Mr. McKinley taught my 1969 high school physics class. His enthusiasm, intellect, ability to challenge his students, good humor, ability to clearly explain complicated concepts, and his anecdotes were hallmarks of an exceptional teacher whom we were fortunate to have. My condolences to his family and friends.

My condolences to the Family of Mr. McKinley, I was speaking about Mr. McKinley recently talking about taking his biology class, he was an excellent teacher, although I struggled, not because of Mr. McKinley, just because I just didn't "get" some of the material, and I remember his lectures on evolution, obviously he made an impact on my life, rest in peace Mr. McKinley.
