David D. Hintz, 58, of Omaha, died Sunday, March 8, 2020 at the Nebraska Med Center in Omaha after a courageous fight.

Services will be held at 10:30 a.m., Friday, March 13 at Faith Lutheran Church in Stanton with the Rev. Tim Booth officiating. Burial will take place at Prospect Hill Cemetery in Norfolk. Visitation will be held from 3 - 7 p.m., Thursday, also at the church. 

Stonacek Funeral Chapel in Norfolk is in charge of the arrangements.

David "Dave" Hintz, son of Dwane and Phyllis (Klutman) Hintz, was born Dec. 21, 1961 in Osmond. He was baptized Jan. 28, 1962 at Zion Lutheran Church in Plainview and confirmed in 1976 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hartington. Dave started school in Winside until the family moved to Hartington, where he attended school through his junior year at Hartington Public School. The family moved to Stanton where he graduated from Stanton High School in May of 1980.

In his early years, Dave was employed at Double K Restaurant in Norfolk. Dave then spent 20 years at Great Dane Trailers in Wayne until 2012. On March 12, 2013, Dave received a second chance at life and received a heart transplant in Omaha. He was recipient #123. Most recently he was employed at Omaha Steaks until the time of his death. Dave enjoyed spending time with his family and especially his grandchildren. He was an avid Husker fan. If Dave wasn’t working, you could have found him relaxing outside. All that knew Dave, will remember his goofy sense of humor. He had recently signed paperwork for a second heart transplant. Dave was married to Jane (Dewey) from 1989-2009.

Survivors include his daughters, Hailey (Nick) Jessen of Valley and Leslie (Tanner) Bartscher of Hartford, S.D.; two grandchildren Hadley Jessen and Cameron Bartscher, his mother, Phyllis Hintz of Stanton; two sisters, Darla Hintz of Norfolk and Donna (Clay) Wright of Norfolk; numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. 

He was preceded in death by his father, Dwane Hintz, and his grandparents.

Dave’s wish was to share his gift of life and he was able to donate tissue.

Pallbearers will be Tanner Bartscher, Nick Jessen, Rob Olberding, Evan Lamson, Gavin Trimble, Jeff Wheatley, Jeremy Barg and Gary Whitman. 

Honorary pallbearers will be members of the Stanton High School Class of 1980.
