Mike Kimbrow, of Burnet, Texas, passed away on April 28, 2019 with his wife, Sherry, by his side, after many years of a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s and declining health.

He served in the Army National Guard for six years.

Mike married Sherry Pederson in Midland, Texas on July 19, 1975. They shared nearly 44 years of a happy marriage. They were transferred from Midland to San Antonio in Nov. 1990 and lived there for five-and-half years. After leaving San Antonio, they moved to the Highland Lakes area, living on Lake LBJ in Kingsland, Texas for 5-and-a-half years and finally to the shores of Lake Buchanan, finding their dream home overlooking the lake over 17 years ago.

Mike and Sherry enjoyed cruising and had gone on 22 cruises over the years, mostly to the Caribbean which they loved.

Mike was predeceased by his parents, Horace (1978) and Elisabeth (2000) Kimbrow; and an older brother, Jack Kimbrow (1995).
