Tiny Township councillor Richard Hinton died suddenly on Saturday morning.

He was 53.

Mayor George Cornell said he’s gotten to know Hinton over the last number of years and called him a “fine gentleman,” and said his death is a real loss for the community.

“He will be greatly missed,” Cornell said.

Hinton and his family re-opened the Cawaja Pines General Store in 2014. He is survived by his wife and two children.
