Charles H. Kimbell Obituary
July 21, 1933 - August 20, 2017 Charles H. Kimbell of Winnetka, CA died on August 20, 2017 after a long illness. After his father's death and during his mother's lengthy convalescence from tuberculosis, Charlie fondly spent most of his childhood at the McKinley Home for Boys, then in Van Nuys, CA. The simple pleasures sustained him-doing every job well during his decades in construction, remodeling his homes, or meticulously and patiently designing and building award winning custom hot rods. He was a gregarious and generous friend and neighbor, inspiring loyalty among all who knew him, from his Marine drill sergeant to his car buddies and fellow "mall crawlers". Above all, the foundation of his life was the never diminished love affair with his wife of sixty years, Angeles. Charlie is survived by Angeles and their four children, Jorge, Lillian (Nathan), Dan (Yuka), Jeanette (Rick), and their seven grandchildren, Carlos, Sayuri, Alex, Nichole, Tess, Nick and Allison. Charlie's life will be commemorated in a private ceremony. A special thanks to Mo Naim and his staff at Primrose Senior Care Home for their loving care and kind support.
