Eric was born September 30, 1954, in Madison, Tennessee to Hazel Munday Hinkle and the late Joseph Kenneth Hinkle. Eric was well known in the golfing community of Middle Tennessee. He enjoyed watching tennis and college basketball with his mother and especially enjoyed the salmon patties she would make for him.  Holidays with his family, attending church, reading his bible, squirrel hunting and collecting the tails, annual golf trips with his buddies, rock and roll music and watching a movie and eating popcorn especially “A Goodyear” were things Eric enjoyed.

In addition to his mother, Hazel Hinkle, Eric is survived by his wife, Rita Powell Hinkle; his daughter, Leslie (Jed) Hampton; his son Luke (Diona) Hinkle; sister Vicky (David) Lynch and his grandchildren, Dayton Hinkle, Morgan Hinkle, and Lyla Hampton.
