Henry Alton Hines

Henry Alton Hines, 69, of Newberry, Florida passed away
on Wednesday, March 3, 2021, with his loving wife and
daughter by his side at home- following a ten-year battle
with cancer. Henry was born in Gainesville, Florida on
April 24, 1951 to the late parent’s Lee Roy and Blanche
Hines. Following graduation from Newberry High School in
1969, Henry went to work with The City of Gainesville as a
lineman. After 35 years with the City of Gainesville, he
retired and worked with The City of Newberry for 8 years.
While working for both cities and after retirement, Henry
raised cattle and hay on the Hines farm in the Forest Grove
area. Over the years Henry enjoyed family hunting, fishing,
riding horses, raising his cattle and was a jack of all tradesbuilding most anything. He is survived by his wife of 44
years, Renotia Slaughter Hines; his daughter Amy Hines
Adams (Scott), and granddaughter Rylee Adams; his brother
Jimmy Hines; and sisters Erma Hines Cobb and Katie Hines
Hadsock, all from the Newberry area. He was preceded in
death by his younger brother Glover Hines. Henry is also
survived by many nieces, nephews, and family members
that will always remember him for his fun loving humor,
valuable wisdom of knowledge, and advice he gave over the
years. The family will receive friends from 10:00 until
11:00 a.m. on Saturday March 6, 2021 at Milam Funeral
Home in Newberry, with a service following immediately
