINCKLEY, Jeffrey A.- Of Malden, passed on January 10th after a valiant year long battle with pancreatic cancer. Devoted husband of Tina (Mono) Hinckley. Beloved father of Jessica Coppi, her wife Michelle Coppi and grandfather to their son Jackson, of Nashua, NH. Lovingly survived by his youngest daughter Jillian Hinckley of Malden, MA. Loving son of the late Patricia Ann (Pond) Hinckley. Brother of Norman Hinckley and Christopher Hinckley both of Cleveland, Ohio, along with Tina’s sister and brother-in-law Patricia and Robert Smith, Sr. whom he loved dearly. Jeffrey was a unique sort of historian, who carried friendships across decades, always managing to bridge the gaps between geography and lifestyle. Beloved spokesman for his cherished Watertown High Class of ‘76, he was someone who revived your youth when you reunited with him. Proud graduate of the former Morrisville State College, Jeff studied to be a park ranger but spent many years working in the healthcare finance. Jeffrey dedicated over 15 years to Boston Children's Hospital in international finance before his diagnosis in December of 2018. Jeff’s life was filled with great travels, coast to coast, continent to continent, where he took in the tradition, the land, and life of where he was and made it a part of him. His girls, Tina, Jess, and Jillian, were his whole world, but he made his friends feel the same way. Jeffrey was eloquent beyond measure and always made time to tell you he loved you. His bright light will be felt in each sunrise and his praises will be sung at many tables of great food, drinks, family and friends for years and years to come. Family and friends are kindly invited to pay respects in the Carroll Funeral Home, 721 Salem Street, (Maplewood Square) MALDEN on Saturday, January 18th from 10 AM - 2 PM. Services will conclude with interment in Watertown, New York come better weather. The family will announce details at a later date; they appreciate your continued patience and support as they plan.
