Frank J. Kinler, Jr. Passed away at the age of 71 on Friday May 3, 2024, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on May 9, 1952.

Preceded in death by his parents Frank J Kinler, Sr and Agnus Schleber and his only son Steven Micheal Kinler.

Frank, or as many new him as Tuddy had the biggest heart and was so full of love. He always said that his greatest accomplishment in life was his family. He was fearless yet sensitive, incredibly compassionate, generous, loyal, brave, strong, witty and always made everyone around him smile. He had very strong values and did everything with honesty and integrity.

Frank (Tuddy) could fix or build just about anything his hands touched. His hobbies were cooking, camping, fishing, going to the beach, playing darts and pool, gardening and listening to music.

We are deeply heartbroken by his passing but for those who knew him knew he never wanted anyone to mourn his death but to celebrate his life.

There will be a celebration of life held for Frank J. Kinler Jr. On Friday, May 31, 2024, at 11:00 am located @ 7301 W. St. Bernard Hwy, Arabi La 70032.
