    He was preceded in death by his wife of fifty six years, Ruby Gibson Kufel and a daughter, Lena Kufel Overby.

    Visitation will be from 11:00 a.m. until time for service

    Pallbearers will be Johnathan Jimerson, Jason Jimerson, Shane Jimerson, Jay Jimerson, Dustin Murray and Brent Overby.
