Vigil Service & Rosary, Remembrances for Warren Hinckle August 29, 2016

Aug 30. Family and friends of Warren Hinckle gathered at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in San Francisco, for a vigil service followed by a recitation of the rosary, with music and singing interspersed, following which were remembrances by the Honorable Quentin L. Kopp, several longtime friends, and lastly gratitude expressed by members of the Hinckle family.  Many exceptional stories were shared!  The formal funeral service will be held Tuesday August 30th at 10:30 A.M. at SS Peter & Paul.  The public is invited.

     Warren Hinckle will always be remembered for publishing Ramparts magazine, which began as an essentially Catholic anti-war publication, and expanded to critique much of global politics, always championing for peace and justice.  This was a serious literary endeavor, originally responding to the insanity of war, particularly the Viet Nam war in the 1960s, and reported ongoing peace and justice campaigns.  Warren Hinckle fought the good fight.  His family tonight asked us to continue fighting the good fight for him, and for us.
