  • Notes  Died:
    • Words cannot begin to describe the overwhelming grief, sadness, devastation, and shock that has overcome my family. On Friday, we suffered the sudden, unexpected loss of my Dad who died in a tragic accident at the ranch that he so dearly loved. This profound loss has shaken my family to our core and left a huge hole in our hearts. My dad was always like superman in my eyes. I thought he was invincible. He was my Hero, my horseback riding buddy, my confidant, a master joke and storyteller, my partner in crime, my teacher, my rock, and my dearest friend. My Dad taught me to live life to its fullest and always lead by example. He was the bravest, toughest man I know... with the softest, biggest heart for the people he loved. His smile and his laugh were contagious. He lived life on his terms and was always unapologetically true to himself.
      Several years back when he retired, my dad had business cards made up which listed his profession as "philosopher and ranch hand"... which described him perfectly at his core.
      Daddy, I will miss you more than words can say. My world and my heart will never be the same without you.
      -- Lauren Kingery Tempel, 12 Jul 2015

    • William "Bill" Ward Kingery Jr., 69, passed away on Friday, July 10, 2015. On that day, heaven gained an amazing man.

      Bill was a true original. He was a wise soul who always remained young at heart. He had an appetite for life that was inspirational and lived life to its fullest. Even more than that, he had a love for his family that was truly inspiring. He also had a powerful love of his country and was a true patriot.

      Bill Kingery was born on December 14, 1945 in Detroit, Michigan to Lee Kingery Clark and the late Col. William Ward Kingery. He graduated from Warner Robins High School in 1968. He received a Bachelors in Business Administration from Georgia Southern University and an M.B.A. from Georgia State University. Bill moved to Colorado with his family in 1977 where he quickly embraced the majestic beauty of the outdoor wilderness. He enjoyed golfing, camping, skiing, horseback riding and many other adventures. Bill worked as a business executive until the time of his retirement. He was the President and CEO of Daniels Cable until 1988. He also worked as the President and CEO of Wireless Broadcasting Systems of America until 1999. When Bill retired, he embraced a life of raising horses and cattle at his ranch in Castle Rock, Three Oaks Ranch. He even went as far as to have business cards printed which listed his job title as "Philosopher and Ranch Hand"... a job title that suited him perfectly. Bill recognized the amazing healing power of horses and was a driving force behind the foundation of the Kingery Equine Therapy Program at the Excelsior Youth Center. Bill also volunteered with the Douglas County Mounted Patrol and was an avid Colorado State University Ram fan.

      Bill's legacy will live on in the many family and friends that he left behind. His memory will be forever treasured by his beloved wife of 45 years, Carol Kingery; his daughter, Dr. Lauren Kingery Tempel (Michael); his granddaughters, Morgan and Mackenzie Tempel; his mother, Lee Kingery Clark; his brother, John Kingery (Beth); his sisters Karen Senden and Bonnie Scott (Brian) and his many nephews, nieces, and dear friends. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully suggests memorial donations be made to T.A.P.S. (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) which supports the families of fallen soldiers in William's name.
