Maurice was born in Sudbury, and was the eldest of 8, predeceased by his parents Cecile (Jutras) Kingsley and Simon Kingsley, brothers Dennis, Robert, Raymond and sister Rita Sabourin.
Maurice retired from Falconbridge Nickel Mines in the early 90’s, he loved to play golf and was a member of Idylwylde Golf & Country Club for over 30 years. He was very talented and took pride in everything he did; petit point, wood working, and quilting.
In 2016, Maurice and Lena moved to southern Ontario to be closer to their children and grandchildren. He always enjoyed family time, playing cards and especially playing golf and shooting pool with the boys.
Maurice will be deeply missed by his many nieces and nephews, lovingly remembered by his extended family and friends and all those whose lives were touched by his gentle humour, love and kindness.
