Jonathan and Timothy Kinsley Pass Away

January 25, 2023

On behalf of the board, staff, volunteers and Friends members of the Gettysburg Foundation, we express sincere condolences to the Kinsley family for their sudden loss. Many thoughts and prayers are with the Kinsley family at this difficult time.

Jonathan Kinsley, an executive of Kinsley Enterprises, and Timothy Kinsley, president of Kinsley Properties, are sons of the late Robert “Bob” Kinsley and his wife, Anne Kinsley. Bob was the Gettysburg Foundation’s founding Chairman and later Chairman Emeritus.

Barbara Finfrock, Gettysburg Foundation Board Co-chair said, “For many of us, the news that Jon and Tim Kinsley were killed in a heli-skiing avalanche on Monday, Jan. 23, 2023, is as hard to accept as if they were our own personal family members. Sons of Bob and Anne Kinsley, to whom we are indebted for years of friendship and service and with whom we have shared an association since the early 1990s, Jon and Tim, were pursuing a sport they had enjoyed with all their brothers and Bob for years. To Anne and the entire Kinsley family, we send our sympathy and grieve your loss.”
