Kevin Carol Binkley 250.jpgEveryone in the Charlotte Master Chorale family is saddened by the recent death of our beloved chorister, Kevin Carl Binkley. We will miss Kevin's warmth, his generosity, and his voice. We extend our condolences and deepest sympathies to his family. Charlotte Master Chorale was important to Kevin, and we have reprinted his obituary so that you may know more about this beautiful soul.

Kevin Carl Binkley, 59, of Charlotte, North Carolina, passed away on February 19, 2021.  Kevin shared coming into the world in Detroit, Michigan, with his two sisters, Kay and Kelly. He adored them both and was forever impressed with his mother, Jill, for triple-tasking her maternity with triplets. Kelly preceded Kevin in death in 1993. Kevin loved Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan, where he graduated with General Studies (Economics) and MBA (Finance) degrees.  He worked for Jacobson Stores at the headquarters in Jackson, Michigan, for 15 years, as treasurer for a majority of those years. He loved Jacobson's and its family of associates, customers, and stakeholders.  He worked at Belk, Inc., in Charlotte, North Carolina, for nine years, as treasurer for the last several of those years.
