Hank Rinquest was born on June 10, 1942, to Harry Hankins Rinquest and Cloma Ellowene Jones in Spokane, WA and died on September 12, 2017, in Taylorsville, Utah.
He is survived by his wife, Marie, and their six children: Renee (Jeremy) Taylor, David (Dez) Rinquest, Wendy (Randy) Young, Bob (Debbie) Rinquest, Heidi (Brandon) Clark, and Delbert (Jessie) Rinquest, and 24 grandchildren.

Hank graduated from high school in Fresno, CA in 1960. He served a mission for the LDS Church in Virginia and North Carolina, graduated from BYU with a B.A.in Psycology and an MBA in 1968. He married Elizabeth Marie Williams on June 3, 1965, in the Salt Lake Temple and they enjoyed 52 happy years together. Most of his business career was at ZCMI for almost thirty years where he was a mens clothing buyer. ZCMI was sold and eventually Hank went to work for a medical equipment company in the Salt Lake area. His youngest son, Del, also worked for the same company in Chicago. In 2007 he and Del started their own medical equipment business named Patient's Choice. He loved the challenge of owning his own business and working with his son.
Hank was a faithful member of the LDS Church and served in many positions, including YM President, High Councilman, Stake Mission Presidency, Seventies President, Cubmaster and many others. His favorite calling was Gospel Doctrine teacher. He resided in West Valley City for the past 47 years.

The family expresses sincere thanks to the loving staff of both Aspen Senior Care and Legacy Memory Village. Extra gratitude is expressed to Dr. Timothy Farrell who has helped us for many years.
Hank's children wonder how we can ever pay enough tribute to a father who saved us, who was the rock and safe place that we needed while growing up, who sacrificed and worked so hard to provide for us. We love you Dad and thank you for all you have done for us!
