1961 – 2022
Mr. Bobby Charles Wimbley, 60, was born in Bainbridge, GA on October 5, 1961, to the parentage of the late Mr. Alex Wimbley, Sr. and Mrs. Bessie Wimbley. Bobby ended his earthly struggles and departed to wondrous heavenly rest on April 23, 2022.
To celebrate his life, a lovely memorial was held on Saturday, April 30, 2022, at Hurt’s Funeral Home Chapel, officiated by Minister Ketius Hurt, Minister Theodora Sneed was the eulogist and Minister L. Jordan assisting.
Bobby, or “Kat Kat” as loved ones called him, attended school in the Bainbridge school system until the mid-70’s, at which point he moved to Eatonton, GA as an industrious young man to join the workforce. After years of laboring on dairy farms, Bobby eventually went on to a position at the Collins Marina before, finally, towards the end of his dedicated years of employment, Bobby ended up working for Hallman Woods in Eatonton until 2011. At that time, Bobby made the decision to move back to Bainbridge. In the following years, Bobby enjoyed the opportunity to live his life to the fullest; Kat Kat was able to do exactly what he wanted to do.
Whether it was hanging with his family, having the time of his life playing spades, or going fishing with his sister, Bobby got the chance to do it all. Of all those things, his absolute favorite pastime was most certainly the fishing. It was also a special mission of his to help people, and his kind and loving heart led him in that endeavor. It wasn’t until 2021, when his health began to fail, that Bobby again returned to Eatonton to be nearer to, and to spend more quality time, with his children and grandchildren. There Bobby remained until he made his way to his final, blessed rest. Bobby was preceded in death by: his grandparents, John and Curly Wimbley and John and Emma Rogers; his parents, Alex Sr. and Bessie Wimbley; three brothers, Willie Charles Wimbley, Willie Joe Wimbley, and Alex Wimbley; and two sisters, Rosa Lee Jones, and Rita Wimbley.
To celebrate his life, Bobby leaves: three children, Barbara Monday (Jarvis), Bobby Harden (Patrice), and Veronica Powell (Daniel); nine grandchildren, Kentrell Lewis, Kassidy Lewis, Daylan Veasley, Erwion Veasley, Chase Veasley, Bobby A. Harden, Levi Harden, Mariah Boddie, and Brandon Daniel; one brother, Sylvester Wimbley (Aretha); four sisters, Gladys Fasion (Willie), Rosa Clemons, Catherine Lewis, Yvonne Venis-zee; and twenty-three nieces and nephews along with a host of other friends and family members.
