It is with great shock and sadness we report the passing of Tony Hinton, forever known to Maryland geocachers as the legendary wizardofmd69. Tony was one of the most colorful characters in the game with a big heart and a generous spirit. Geocaching was a major part of his life, and his presence here in the Maryland geocaching scene will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. Our hearts go out to his friends and family – especially his wife, Suzanne – in this time of grief. We have created this thread for the sharing of thoughts and memories of Wizard.
