Alonzo Arza Hinckley (April 23, 1870 – December 22, 1936) was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1934 until his death.

Hinckley was born in Cove Fort, Utah Territory to Ira Nathaniel Hinckley and Angeline Wilcox Noble. He married his wife Rose May Robison in 1892 in the Manti Utah Temple. Hinckley served as a missionary in the Netherlands.[1]

On Sunday, August 11, 1912, during a conference in Millard County, Utah, Hinckley was selected to be president of Deseret Stake, a newly formed stake located in the western half of Millard County and formed from a portion of the Millard Stake.[2]

He was ordained an apostle on October 11, 1934 after the death of Anthony W. Ivins.

Hinckley died of stomach cancer on December 22, 1936 in Salt Lake City.[3] He was buried at Salt Lake City Cemetery. He was succeeded in the Quorum of the Twelve by Albert E. Bowen.

Hinckley was the uncle of former LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley.
