He served in the U.S. Navy and was active during the Korean War. Harry worked as a plumber and pipefitter and was a member of the Local 198 Union. He was a faithful member of Judson Baptist Church. His favorite past times included: reading his Bible, coon hunting, tending to his garden, tinkering with any available tractor, “counting his pennies” also known as napping like a champ, telling funny stories, and out eating anyone at any table at any time. Harry was a man’s man. He was everyone’s “favorite.” He was the definition of strong: strong in his faith, strong in his beliefs. He brought joy and love to everyone. He will be missed dearly. The Kimble family would like to extend special recognition to the outstanding caretakers and services of New Centry Hospice Care. Mrs. Garnette Brignac and Mrs. Lartarsha Joseph, Your love is appreciated. May God bless you as you have blessed the Kimble family.
