Herman L. Kimble

Herman L. Kimble, 94, departed this life at 3:50 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 18, 2009, in Serenity Care Home, where he was a resident.

He was born Sept. 23, 1914, in Grant County, the son of the late Arthur and Zella Kimble.

On Dec. 24, 1938, he married Bessie V. Alt, who survives.

In addition to his wife, Herman is survived by three sons, Jerry L. Kimble and wife, Patty, William M. "Bill" Kimble and wife, Sharon, and Wayne L. Kimble and wife, Diane, all of Buckhannon. Also surviving are six grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; one brother, Glenn Kimble of Petersburg; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Herman was preceded in death by one brother, Lenford Kimble; and three sisters, Gerna Feaster, Opal Alt and Annie Kimble.

Herman was employed by the F.C. Cook Lumber Co. and lately by the city of Buckhannon as the street commissioner.

Herman was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Buckhannon where he attended Sunday school and worship and was a member of the United Methodist Men. He was also an active member of the American Association of Retired Persons.

Herman loved the outdoors and enjoyed his vegetable garden each year. He gave much of his produce to neighbors, family and friends. In his later years, his winters were spent looking at seed catalogues and planning next year's crops.

Friends will be received from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Poling-St. Clair Funeral Home and from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Schaeffer Funeral Home in Petersburg. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 22, at Schaeffer Funeral Home with the Rev. Dr. Damon Rhodes officiating. Burial will follow in South Branch Memorial Gardens in Petersburg
