Obituary for William Earl Kimbrough

William Earl Kimbrough passed peacefully from this life on May 14, 2016 at his home in Pamplin, VA where he lived with his wife of 51 years, Sherry Kimbrough. He was 76 years old. Known as Bill, "Pops" to his family and friends, he was a family man who was devoted to his wife, son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren. Bill was actively involved with his church, Heritage Baptist where he served as a deacon. He was also involved for many years with the senior bowling league, and his favorite past-times were fishing with his son, Chris, enjoying his family and growing a garden every year, often sharing the produce with his neighbors.

Bill served in the Army from 1961 to 1964 earning the rank of E5 before his discharge. Sherry met Bill in Richmond shortly after he left the Army and they were they married on August 8, 1965 at Elkhardt Baptist Church in Chesterfield, VA. Bill worked for DuPont for 25 years and for the Virginia Department of corrections for 10 years.

Bill is preceded in death by his mother, Gladys; father, James Paul; brothers David and Earnest; and his sisters Florence and Geneva. He is survived by his wife, Sherry; son Chris; daughter-in-law Alice; grandchildren Luke, Megan, and Raymond; and sister, Priscilla.
