Joseph William Kingsley

Joseph William Kingsley passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 2, 2024. His loving wife of 67 years, Evelyn, and great-grandson Dominic preceded him in death.

Joseph is survived by his daughters, Marla Easterling (Jim) of Franklin, Tennessee, Annie Naylor (Scott Paine) of Panama City, Florida and Lori Brown of Alta Vista, Virginia; his son, Richard (Lori) of Casselberry, Florida; four grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Joseph joined the Air Force after high school which brought him to Orlando where he met and married Evelyn. He rose to the rank of Master Sargeant and was responsible as the Aircraft Maintenance Superintendent primarily for B-52s in the Strategic Air Command. He had numerous overseas assignments, and his family was able to follow him to a number of Air Force locations in the USA and Madrid, Spain. He served honorably over 20 years and then made the family’s home in Casselberry, Florida. He made a second career as the Finance Manager at local car dealerships. Joseph was well known for working hard to provide for his family and was respected and loved by all who knew him. He enjoyed bowling in leagues with Evelyn across Seminole County, loved fishing with Richard, treasured time spent with family and loved the dogs.

The family extends their heartfelt thanks to the wonderfully caring and professional staff at Life Care of Altamonte Springs, particularly Dr. Eduardo Diaz. Joseph was surrounded with God’s mercies as he transitioned to his home in heaven. He will be missed by his family and friends, and will be honored at a Private family burial in Highland Memory Gardens, Apopka, FL.
