Mark Kinsley, 57, of Linn, Wisconsin died on Friday August 4th, 2017 at his home.

Born Mark Alexander Patrick Kinsley to John and Victoria Diane (McPhail) Kinsley in Toronto, Canada on February 17th, 1960.  Mark was a proud member of the Linn Township Fire Department where he served for 10 years.  Prior to being on the fire department he was a member of the Linn Fire Auxiliary for 2 years.  Mark not only had a passion for the fire service but he also had a passion for swimming, kayaking, he loved to play video games and build model rockets.  Mark was proud of his Canadian heritage. Out of all the things Mark loved to do he had no greater passion then for his son, Alex, and his family and friends.

Mark is survived by his son, Alex, his father John, his brother Scott (Kathy) Kinsley of Elgin, Illinois, and his sister Heather Kinsley of Evanston, Ill. Many, many, many friends, whom he considered his extended family, all survive Mark. His mother, Victoria Diane (McPhail) Kinsley, preceded Mark in death on January 3rd, 1992.
