George was the beloved husband of Cynthia Cahal Kimble for 43 glorious years.

He was a devoted father to three wonderful children: George Kimble Jr. (Caroline) of Prairieville, Douglas Kimble (Angie) of LaPlace and Cynthia Kimble Bordelon (Andrew) of Reserve.

As a grandfather to six, his little “pumpkin doodles” are Kaitlin, Maci, Ashton, Gavin, Jackson and Luke.
