He was one of five children and loved to talk about the good ‘ole days growing up in Millcreek with his large extended family.\r\n\r\nCon spent his young adulthood going to school, hanging with buddies, and skiing the Utah snow as much as he could. He was on the Brighton ski patrol for many years before finally settling on his career as a firefighter. He spent 32 years working for Salt Lake County, 30 of those years as a firefighter, and ultimately a Captain. It was a job he loved and never complained about. It was also a job his family was always proud to tell others about. Due to the unusual schedule of a firefighter, he also held a part time job driving a school bus. He loved that job as well and had endless stories of school bus antics and his “favorite” kids along the routes. He was the perfect guy for driving a bus because he knew every single street name in the Salt Lake Valley by heart and could talk you through how to get anywhere in Utah without looking at a map. He retired from both jobs in 1999 at the age of 55.\r\n\r\nCon married his sweetheart and best friend, Kathy Killam, February 12th, 1971. They moved to South Jordan in 1977 where they built their home, and raised three children together. They planted their roots on Y Worry Lane and they loved their home and neighbors so much, they never left.\r\n\r\nAfter his retirement, Con had two knee replacements that changed the course of the next 20 years. He was unable to do much physically and struggled with chronic pain. He still managed to make us all laugh on his good days, and never failed to remind us how much he loved us on his worst days. We miss him terribly, but are comforted to know he can watch over his family now without pain. \r\n\r\nCon is survived by his wife Kathy, his three children, Kurt Hintze, Anji (Tyson) DowDell, and Mark (Sunny) Hintze, eight grandchildren, McKay, Makenna, Kate, Brooklyn and Cooper DowDell, and Trinitee, Koen and Kendra Hintze. He is survived by three sisters, Tavalee Bishop, Michelle Thompson and Tina Smith and one brother, Clint Hintze who he shared a birthday, as well as many brother and sister in laws, aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents. \r\n\r\nPublic viewing will be held on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Jenkins-Soffe South Valley, 1007 W. South Jordan Parkway, (10600 So.)
