Charles “Charlie” Kimes

By | Uncategorized | 7 Comments

6/7/1929 – 3/11/2017

Charles Kimes was born June 7, 1929 in Winona, Mississippi to Frank and Viola (Elmore) Kimes.   “Charlie” was one of twelve children.

He learned the value of hard work from his father and his mother exemplified faith and prayer in their home.  Charles accepted Christ at an early age.   He worked hard to support his family first in Louisville Kentucky and then later in Durant Mississippi.

Charles eventually worked his way to Omaha, Nebraska in the mid-1960s on the invitation of his brother Samuel, who was serving in the U.S. Air Force.  He worked as a machinist with Vickers Inc., but during times of layoffs, he held a variety of other jobs to support his family.  He finally retired from Vickers after 28 years of service.  Not being one to ever sit still, he immediately began a second career as a Westlake Hardware Sales Associate.  He even had a hauling business, so in addition to providing for his family, he helped other families move their households.

Charles found abundant joy in church service.  He faithfully served as a Deacon, van driver, Men’s Ministry member, and wherever or however, he was needed at Pilgrim Baptist Church.  He loved his PBC family and they equally loved him.

His past times included maintaining his home and yard, cultivating his vegetable garden, and fixing vehicles of any make and model.

He was very special and very unique.  Charles was consistently patient and kind to whomever he came in contact with.  He didn’t hesitate to offer an encouraging word or share a laugh.

Charles married Lillian Anthony in 1963.  They celebrated their Golden Anniversary in November 2013 shortly before Lillian’s passing.

God saw fit to call him home on March 11, 2017 to be reunited with his wife, parents, brothers, sisters, and other family members who have gone before him.

He will be sadly missed by four sons:  Eddie Charles (Violeta) Kimes, Larry Kimes, Charles (Valeria) Smith and Cedric (Traci) Kimes; four daughters:  Brenda Marshall, Joyce Ann (Nicholas) Wright, LaSonia Kimes, & Felicia (Joe) Richardson; brother Samuel Kimes of Durant, MS and Sister Flora Bailey of Louisville, KY, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Very special thanks to Sis Barbara Smith, Louis Richardson, Winston Lee and their families.  We will always appreciate the services of MOBY Transit, DCI – Dialysis Center 33rd and Dodge.

You may pick up the paper and read that Charles Kimes is dead.  Don’t you believe a word of it, I was born in the flesh in 1929 – I was born in the Spirit in 1941.  What’s born of the flesh will die.  But what’s born of the spirit will live forever.

Visitation Friday 6:00 – 8:00 PM at Roeder Mortuary 4932 Ames Avenue Omaha, Nebraska; Funeral Service 9:00 AM Saturday (3/18/2017) at Pilgrim Baptist Church 2501 Hamilton Street Omaha, Nebraska; Interment Mount Hope Cemetery Omaha, Nebraska
