Charles Edward Hine, loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, passed away at age 88 on March 28, 2018 at his home in Zionsville.  Throughout Chuck’s life, his greatest joy was to spend time with his kids.  He was the only child of Bernice and Crystal Hine, born December 16, 1929 in Lebanon, Indiana.

Chuck was a 1947 graduate of Arsenal Technical High School.  Following high school, he went to Butler University to become a pharmacist, graduating in 1951.  In 1953 he moved his young family to Whitestown, Indiana buying Laughner’s Pharmacy where they stayed until moving Hine Pharmacy to Zionsville in 1964.

Chuck was a member of Zionsville United Methodist Church.  When he sold his pharmacy in 1982 and retired, his love of photography led him to buy a postcard business, Indiana Scenic Images, which he worked for another 19 years.
