FUNERAL HOME
Russon Brothers Mortuary - Bountiful

Our big brother peacefully passed away surrounded by his brothers and sisters in law.

Jeff fought an infection brought on by rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes, until his last breath.

He is the first of five boys, born and raised by his loving parents Warren V Kimber and Barbara Jorgensen Kimber in Woods Cross, UT.

Jeff spent his 60th birthday in the MICU at the U of U Hospital in Salt Lake City. He reached his goal of making it to 60.

He attended Woods Cross High School and was in the first class to graduate from the new school in 1979. Jeff has a son, Kyle William Jones of Woods Cross. He loved Kyle very much and spent a great deal of time with him fishing, going out to eat, or just puttering around the house.

He loved the outdoors and camping. He loved fishing and golfing with Dad every chance he got.

Jeff also took good care of Mom. He was able to visit her often at her care facility in Bountiful. They talked about their beloved Boston Redsox Baseball team, the cat, etc.. He made sure she had clean clothes to wear and was being well taken care of.

Jeff was involved in his nieces and nephews lives as much as possible. He loved seeing them and catching up with them. They will all miss him very much.

Jeff was a regular at May's Bar and Grill back in the day. He met a few of his long term friends there and has kept in touch with them. He was pretty good at throwing darts and shooting pool. He also enjoyed playing golf in the Lakeside Men's Association until his hands couldn't do it anymore.

It was a rare occasion for Jeff to miss a family reunion on either side of the family. He loved seeing and joking around with his aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Jeff had a number of jobs. He built metal buildings, did concrete work, and built cell towers with Mark for a few years.

We would like to thank the medical staff at University of Utah Hospital for the amazing care and compassion they provided Jeff for the last week of his life.

Jeff is preceded in death by his grandparents, dad, younger brother, Clayton Howard Kimber, and a few aunts, uncles and cousins. We're sure the reunion on the other side was incredible.

He is survived by his son, Kyle. mom, and three remaining brothers. Mark (Jill) Kimber of Centerville, UT Chuck (Loreen) Kimber of Layton UT, and Eston (Lauren) Kimber of Layton UT, and numerous nieces and nephews. Jeff will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Dear Barbara, Mark, Chuck, Eston and family, Please accept my condolences. I´m truly sorry that Jeff has passed. I would run into him every now and then. He would always come over and give me a big hug. I was very surprised the first time he gave me a hug. Most grown men don´t hug their childhood babysitter! Mark gives me a big hug too when I run into him! Their parents taught them well! I have some good memories of watching the 5 boys when they were young. They were each so different. Jeff seemed to be the more quiet one to me. He seemed to be the same as an adult. Very nice and respectful. I´ll keep Jeff and all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Tina (Oliver) Amthor
