Martin Kinsey, 58, of Haddon Twp., a former college teacher


Age 58, of Haddon Township, died unexpectedly February 1st, at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia.
A former college teacher with a wide range of intellectual interests, Kinsey struggled most of his adult life with residual effects of a benign brain tumor and its surgical and radiation treatment in 1978.
Born in Princeton, NJ, on May 14, 1949, he was a son of Richard Saltonstall Kinsey, also of Haddon Township, and the late Janet Townsend Roberts (Kinsey). He is also survived by his brother David North Kinsey of Princeton, two nephews, and eight first cousins.
Kinsey was raised in Moorestown and graduated from Moorestown Senior High School. He was co-captain of its state championship swim team and played violin in the New Jersey All-State Orchestra. A cum laude graduate of Dartmouth College in 1971, Kinsey attended graduate school in Russian studies at Yale University. After receiving a Master of Science in Education degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1980, Kinsey taught English as a second language at Camden County Community College and the Community College of Philadelphia.
Kinsey was unable to work for many years, but he was a gregarious member of his community. At the First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia, Kinsey delivered from the pulpit a 'bicentennial minute' during its 1996-1997 celebration of its history. He organized and led a Foreign Policy Association 'Great Decisions' discussion group in Westmont for five years, where he lived for more than 20 years.
Contributions in memory of Martin T. Kinsey '71 may be made to Dartmouth College, 6066 Development Office, Hanover, NH 03755-3555, for a fund his family is endowing.
Family and friends are invited to attend and participate in his service of remembrance, on Saturday, March 29, 2008, at 11 am, at the Moorestown Friends Meetinghouse (Quakers), 118 East Main Street, Moorestown, NJ.
