William Albert McKinstry

William Albert McKinstry, 78, of Lancaster, Virginia, passed away May 16, 2017 at Rappahannock General Hospital in Kilmarnock, Virginia. William was born to William and Sallie McKinstry in Washington, D.C. on February 11, 1939. William was passionate about fishing, loved to hunt when he was much younger, and always appreciated the beauty of old, vintage Ford trucks. He was known for his ability to do just about anything with a pair of scissors, including cutting a penny in half. William worked as a lineman for C & P Telephone Company most of his life, and if the family got separated during trips, would not think twice about shimmying up a pole in order to make a phone call and round everyone back up – all from a couple of stories up. Preceding William in death are his parents, William Alexander McKinstry, Jr. and Sallie Harrison McKinstry (Holder). Surviving him are his wife of 52 years, Janet McKinstry; his son, William Alexander McKinstry, III and his wife, Michelle; his daughter, Marjorie Leigh McKinstry-Miller and her husband, Mark; his sister, Mary M. “Cookie” Minno and her 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 has been arranged for William on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at 10:30 AM at Midland Cemetery on Catlett Road in Midland, Virginia.
