Even though Jeff and I were first cousins we didn't really know each other. I grew up at the same time as his brother, Curt. After Uncle Bum died and Aunt Freida got married again she moved out of town with Jeff and Rae Ann, who were little then. By reading comments from people I can see that he was well liked. I offer my sympathy and condolences to his sister, Rae Ann, and to his family. God Bless All. Love ya Cuz …

To the family of Jeffery Kinch. I'm Very Sorry for your loss. I remember visiting with Jeff at United Helpers River Ledge Nursing Home when my mom was there at River Ledge. She passed away June 8th 2016. Jeff would always come into my mom's room and say Hi. I knew Jeff when I was a Volunteer Firefighter with Hermon Fire Dept. Jeff was a great guy. He will always be missed. Even though he is not here, He lives on in your heart just like my mom lives on in mine. Rest In Peace Jeff.

I remember my mom (Jane Fuller) taking my younger brother and I with her to visit with his mom, Frieda and deliver AVON. Jeff was also so thoughtful and very kind. If I recall correctly, he would also take us kids out to see the animals. Such a lovely family! Thinking of the family and sending our love and prayers.
