MELBOURNE, FLA. — KIMBLE – Herbert C., 85, Melbourne, Fla., passed into the arms of our Lord Jan. 11, 2014, under the loving care of Wuesthoff Hospice at Palm Cottage Assisted Living, Rockledge, Fla. Born Nov. 8, 1928, in Fort Ashley, W.Va. Preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, Dolores, on Dec. 14, 2013; brother Denver; and sisters, Bernice Wilson and Gertrude Howsare. Survived by brothers, Earl (Joyce) Kimble, Bedford; and Vernon (Evelyn) Kimble, Pulaski, Pa.; and sister, Arvella Carpenter, Youngstown, Ohio. He was raised and spent most of his earlier years in Bedford. He married the love of his life in 1950. To this union were born children, Susan (Dennis) Brady, Melbourne, Fla.; Tom (Barb) Kimble, Bedford, N.H.; and Kathy (Mike) Bourassa, Raymond, N.H. Survived by grandchildren, Ralph (Bonnie) Howell, Nanty Glo; Renee Kimble, Valatie, N.Y.; Jeffrey Howell, Denver, Colo.; and David (Jen) Bourassa, Raymond, N.H. He loved to spend time with his great-grandchildren, Zachary Sacco, Boston, Mass.; Jaclyn and Thomas Howell, Nanty Glo; and Adriana Howell, Melbourne, Fla.; but never got the chance to meet his newest great-grandchild, Logan Bourassa, Raymond, N.H. Herb worked as a truck driver for several trucking companies starting in 1950 and retiring in 1991. He collected many friends along the way. He enjoyed retirement years and took several memorable vacations with the family. He was an avid hunter and protector of his property. He was known for riding his quad with his handgun and German Shepard, Sheba, the last of his many dogs he owned over the years. His wife would say he had three H virtues in his life: Honesty, hard-working and Herb’s Way. He will be remembered as a fun loving, trusted friend, who was always eager to lend a hand. He was a skilled craftsman and enjoyed boating at Raystown Dam prior to moving to Florida in 2006. Herb requested to be cremated and have his ashes buried with his wife, Dolores, at a private memorial service-celebration of their lives at the family farm on Mile Hill Road, Johnstown. Arrangements by Davis Seawinds Funeral Home & Crematory, Melbourne, Fla.
