Bobby Lynn "Bob" Kimberlin, 66, Columbus

Bobby Lynn "Bob" Kimberlin, 66, Columbus, a jack-of-all-trades and master of many, died Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, at his home.

Born Oct. 24, 1946, in Burkes Garden, Va., Bob enjoyed the “good ol’ days” where kids would walk 10 miles to school, uphill both ways. That was not an issue for Bob because he skipped most days of school in favor of hunting. A lifelong prankster, he could tell some good stories. He was a true God-fearing Southerner and made sure to read and study his Bible every day. If Bob wasn’t out breaking something on a tractor or working with a horse, he could usually be found in his sewing room or wood working shop. He was the local handyman, always there to help anyone who needed a hand.

Although he thought they were a bunch of yahoos and frequently told them so, Bob loved his children with his whole heart: Kathy (Robert) Noble of Columbus, Ricky (Debbie) Kimberlin Sr. of North Carolina, Joni (Tim) Bean of Columbus, Jessica (David) Deffendall of Tennessee, James (Jessie) Kimberlin of Henryville, and Jacob Kimberlin of Nashville, account for the gray hair on Bob’s head. As much as he loved his kids, he was quick to let you know that he would have skipped the kids and gone straight to his grandbabies if he could have: Stacy (Jake) Findley, Clint and Samantha Noble, Ricky Jr. and Jesse Kimberlin, Wyatt and Addilynn Deffendall, and Reese Bean were the light in his life. He was blessed to be able to enjoy three great-grandchildren, Palik and Walter Findley and Adelina Noble. Bob also is survived by a sister, Joyce Carlson; and two brothers, Jack and Mike Kimberlin. He will also be remembered by his right-hand man and fifth son, Marc Seitz; and numerous other friends and loved ones. After all, Bob never met a stranger.

One son, Micky Kimberlin; his parents, Les and Ethel Kimberlin; two sisters; two brothers; and his best friend and brother, Dewey Kimberlin, preceded him in death.

The viewing will be at Jewell-Rittman Family Funeral Home from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. He will be buried next to his brother, Dewey, in West Virginia. A graveside service is scheduled with family and friends.
