Ray, as he was known, was born on March 30, 1939 in Wichita Kansas, the son of Dr. Ralph Raymond Kinsinger Sr. and Francis Coleman Kinsinger. He graduated from Blackwell High School in 1957 where he was active in varsity athletics. While at the University of Oklahoma, Ray was an active member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity and graduated in 1961. He then went on to graduate with honors from the St. Louis University College of Dentistry in 1966. He next completed a residency training program in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in 1969 at the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center. Ray married Patricia Ann Atkinson on August 18, 1961 at Christ the King Parish in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ray and Ann moved with their children to Ponca City on July 1st of 1969 to establish an oral surgery practice, where he cared for patients until the time of his death. His favorite activity was spending time with family and friends, especially his grandchildren. He loved being outdoors and caring for the many horses and other animals on his ranch.

Ray's passion and support for the Oklahoma Sooners and their athletic programs was profound. Ray was extremely active in his community and enjoyed coaching for his children's youth sports teams and raising funds for both civic and charitable causes. He was also very influential on many boards and councils too numerous to name. Some of his most cherished volunteer activities included serving as the President of the Kay County Council for Retarded Children, President of the Ponca City Country Club Board, and most recently as a trustee for the Lew Wentz Foundation at the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Kinsinger had great compassion and concern for his patients, and was very generous with his time and treasure. He touched countless lives and will be deeply missed. His values were evident in the commitments he made to his family, friends and community.

Ray is survived by his loving wife Ann; their four sons, Bill Kinsinger and his wife Janie of Oklahoma City, David Kinsinger and his wife Angela of McKinney, Texas, Tracy Kinsinger and his wife Ashley of Charleston, South Carolina, Tim Kinsinger of Ponca City; his brother, Don Kinsinger of Ponca City; and seven grandchildren, Abbey, Alex, Jacob, Amelia, Joseph, Olivia, and Benjamin.

He was preceded in death by his parents and an infant sister, Suzanne.
