Today’s Obituaries: Kinsey, SunRhodes, Henry, Beckwith, Bloomquist, Doney-Redman

img_00321(Lander, Wyo.) – William Michael “Bill” Kinsey, accomplished fly fisher and hunter, meticulous trip planner, dog lover, hard worker, ice cream lover, popcorn-aholic, and beloved husband, dad, Papa, and friend, died Thursday, July 16, 2015. Bill was not one for being formal or somber; he wanted his life to be celebrated with a party rather than a service. To honor his wish, family and friends are invited to the Kinsey house (800 Garner Drive in Lander, Wyoming) on Friday, July 24, 2015. We’ll raise our glasses in his honor on the deck at “beer time” – 5pm on the dot, the way he would have done. Please contact Alicia Kinsey at (202) 297-0779 for more information.
