Clifton B. "Kip" Killmon

El Paso, TX-Clifton B. "Kip" Killmon, an award-winning real estate broker and a longtime businessman in Pocomoke City, Maryland, died November 12 in El Paso, Texas after a brief illness. He was 92.

Mr. Killmon, who was born October 22, 1921 to Edgar H. and Avlyn Estelle Killmon, grew up on a family farm in Jenkins Bridge on Virginia's Eastern Shore.

He and his wife Margie eventually settled in Pocomoke where they raised two children and began a varied career in several businesses over the years, including two Flying A Service Stations, a Hertz car rental franchise, and a Sears catalogue store in downtown Pocomoke.

During World War II, Mr. Killmon worked in the Newport News Shipyard in Virginia, a strategic center of the Navy's shipbuilding arsenal that helped win the war in the Pacific.

He and his wife moved to El Paso in 1983, and launched a successful new career in real estate where they won several Million Dollar Award plaques.

For the past seven months, they have been residing in El Paso's MonteVista Retirement Community, a senior citizens facility nestled in the foothills of the city.

Mr. Killmon was active in the Baptist church, both in Pocomoke and El Paso, the Masons and did hospital volunteer work in his later years.

In Virginia, he was a member of Temperanceville Lodge No. 121, A.F. & A.M. for 69 years. He was a 32nd degree Mason and also a former member of the Boumi Shrine in Baltimore, Md., and the Maryland Scottish Rite Masons.

He was a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church and a Charter Member of Lynnhaven Baptist churches in Pocomoke. He served as a Deacon and Sunday School Superintendent.

He was also a member of El Paso's Immanuel Baptist Church where he was Sunday School Superintendent, and later, after moving to the city's west side, the First Baptist Church, serving on its visitation program.

Mr. Killmon is survived by his wife, Margie P. Killmon; a daughter, Judith Jumper and her husband Larry of El Paso, Texas; his son, Clifton B. Killmon, Jr. of Reston, Va.; and 7 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.

The funeral service that had been scheduled in November, had to be postponed due to a medical emergency for his wife, but thanks to a lot of prayers, she is now doing much better and the service has been rescheduled for Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 1:00 PM at the First Baptist Church in Pocomoke City, where family and friends will gather one hour prior to the service. Following a short reception, interment will follow in the Parksley Cemetery, 18676 County Road, Parksley, VA.
