Bob"Bullet" Hinnen

From the arms of his beloved wife Sue to the arms of the angels, Bob passed peacefully on September 18, 2021. Born to William and Betty Hinnen, Bob grew up in Kenosha, Wisconsin. He received his undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  A proud Vietnam veteran, he was stationed at Fort Dix and Fort Polk fo advanced infantry training prior to Fort Benning where he undertook OCS instruction and deployment. Returning to the states in 1970, he went back to school, attending the University of Wisconsin,Lacrosse where he earned his masters degree in Student Personal Services. 


With his charismatic personalty and strong business acumen, his beloved Colorado became his oyster, affording him numerous opportunities in sales and marketing. With a passion for publishing, he started  "Homes Illustrated Magazine", which served the entire Front Range with an upscale real estate publication from1986 to1996.  Working in partnership with his wife Sue, "Colorado Springs Style", a full color, lifestyle magazine likewise became a reality in 1996. 


Above all, Bob loved the outdoors and all that Colorado had to offer. He was a gifted hunter, fisherman and camping enthusiast, with elk, geese, deer and ducks always on the menu. He also enjoyed a pool league and sponsored and played on a softball team for many years. Being the outgoing person that he was, Bob was happiest when surrounded by a cadre of friends and family. Constantly smiling, he took advantage of every moment, celebrating life and those around him to the fullest. 


Bob is survived by his wife, Sue (Woodland Park, CO) and a brother,James Hinnen in Madison, Wisconsin.

Our Condolences to the Hinnen family. 

Bob was such a great guy and friend to everyone he was in contact with. Very popular guy at Kenosha High. Teri Lea and I had looked up Bob while we live in Colorado around 2012 and were blessed to have an opportunity to see him at his home in the mountains.  It was a surprise visit. At first you don't recogniize a person after a few years but once I looked at him I knew we were at the right house. Just chatted a while, which I enjoyed, remembering things from the past and what we have been doing for so many years. Such a charismatic guy. R.I.P. friend.
