Kingsley grew up and lived in Milwaukee, WI and Brookfield, WI until 1985 when he moved to Colorado. In his younger years Kingsley enjoyed flying and was very proud of the time when he was flying and observed a vehicle go through the ice on Lake Winnebago. He radioed for help and was recognized as a hero for saving the lives of the occupants.
Kingsley had a passion for making clocks and for knitting afghans which he often gave away as gifts. Kingsley had a special place in his heart for the 5:00AM workout crew at the Trails Recreation Center and he loved being the first one through the door each morning.
A Celebration of Life honoring Kingsley is being planned and details will be shared upon completion of the arrangements.
If you ever visit Georgetown, CO and the Guanella Pass to enjoy the beautiful scenery, look up to the sky and Kingsley will undoubtedly be smiling as these are two of his favorite places.
Kingsley’s family would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Chip Southern and Scott Goodwin. The friendship and care you both have given to Kingsley over the years but especially during the last days of Kingsley’s life is truly appreciated
