KENNETH LEE HINCKA
Kenneth Lee Hincka age 69 of Fenton, formerly of Posen, passed away May 4, 2021 at home.
He was born Sept. 9, 1951 in Rogers City to Edward and Rose (Lijewski) Hincka.
Ken was born a farmer, raised in Posen. He attended St. Casimir School then graduated from Posen High School in 1969, where he played football. He worked for the railroad briefly, then moved down state to do road construction with the State of Michigan. He surveyed, inspected, and supervised various road crews throughout his 31 years of service. In retirement, he enjoyed wood splitting, ‘playing in the wood pile’, and tree trimming as a hardworking Polack. He’s with “the boys” now; hunting, fishing, drinking beers, riding in fast cars and chasing girls.
