Charles M. Kimber

Charles M. Kimber, age 87, of Canton, Minnesota, and formerly of the Burr Oak, Iowa area, died Saturday, March 30, 2013 at his home.

Charles Milo Kimber was born on September 6, 1925 to Elmer and Alice (Bolson) Kimber in Winneshiek County, Iowa. Charles (Chuck) grew up in the

Burr Oak area, graduating from Canton High School in 1945. Chuck married Alice Muchow December 22, 1954. They raised 6 children together, sharing their values and love of the land, fishing and importance of the simple things in life. If it could be fixed, Chuck would find a way, nothing was wasted. Chuck and Alice farmed together near Burr Oak until retiring, eventually moving to Canton. He continued to fish and “putter” as long as his health would permit, preferring to be outside rather than in.

Many evenings and family gatherings included playing cards and laughing with family and friends. He spent hours reading, watching PBS and listening to Nascar on the radio.

Chuck is survived by his wife Alice, and children Debra Douglas, Flower Mound, TX; Barb (Brad) Kerns, Canton; MN, Loren Kimber, Waukon, IA; Steve (Jean) Kimber, Cresco, IA; Al Kimber, Wichita, KS; and Linda Kimber, Rochester, MN; 15 grandchildren; as well as 21 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and only brother, Irvin Kimber.

Funeral services were Thursday, April 4th at the Burr Oak Lutheran Church in Burr Oak with the Rev. Matt Larson officiating. Burial was in the Burr Oak Cemetery.
