Born on June 24, 1951 in Jersey Shore and raised in Lock Haven, he was the son of the late James F. Kinley, Sr. and Dorothy Walker Kinley.
Jimmy was a kind hearted man who would give you the shirt off of his back and not think twice about it. On July 14th, 2006 he married Relda Killinger, who preceded him in death on January 23, 2019.
Jimmy is survived by a sister, Jeannie “Sis” (Kenneth) McGhee of Mill Hall; a brother from another mother, Robert Vonada (Bonnie) of Blanchard; and sister-in-laws, Ethel Kinley of Farrandsville and Sharon Kinley of Mill Hall. Jimmy was blessed to have a second mother in his life, Ann Aungst of Pine Creek. On March 11, 2018, Jimmy and Relda’s family grew by one. They had a beautiful little girl enter their life and he loved her with all of his heart. She will always have a special angel watching over her on her journey in life. Jimmy also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews who he loved and would always be willing to help. He will also be missed by his faithful furry companion, Abbie.
