JIMMY C. KINCHELOE
August 22, 1955 ˜ December 28, 2021
Jimmy C. Kincheloe went to Heaven on Tuesday, Dec. 28, 2021, thanking Jesus and holding his wife’s hand after a long illness, in a Vancouver, WA, hospital.
Jimmy was born in Healdsburg, CA, on Aug. 22, 1955. He attended schools in Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, and Rohnert Park, graduating from Rancho Cotati High School in 1973. He completed The Carpenters Local #751 Apprenticeship Program through the Santa Rosa Junior College in 1982. He loved being a carpenter.
Jimmy met Julie Rousseau in Santa Rosa in 1976. They married in 1977. Jimmy worked in California, Oregon, Washington and Alaska. He moved to Washington State in 2002.
Jimmy is survived by his wife and three children: Jaclyn Netherton (Joshua), Jamie Donnelly (James), and Jesse Kincheloe (Erica).
He is survived by six grandchildren, James and Caleb Netherton, Ayllin and Elijah Donnelly, and Jackson and Jonah Kincheloe. He is also survived by his “Pop”, Peter Carstens; his brother Ray Jackson (Donna); sisters, Sandy Lewman and Patty Swanson (Jeff); and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his father, John C. Kincheloe; his mother, Lorraine Carstens; sister and brother in-law, Frances and David Bettiga; sister-in-law, Barbara Jackson and brother-in-law, Keith Lewman.
Jimmy so loved all his family. He would say his brothers-in-laws were like brothers to him.
Jimmy had requested cremation with his ashes spread near Kincheloe Point on the Oregon Coast.
Never one to want a birthday party where he was the center of attention, he also did not want a large funeral or Memorial. He would want us to look to Jesus, his Lord and Savior for comfort and peace. As Jimmy loved to cook, we may have a family dinner in his memory later this year.
