Charles Leonard Kimes, age 87, went to be with his Lord on April 1, 2021. Leonard married his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Joyce DeLee Stitt on May 17, 1952. They were blessed with 4 daughters: Kathy (Steven) Smith, Bonnie (Tim) Small, Lori (Michael) LaShure and Lynell (Dale) Coverdale.

Leonard was a farmer his whole life. Even after he retired from farming, the love of the land never left him. Riding in the combine during harvest with his neighbor Mark Hasty brought him great enjoyment.
