Kinsey, as he was known, was born November 5, 1971 in Sanford, Florida the son of William R. Kinsey and Betty R. (Talley) Kinsey. During his career in the military he earned several degrees, later in life earning his Doctorate in Aeronautical Engineering.  

He and the former Susan E. Hegarty were united in marriage on December 10, 2016.  

Kinsey served in the United States Navy as a submariner from November 7, 1990 to July 14, 1999. He loved what he did in the military and was very proud of his service to his country.  After exiting the service, he built, owned and operated KTSI, an engineering firm providing services to our nation’s Defense Department.

He truly loved his children and the time he was able to spend with them.  There was no hobby that he would not try; and if he decided to try something there was no doubt he would soon master that.  

Left to cherish his memory include his wife, Susan Kinsey, Atchison, KS; two sons, William Marshall Kinsey, Greenville, SC, Sean Fisher Kinsey, Sarasota, FL; his mother, Betty R. Miller; a brother, Johnny Waycaster; sisters, Joan Clute and Rita Arnold.
