Funeral Services will be held at 2:00 PM (EDST) on Saturday, May 11, 2024, at Trinity United Methodist Church, Phenix City, AL. Rev. Don Abrams officiating according to Vance Brooks Funeral Home, Phenix City, AL. U. S. Air Force honors will be rendered at the church. A private interment will be in Lakeview Memory Gardens.

Mr. Kinsaul was born April 19, 1949, in Columbus, GA son of the late Glenn Edward Kinsaul and Louise Brown Kinsaul. He was a Vietnam Veteran serving proudly as a Jet Engine Mechanic while in the  U. S. Air Force.  Mr. Kinsaul had retired from Columbus Technical College where he taught Computer Networking. He was an active member of Trinity United Methodist Church where he ran the sound board for many years. He was also a dog lover; his favorites were Sally the beagle and Prissy and Maggie, the beloved basset hounds. No treat was ever denied them. 

Mr. Kinsaul was a man of many talents. He had learned to play the saxophone and later the guitar. Mr. Kinsaul was an avid model train hobbyist with detailed models at his home. He was also an amateur photographer. Later in life, “Grandy” even learned to quilt so he could help “Nans” make beautiful quilts for the family and Veteran’s groups. 

However, he was most proud of his private pilot’s license. He enjoyed taking family and friends on flights and loved to recount many stories of flying different planes, especially for the Delta Skydivers in Houma, Louisiana. 

Mr. Kinsaul was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn and Louise Kinsaul and a brother, Dan Barron.

Survivors include his wife of 42 years, Sandra Christiansen Kinsaul, Phenix City, AL; three children, Kevin Spivey (Elizabeth), Donna Trawick (Steve) and Ashley Melton (Steven); brother, Dr. Robert “Bob” Kinsaul (Sheila); six grandchildren, Garrett and Ethan Spivey, Brittni and  Brandon Trawick, and Ashlyn and Cody Melton; 12 great-grandchildren, Aidan, Annabelle, Lucy, Helena, Eowyn, Eamon, Isaac, Oliver, Brynleigh, Kinsley, Kymber, and Jaxon; numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
