Bradley Scott Kinsey
Bradley Scott Kinsey was born in Glendive on May 9, 1981. He passed away on June 4, 2017, in Missoula.
Brad was the son of Michelle (Dufner) Kinsey and the late Tim Kinsey and an older brother to Jason.
Brad grew up in Glendive, enjoying fishing and hunting with his dad. He also spent many hours agate hunting on the Yellowstone River with his mom and extended family. He was a 1999 graduate of DCHS and attended the University of Montana. He achieved a journeyman’s pipefitters license while working for Fire Protection Services.
Brad was a gifted artist and with great pleasure and pride gave his sketches to those closest to him.
He married Danelle Torell in 2010. Immediately he became a step-father to son Roeper and later welcomed daughter Aurora into the family. Being a father brought him tremendous joy and these were some of the happiest times in his life. He and Danelle later separated.
Brad is preceded in death by his father, Tim Kinsey; and his grandfathers, Leroy Dufner and Howard Kinsey.
He is survived by his children, Roeper, Aurora and Jazen; his brother, Jason (LesLee) Kinsey; and nephews, Beckham, Breyer and Baize of Wibaux; his mother, Michelle (Dufner) Kinsey and Randy Wilke of Helena; grandmothers, Ann Dufner and Joyce Kinsey of Glendive; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews of the Kinsey, Dufner and Reynolds families.
