Gus was amusing and witty. His family recalls the well timed line:  “do unto others before they do it to you” and after voicing his line, Mr. Kimbrell would immediately look over Mrs. Kimbrell’s direction in anticipation of the “the look”.

Mr. Kimbrell was born June 21, 1939 in Idalou, TX. The 8 th child of 9 to his late parents Walter E. Kimbrell and Glessie Lawrence Kimbrell.  He was 77 years old.

Gus courted the former Wanda Wilkins and without a hint of doubt or uncertainty he married the love of his life on August 14, 1959 in Lubbock Texas.

Mr. Kimbrell worked as a mechanic.  He enjoyed the outdoors.

Survivors include his wife of 57 yrs., Wanda Kimbrell and their 3 sons:  Randy, Rodney and Roger Kimbrell all of Lubbock.

Gus leaves behind 9 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren, his only sibling Garland Kimbrell of Lubbock and numerous loving nieces and nephews.
