William (Bill) Morgan Kinsman was taken suddenly from his family and friends, at home in Ottawa, Ontario on Wednesday, September 10, 2008 at the age of 60. Beloved son of Ruby (Johns) Kinsman and the late Dr. Glen Kinsman. Dear brother of Robert and his wife Nancy (Bracebridge), Leslie Wall (Honolulu) and Joy Bartlett (Brantford). Special uncle to Corey, Lindsay, Tara and Scott. He will be sadly missed by not only his family, but his many friends and business associates. Bill will be remembered for his passion for politics, history and Hollywood nostalgia. His video store’s thematic window displays were frequently the topic for local news features, and contributed greatly to the eclectic mosaic of Elgin Street. A celebration of his life will be held on Sunday September 21 at McGarry Family Chapel, 315 McLeod Street, Ottawa from 2-5, with a Service of Remembrance at 3 p.m. In Bill’s memory, donations may be directed to the Ottawa Humane Society, St. Vincent’s Hospital – Chronic Care Unit or CHEO (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario).
