Obituary for Edward Earl Kimbrough
KIMBROUGH, Edward Earl 95, of Brandon, was born on July 14, 1926 and passed away on June 19, 2022. He is survived by his daughters, Katrina (Wallace) Brake, Lealaine (Karl) Harris and Kylie (Caleb) Harris Beggs; sister-in-laws, LaNelle Weiss and Linda Cutts; 5 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Earl Kimbrough regarded himself, an amateur artist, writer, historian, and preacher. His main activity aside from preaching was the study of Restoration Movement History and painting numerous watercolor portraits and scenes. But besides preaching, writing was what he enjoyed most, publishing a total of 20 books in his lifetime. Ten of his books were published during the last two years of his life while he was confined to his bed. He wrote several hundred articles for various gospel papers and has been referred to as “The most voluminous writer of Restoration Movement History”. Earl’s first love has always been preaching the Gospel. He began preaching during his college years at Florida Christian College and continued to preach for 70 years. He served as a regular preacher in Frostproof, FL (3 years), Largo, FL (2 years), Dothan, AL (9 years on two occasions), Waycross, GA (6 years), Brandon, FL (16 years) and East Bay near Sun City Center, FL (25 years). He preached in over 20 states, and three foreign countries and did missionary work in Barbados along with preaching in Florida prisons. Earl recently wrote the following in reference to his life as a preacher. “From the first day I stepped into a pulpit to preach my first gospel sermon my life had the life of a proclaimer of the gospel in the usual ways common to preachers and I have loved every minute of it and never looked back.” A Celebration of Life will be conducted on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 at Brandon Church of Christ at 5:30 PM with family receiving friends one hour prior to services. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you do something to show your love for another- John 15:12.
