Roy 'Jack' Kinsey

Roy "Jack" Kinsey, 80, died April 7, 2010, at his home in Anchorage.

A funeral will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 11701 Puma St.

Jack Kinsey was born Sept. 6, 1929, in Tampa, Fla. At an early age, he moved with his family to West Palm Beach, Fla.

He was a meticulous finish carpenter by trade.

His work and love of adventure brought him to Alaska in the late 1950s. He finally moved his loving wife, Jackie, and three children to Alaska in 1960. Jack and Jacqueline Hand married at an early age and were lifelong partners.

He was an avid sportsman and loved hunting, fishing and camping. He was kind, compassionate and caring and never at a loss for words. He loved spending quality time with his three children and devoted wife.

He was preceded in death by his son, Roy "Buzz" Kinsey, who lived in Anchorage.

Jack is survived by his wife of 62 years, Jackie; his children, Sharon Thompson of Orlando, Fla., and William "Bill" Kinsey of West Palm Beach; four granddaughters, Tanya Hamilton of Chicago, Jackie Mouser of Soldotna, Melani Turner of The Colony, Texas, and Misty Diemer of Palmer; and several great-grandchildren. He is also survived by a sister, Lois Holland of Leavenworth, Wash.; and many nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Diabetes Association.

Arrangements are with Legacy Funeral Homes, Kehl's Chapel.
