Dr Tinker was a part of my life for 33 years. He was a wonderful kind man who always made time for his patients. I followed him from the Philadelphia Navy Yard to Collingswood and then Voorhees. We could talk about anything under the sun but his favorite topic was his family. I wish I could be there tomorrow. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

It was my please to call on Dr Tinker’s office as a pharmaceutical representative and his wife, son and the doctor were always so welcoming and nice no matter how busy they were. My sympathy to the family and I’m sure you are at peace that Dr Tinker is in a better place.

Dr. Tinker was a very special man whom the Conte family loved dearly. He took care of each one of us like no other doctor has ever done. We thought of him and his family often. We know my Dad, Mike Conte will be greeting him in heaven, ready to shoot the breeze. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this difficult time. We would love to hear from the family as the addresses we have are not up to date.

My deepest condolences to the family. Dr. and Mrs. Tinker were a significant part of my adolescence as I spent many treasured hours in their home with son John. I appreciate all of their kindness and generosity to this day, and think of the family often. Dr. Tinker will be missed. Dave Parker
