Connor Hinklin


Connor Wade Hinklin, 14, of Jasper, died Monday, May 2, 2022.  He was born on April 6, 2008, in Beaumont, to Rachel Nuckels and Caleb Wade Hinklin.

God loving child of the King.  Connor had a heart of compassion, and his desire was to lead worship. He recently earned the achievement of advancing to a National Fine Arts in Orlando, Florida for his singing. 

Connor is loved by a multitude of people. His personality is so infectious which makes him easy to love. He cherished his family and was an outstanding big brother to his three younger siblings. Connor was an amazing friend and cousin. He enjoyed playing video games, karate, swimming and hanging out with his friends and his cousins. He had the honor of being able to serve at two churches and had a true servants’ heart. He was active in both Youth Groups at Jasper First Assembly of God and Gateway Church.  

We will continue to celebrate the life that we had with Connor and to make sure he is never forgotten. We also hold to the hope, given by God, that we will one day be reunited with our son.
