Ron Kimes

Ron Kimes

Assistant Funeral Director

I began working for Lamb-Roberts Funeral Home in 1998 as a grief counselor for the community; the group met weekly for seven years. Also at this time I was a licensed pre-need representative for the funeral home. For families that do not have a minister, I conduct the services and I help with the funerals and occasionally help with visitations. 

I was a counselor at Ottawa High School for twenty years and worked as an English and Speech teacher for ten years prior to that. Golf is one of my great passions. Being deeply involved in my church, the First Assembly of God, is very important to me and at one time I was the Associate Pastor for thirty years. 

Serving in the Kansas National Guard for twenty one years was my way of serving my country. Another love I have is teaching Speech and Comparative Religion at Neosho Community College on the weekends. 

I have been a part of the Ottawa community for forty five years and I enjoy meeting and working with people. DeeAnna and I have one daughter, Patricia and two grandsons, Geoff and Zach.

Funeral Ambassador

I started working at Lamb-Roberts Funeral Home in May of 1997. 

My main job is working the family visitations but I also help with funerals and various jobs around the funeral home. 

I graduated from Ottawa High School in 1959 and from Evangel University in 1963. I taught English, typing and computers at Ottawa High School from 1964-1997. Basically I am an Ottawa original. 

First Assembly of God is my home church and I am very involved there. I am an avid gardener and love my flowers. Being an animal lover I couldn’t do without my dog or cat. Any spare time I find I am reading, scrapbooking, making cards or walking. 

I love working at Lamb-Roberts Funeral Home because I love people. As a resident of Ottawa for almost 55 years, I know many hometown people and enjoy getting reacquainted with so many of my former students. Ron and I have one daughter, Patricia and two grandsons, Geoff and Zach.
