Grand Rapids soldier killed in Hawaii returned home

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The body of a Grand Rapids soldier has returned home.

Sgt. Terrence Hinton was killed earlier this month in Hawaii in a training exercise. The truck he was in spun out of control, hit a guardrail, and rolled over.

Hinton joined the army in 2009 and had been deployed to Afghanistan and Kuwait.

Dozens of Patriot Guard riders escorted Hinton’s body from Gerald R. Ford Airport Tuesday afternoon to the funeral home.

Visitation for Sgt. Hinton will be held Wednesday at the Ivy K. Gillespie Memorial Chapel in Grand rapids from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

A second visitation will be held Thursday morning, followed by a funeral service at the memorial chapel at 11 a.m. Interment will take place at Fort Custer National Cemetery.
