Angus, We could walk into a family gathering and I would hear the rich tone of your voice recanting a story from days gone by. Always so colorful , large and full of life...just so YOU. I will miss the visits out in Chuckatuck around the Holidays with Mac. I just know you and daddy are hooting it up in the heavens! Most likely taking Sentry out for a little run about. You will be greatly missed! Love you, Heather

We lost a good friend. Angus Hines - The youngest 96 year old we've known.

We shared trips, nice dinners, and he passed along his coined phrases and a love of yachting... He was his own man, and knew nearly everyone (or their family) in every city. While he no longer piloted an airplane (but still had his pilots license), he always wanted to return to the cockpit for one last adventure. He loved his "M/V Sentry" and gracously hosted us a few times. As we were not only his friends, but also his neighbor he often would venture across the hall at the Pilot House and just pop in to have dinner with us or just chat with us on our porch - which he seemed to enjoy. Even after he moved to Harbors Edge, he would still venture over to the Pilot House for a chat or a bite. He certainly made a lasting impression on Bruce Robertson and I and he will be missed. - Thanks for the memories Angus!

My condolences to Russ, Marilyn, Mac and Buzz. As I told Marilyn its hard to remember back when there was no Angus. He was a steadfast citizen and loved his hometown of Suffolk. He always took time to carry on a conversation and never once did he forget to ask about my family. He was always there to help others in time of need, never asking for thanks. When my son was born, he was the first person to visit my wife in the hospital and as I was an employee of his at the time, he gave me a week off with pay to be with my family. He was a true southern gentleman who will be missed by all who knew him. Calm seas, Angus.

My condolences to the family and his many friends. He was a good friend when my father and I went into business in Suffolk. He always shopped locally if he could and supported Suffolk in many ways. He was from a lost breed, not to be seen again. You will be missed sir.

Angus was a frequent visitor to our USS Wisconsin Radio Club meetings. Although the obituary doesn't mention it among his other accomplishments,Angus was a ham radio operator. W4IKD.We always enjoyed his stories and camaraderie. As he was ways youthful in nature,I thought he was a great role model for us aging senior citizens. We had and always will miss Angus at our Wisconsin meetings. Resquiat in Pace!

Angus and my Father grew up together so this makes me very sad to see. Always so kind to my family. When Angus learned my father had only a few weeks to live he called my Father and said Jack if you had one wish what would it be,just name it.Being the simple man my Father always was he said Angus can we load the family up on the Sentry and take a short spin and within days his wished was granted. We lost a good man . My prayers are with the family and Angus rest in peace Buddy

To all of the Hines family, I am sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. I was a long time vendor for the Sentry Food Marts and I appreciate him allowing me to work his stores. Even though I didn’t know him personally, I appreciate the fact that his company allowed me to put my products in his stores. I hope that Mr. Hines will truly Rest In Peace. Most sincerely, Jim of Jim’s Distributing.

Yes, Angus was a fine southern gentleman, an honorable man, and great employer. I worked for Angus with at Smithfield Oil Company in Smithfield, Virginia as a budget manager for B.F. Goodrich Tire Company in the late 50's and early 60's. I always had great admiration and respect for his caring of his employees. I will never forget when I married Ann Crocker in January 1961 that Angus gave me his credit card to use on our honeymoon. Today, and through the years, Ann and I have enjoyed the beautiful candelabra's on our dining room table that Angus gave us as a wedding present. Precious Memories - that warm the heart! With Sincere Sympathy to his family.

Jim Litten
