Pack is survived by his wife, Janet, of 50 years, daughter Heather Hindsley, sons Kerry Hindsley (wife Carmen) and Paul Hindsley (wife Juli), and grandchildren Josie Winstead, Sierra Winstead, Ava Hindsley, Landon Hindsley, and Carson Hindsley. Pack was a loved husband, father, brother, and friend to many. Pack was a long time community member of Zion Episcopal Church, where he most recently served on the Vestry.
Pack was born in Fort Lewis, Washington and grew up in Beckley, West Virginia.
He was an accomplished athlete and an avid outdoorsman. Pack played football at his beloved alma mater, Davidson College where he was named to the 1965 All-Southern Conference team and as an AP honorable mention All-American. In 2015, he was inducted into the Davidson College Hall of Fame. After college, Pack attended medical school at the University of Virginia. A Urologist by training, Pack served the people of Beaufort County and its surrounding counties before retiring in 2006. Most recently he enjoyed being an active member of Zion Episcopal Church, spending time with family, hunting with his dogs, and doing other outdoor activities. A man of great faith with a love of different cultures, Pack had the pleasure of traveling to every continent, including multiple mission trips to Haiti and Nicaragua and numerous trips with the Friendship Force. Pack was preceded in death by his beloved, grandson Lee Winstead. Lee likely greeted his Pop Pop at Heaven’s gate doing backflips.
There will be a celebration of his life in May of 2020.
