Hintz, Burke, was born on November 6, 1918 in Oelwein, Iowa. He passed away peacefully on December 16, 2007. Raised in Oelwein, he went to college at the University of Iowa (He was a life long Hawkeye's fan). At the university he met Mary Ellen Roseland and married her on January 23, 1942. Soon after they moved to the Roseland farm in Dunbar. In 1952, Burke and Mary Ellen moved their family to California. On New Year's Eve 1955, with 5 kids and one on the way, they moved into their new home in Fullerton. They lived in that same house for 52 years. He leaves a loving and devoted wife, Mary Ellen. He also leaves behind two sons, one daughter, and their families, Carl Hintz, Alan and Pam Hintz, and Les and Gretchen Christie; six grandchildren, Dale (Amy), Brent (Nicole), Allison, David, Jeff and Katie; one great-grandson, Benjamin. He will also be missed by his sister, Georgene; his brother, Dan, and numerous nieces and nephews. Burke enjoyed playing golf well into his 80's. Family members and friends have fond memories, playing cards, boating and camping at Bass Lake and Lake Nacimiento. Who could forget his stories of summers on the Mississippi River as a child, working at the family business, life on the farm, and the beloved road trips to Iowa. He and Mary Ellen were members of Eastside Christian Church and previously Morningside Presbyterian Church, both in Fullerton, Ca. They often enjoyed opening their home to friends and out of town guests. Burke enjoyed hearing the reading of the Christmas Story found in Luke chapter two just before Christmas dinner. Burke is now with his parents, Albert and Hazel; his brothers, Marc and Owen; his daughter, Christine and his sons, Owen and Michael.
