Karl Kim Fitzwater

May 2, 1958 ~ March 29, 2022 (age 63)


Karl Kim Fitzwater (Kimbo) went to be with the lord March 29, 2022. He was born on May 2, 1958 in Charleston WV to the late Creedis Fitzwater & JoAnn Fitzwater Osborne. He was a retired Foreman for Fola Coal Company. Left to cherish his memory is Janet Fitzwater his wife of 43 years, daughters Amanda Fitzwater of Charleston, April (Heath) Cliver of Lizemores and Amy (Dustin) Burdette of Fairmont, son Andrew Fitzwater of Bickmore. Grandchildren, Cole and Nova Fitzwater, Jackson, Brooke, Tucker, Sadie, Kade and Etta Cliver, Ever and Emma Burdette and his only living Aunt, Vernal Taylor and a host of cousins and friends. Karl was preceded in death by his brother Danny Joe, Grandmother Gladys Metz Moore, his Aunt and Uncle Sandra and Jimmy Metz and Step Father Warren G. Osborne.
Kimbo was a private man and a bit of a loner but if he saw you he could talk your ear off. He was always ready to help a neighbor or someone that foolishly followed their GPS and ended up stuck on Beechy, he was firm but kind and very generous I’ve never known him to tell a lie not even a white one, he once took a pen from the Clay Bank Drive thru when he realized what he had done he turned around and drove 8 miles back to return it. In his later years he got to where he just couldn’t handle funerals and stopped attending them his excuse was “I want to remember them the way they were the last time I saw them” so with that being said Kimbo’s final wishes were for us to have a BBQ instead, Per Kimbo’s wishes there will be no service.
