Obituaries » William Albert McKinstry

William Albert McKinstry, 78, of Lancaster on Virginia’s Northern Neck, passed away May 16, 2017, at Rappahannock General Hospital in Kilmarnock.

He was born Feb. 11, 1939, in Washington, D.C., to the late William Alexander McKinstry Jr. and Sallie Harrison Holder McKinstry.

He was passionate about fishing, loved to hunt when he was much younger, and always appreciated the beauty of old, vintage Ford trucks. Mr. McKinstry was known for his ability to do just about anything with a pair of scissors, including cutting a penny in half. He worked as a lineman for C&P Telephone Co. most of his life, and if the family got separated during trips, would not think twice about shimmying up a pole to make a phone call and round everyone back up — all from a couple of stories above the ground.

Survivors include his wife of 52 years, Janet McKinstry; his son, William Alexander McKinstry III and wife Michelle; his daughter, Marjorie Leigh McKinstry-Miller and husband Mark; his sister, Mary M. “Cookie” Minno and husband Kenny; his grandchildren, Marina Jordan McKinstry, Thomas Jackson Alexander McKinstry and Josephine Olivia McKinstry; and his step-grandchildren, Jonathan Robert Bailey and Matthew Jason Bailey.

A graveside service will take place at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, May 20, at Midland Cemetery on Catlett Road.
