About Gary Hines

Gary HinesGary Hines was born in Holly Ridge and grew up there before graduating from Dixon High School.

After high school he attended North Carolina State University to study architecture. He then transferred to Campbell University and received his undergraduate degree.

He felt a pull toward the ministry and went to Southern Baptist Seminary, eventually obtaining a master’s degree in divinity from Duke University. Hines was not a big sports fan but always watched the Blue Devils basketball team.

He was ordained and worked in rural Kentucky churches. He married and later divorced, but they had one son who was the light of his life. He eventually left the ministry and got another master’s degree in counseling from Indiana University and worked in the mental health field. He ended his career doing investigations of potential abuse or neglect in nursing homes.

In 1997, Hines married Jayne, who he was married to for 22 years before he died suddenly in 2019.

Hines traveled all over the world, learning about history and other cultures, and making friends everywhere he went. Hines never lost his love of learning and when he retired, he took classes every day at the local colleges and university. He actively volunteered and was committed to weeding out human trafficking.
