Obituary of Kerry Curtis Kinslow
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kerry Kinslow. Born in Isle Aux Morts NL August 17th 1969 (the place he always called home), he passed away October 28th, 2023 in the Halifax Infirmary, QEII. Kerry lived in Terence Bay, NS with his loving wife of six years (together 28 years). Kerry was predeceased by his loving mother, Eva Kinslow (of Isle Aux Morts, NL). Kerry is survived by his wife, Sally Slaunwhite; sisters, Rose Kaye (George deceased), Linda Herritt (Arthur), Mary Joyce (Ira), Eva Power (Brendon), Ethel Joyce (Woodrow), Sheila Keeping (Boyd), June Hatcher (Thomas), Amanda Dominie (Paul); brothers, Chester (Annie), Norman (Paulette), and Joey; several nieces and nephews and special great-nephew, Jaxsen, whom Kerry thought the world of. He came to Nova Scotia when he was young and worked at Cousins restaurant and eventually ended up at The Red Fox Tavern where he met great friends…. long-time friends, Bobby and Robert to name a couple. He thought of the staff as family. Kerry became the cook of his own take out for three years. He was well-known for his fish and chips and chicken wings in Terence Bay. Kerry then worked at A&W for the last 20 years. He did nothing but complain most of the time, but he loved them all. His manager Lisa was like family to him along with some of the workers. Kerry liked to party in his younger years and loved his heavy metal but at the same time you would also hear the Newfoundland music blaring, especially if he was having a drink. Kerry was an animal lover and loved his cats dearly. He looked after their daily needs without complaint. Ellie and Charlie will miss him and his beloved Miley that we lost at Easter was always on his mind. Kerry was not an easy person to get to know but when you did, look out. He tormented those that he truly liked, and we all knew there was a very big heart underneath that exterior. His family was a bit scattered, and Kerry wasn’t one to pick up the phone however he loved them all. Cremation has taken place under the direction of T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, Halifax. There will be no service as per his wishes. His ashes will be laid to rest at a later date in Isle Aux Morts. A gathering of Remembrance will be held at his home in Terence Bay (1247 Terence Bay Road), on Sunday, November 12th, from 2-4 p.m. Donations may be made to any animal rescue.
