Joseph Hines, Jr. Obituary

Joseph J. Hines Jr., 70, of Collingdale, PA, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on January 18, 2024. Joe was born on February 14,1953 to the late Joseph James Hines Sr. and Florence "Minnie" Stuski. 

Growing up in Miami, Joe spent his summers in Wildwood, NJ, at his grandfather’s hotel. Later, he moved to NE Philadelphia with his mother and sisters. Joe served his country as a Marine veteran of the Vietnam War and was a life member of VFW 5428 where he held various positions and served on the board committee.

A loving family man, Joe is survived by his wife, Elaine Kane Hines. He leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion, survived by his beloved children Brittany (Shane), Lauren (Brian), Joseph III (Elizabeth) and step-daughter Laura (Greg). He was a proud Poppy to Jayden, Lillyanna, Madyson, Autumn, Peyton, and Remington. Step grandfather to Makayla and Delaney. Joe was the brother of Cathy (Thomas) Craig and Maureen (William) Haff. He leaves behind former spouse and dear friend, Denise Hines; as well as nieces, nephews and friends. He was preceded in death by both parents and his sister, Colleen (Marino).

Joe was known as a jack of all trades; working as a utility worker at Little Flower Manor and serving as a part-time limousine driver. Second to being called Dad he loved being called Poppy. Joe’s greatest joy in life was spending time with his children and grandchildren. He always took great pride in appearance and was available to lend a helping hand. Along with an infectious smile he had a way about him that made you want to be in his presence. Joe enjoyed taking family vacations, was an avid Philadelphia sports fan and life of the party. May Joe's soul rest in peace, and may his memory bring comfort to those who loved him.
