Jackie Ferman Wimberly

June 20, 1939 — August 19, 2022

Jackie Ferman Wimberly, 83, of Camden, TN passed away on Friday, August 19, 2022 at his residence. Mr. Wimberly was born on June 20, 1939 in Camden, TN to the late Joseph Arvin Wimberly and Thelma Coleman Wimberly.  He was also preceded by a sister, Janice Gillon and a grandson, Clinton Randall Wimberly. Mr. Wimberly is survived by his wife of 64 years, Lois Smothers Wimberly; sons Randy (Brenda) Wimberly and Keith (Tonya) Wimberly; daughter Lisa (Ray) Higdon; sister Brenda (Jimmy) Bennett; grandchildren Jill (Stephen) King, Ryan (Chelsa) Ange, Bretta (Nic) Farina, Jessica Ange, Brandon (Kelsey) Wimberly, Bailey Wimberly, Bennett (Jennifer) Wimberly, Jack Higdon, Spencer Higdon; and Fifteen great grandchildren.

Jackie was a member and deacon of Cross Roads Missionary Baptist Church, serving in many capacities throughout the years, including Sunday School Superintendent and as a member of the building committee.

Mr. Wimberly partnered with his brother-in-law Darel Smothers to start and grow S & W Pallet Co. Inc. into a company employing as many as 88 people at one time. Previously, he worked as a supervisor at Genesco Shoe Company.

Mr. Wimberly enjoyed working in the cattle operation he ran with his son, but the biggest joy in his life was watching the antics of his grandchildren and great grandchildren. With family gatherings numbering into the 30’s, he often commented that he didn’t need any presents, just to be in the presence of his family.
