It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of George “Alex” Kinsey of Penticton on the 26th of July, 2012. Alex is survived by his loving wife Marilyn, his children Charlene (Jim) Watchel of Kamloops and Ian (Kelsey Batts) Kinsey of Princeton, his grandchildren Rachael and Carlee Watchel, his brothers Jack, Bob, and Bill Kinsey, as well as his sisters Bettey Rosenke and Sylvia Fairbrother. He also leaves to cherish his memory 4 nieces and 7 nephews. Alex is predeceased by his parents, Myrtle and Arthur Kinsey.

Alex enjoyed fishing, fly tying, ATV riding, hunting and had a general love for the outdoors and wildlife. He had a 27 year career in mining at Brenda Mines in Peachland and Similco Mines in Princeton. He volunteered coaching minor hockey and refereeing ringette in Princeton. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He never complained and was the most easy going individual anyone ever knew.

A Celebration of Life for Alex Kinsey will be held at a later date.
