WEHOville - Mother Lode hosted a memorial Tuesday night in honor of Kinsley, who died recently of what is said to have been a heart attack.

Kinsley, 47, celebrated his birthday on Jan. 7. He is survived by his sisters Phoebe, Dawn, Maggie and Kim Lee. He lived in Los Angeles and grew up in Victorville where he attended Victor Valley High.

Kinsley worked at Mother Lode for about 17 years where he was known for his affectionate greeting of the regulars, which sometimes included a hug or brief kiss.
