Samuel Joseph
Samuel Joseph "Joey" Kinser, Jr., age 57 of the Clearfork Community of Tazewell, VA went peacefully to be with his Lord on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 while surrounded by family at Lewis Gale Medical Center after a courageous battle with cancer.
Born June 24, 1962 in Bluefield, WV, he was a son of Agnes Lorraine Kinser of Clearfork and the late Samuel Joseph Kinser. Joey was a lifelong resident of the Tazewell community and a apart of the 1980 graduating class of Tazewell High School. Joey worked alongside his brothers managing their late fathers' construction company S.J. Kinser Co. where he served as president and worked much of his life. Joey not only enjoyed construction but found great passion as a volunteer firefighter at Clearfork Volunteer Fire Department where he would later become Assistant Chief. Joey had many hobbies, which included rebuilding cars and riding motorcycles.

In addition to his mother, he is survived by his adoring wife of 34 years, Fonda Kinser; his amazing children Samuel "Sammy" Kinser and Jennifer Kinser; brothers, David Kinser (Michelle), Richard Kinser (Tracie), and Steve Kinser; one sister, Susan Childress (Jim) all of Tazewell, VA.
