George Alan Hinnant, 61, of Wilson, passed away on Sunday, April 25, 2021, at his coastal home in Pine Knoll Shores, surrounded by his loved ones.

Alan lived life to the fullest and was thankful every day for the love and relationships he was able to share with his family, friends and colleagues. Alan was compassionate, kind, loyal and always put others before himself. He enjoyed building lifelong connections and friendships in every aspect of his life, both personal and professional.

Alan enjoyed spending his time outdoors with his family and friends. Along with his love for boating and fishing, he admired the beauty of sunsets, the peacefulness of the ocean and all of Mother Earth’s natural gifts. Alan’s own positive energy, his ability to make you laugh and his devotion to others brought joy and honor to everyone who he loved and who loved him.

Alan is survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Janie Strickland Hinnant; sons, Adam Landon Hinnant of Houston, Texas, and Andrew “Drew” Christian Hinnant and future daughter-in-law, Kathleen Ann Yakulis of Charlotte; father, Ralph Harold Hinnant of Kenly and his beloved dog, Lillie, and cat, Reese. He is also survived by his aunts, Faye Hall and Sallie Purvis; uncle, Rudolph Hinnant; and many loved cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws and countless friends. Alan was preceded in death by his mother, Janyce Bass Hinnant, and brother, Michael Ray Hinnant.

A Celebration of Life service will be planned for a later date.
