Christopher Joseph Kinsella

Christopher Joseph Kinsella died May 3. He was 38. The following was provided by his family.

With an extremely saddened heart, we share with you the news that the Kinsella Clan has lost their beloved youngest son and brother, Christopher Joseph Kinsella. He passed away to pancreatitis in the early morning hours on May 3 in Idaho Falls with his mother and father in attendance.

Christopher was a loving and creative man. He played guitar, built engines, built and flew remote-control airplanes, rode motorcycles and snowmobiles in his free time. He excelled in baseball during his high school years at Jackson Hole High School and he attended University of Alaska in Anchorage. He dedicated six years at Ace Hardware, where he crafted his sales technique.

His smile would light up a room and his laugh was whole-hearted, especially when playing cards. The tenderness he showed to his nieces and nephews was forever endearing. He was a good man.

Dear Heavenly Father, please embrace our Christopher in your arms. Help him to find peace in his heart. Tell him we loved and cherished every minute of his 38 years with us. We hope that you have his beloved Fred-Dog at the gates waiting for him. He really loved that dog.
