Honoring Those Who Served

Gene Kinney

With heavy hearts, we announce the death of Gene Kinney of Little Rock, Arkansas, who passed away on October 30, 2021 at the age of 88. He was a wonderful paster, an airforce veteran who carried his duties to the end. Event in retirement he continued to assist where needed. He was a true American, exemplifying everything you would expect from a patriot and a pastor. We are greatly sad of our loss but know that he is with his heavenly father. Memorial contributions may be made to Lutheran Military Veterans and Families Ministries, Inc. (260) 755-2239, http://www.lmvfm.org.
