Jeffrey Lee Kinnamon Obituary
Kinnamon, Jeffrey Lee,

Jeffrey Lee Kinnamon, 60, entered eternal peace on September 13, 2017 after a courageous struggle with cancer.

Jeff was born in Louisville, KY on December 22, 1956 to Carole and John Kinnamon. He resided in southern Indiana for the last 25 years of his life.

Jeff is preceded in death by his infant daughter, Jessica Lyn Kinnamon, his mother, Carole M. Kinnamon and his little sister, Ruth Ann Kinnamon.

He is survived by a son, Clayton Lee Kinnamon, his loving father, John F. Kinnamon, his older brother and childhood partner-in-mischief, Mark S. Kinnamon, his devoted sister and loyal brother-in-law, Lisa M. and I. Glenn Todd III, and two nieces and one nephew.

Jeff graduated from the University of Louisville with a Bachelor of Science degree in Commerce. After graduation, he worked for the Federal Bureau of Prisons before transferring to the United States Postal Service from which he retired after 30 years of service.

In Jeff's twenties, he was an enthusiastic body builder and won the competition of Mr. U of L in 1978. He was an athlete and an outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting. He was known as a very quiet, private man who was fiercely independent. A gentle soul, he dearly loved his pets and was very attached to them.

Jeff was, and continues to be, deeply loved and admired by his family.

A private celebration in honor of Jeff's life was held at Resthaven Memorial Park where he was buried.

Expressions of sympathy accepted as donations to the or to the Kentucky Humane Society.
