Harold (Harry) Vincent Kinsley
Redondo Beach, CA
Harry Kinsley passed away peacefully at the age of 84 on Thursday October 10, 2019 at his home surrounded by loved ones. His legacy will be remembered through everyone who was lucky enough to meet him.
Harry was born November 27, 1934 in the Bronx, New York to Harold and Sarah Kinsley. He was the middle of three boys. William, Harold and John were three peas in a pod, who loved to play but also loved to fight. He attended St. John’s Catholic School where he met the love of his life Ruth but had not realized it yet. He then joined the Air Force and served all over the United States. When he returned to New York he reconnected with Ruth. Two and one-half years later he borrowed $2.00 from her to pay the city clerk so they could be married on November 28, 1959.
In 1966 they left New York and made their way to Redondo Beach, California where they raised their seven kids and grew old together. He worked as a lithographer to support their growing family. Harry was an avid sportsman, who loved to hunt, fish and camp with family and friends. He kept us all smiling till the end.
