Kinley Earl Hedgpeth

Kinley Earl Hedgpeth, 48, died at his home in Battlefield, Nov. 15, 2018.
Hedgpeth was born Oct. 5, 1970, in Springfield to Larry and Peggy Hedgpeth. He was an identical twin to Kevin Hedgpeth who preceded him in death by 16 years. He graduated from Kickapoo High School in 1989.
Hedgpeth was an avid fisherman often found on area lakes with his friends and uncle Roger. He was also a dedicated Kansas City Chiefs fan and an enthusiastic weather fanatic. He loved good thunderstorms and was invigorated by the possibilities of all winter weather. As a younger man, he loved skiing, golf and just being in nature.
Hedgpeth is preceded in death by his brother, Kevin Hedgpeth, his paternal grandparents, Ivan and Emogene Hedgpeth, his maternal grandmother, Sybil McIlroy and uncles Steve McIlroy and David Hedgpeth.
He is survived by his mother and father, his sister Kim Hedgpeth, his sister-in-law Janet Crews, his grandfather O.D. (Tex) McIlroy and his 14-year-old niece Kylen Crews.
A visitation was at Greenlawn Funeral Home East, 3540 E. Seminole, on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. A memorial service followed immediately at 7 p.m. officiated by his uncle Pastor Roger Hedgpeth. Hedgpeth’s family had fought various types of cancer during the years. Since this was so close to his heart, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society in lieu of flowers.
