Johnny Kirk Wimberly

Johnny Kirk Wimberly, 64 of Amarillo, passed away June 28, 2024, surrounded by his family.  He was born September 17, 1959, in Valdosta, Georgia to James Wimberly and Carol Rowland.

Anyone that knew Johnny saw love and kindness; one that always went the extra mile at work. He owned several businesses and managed others. Some may remember him from his years at Hummers in Amarillo, others may remember Wimberly’s Landscape, and then most recent as a Security Guard for APS. He loved his kids and grandkids… saving pictures from any of the social media to show them off, helping however he could, coaching them as kids, laughing with them one last time, and letting them know he loved them. Johnny will be missed by all.

He was preceded in death by his father, James Wimberly, his mother, Carol Rowland, and his stepfather, Bill Rowland.

Johnny is survived by a daughter, Mandie Andrews and husband Ray of Georgetown, Texas, his sons, Joshua Wimberly and wife Amber of Austin, Texas, Jordan Wimberly of Amarillo, Texas, Tyler Wimberly and wife Stephanie of Jarrell, Texas; his brothers Keith Wimberly, Joey Wimberly and wife Barbara of Lakeland, Georgia, and the better looking brother, Curtis Rowland of McLean Texas; a sister, Karen Vye and husband Mat of Johnstown, Colorado; an aunt, Lovie Pittman; several grandchildren along with nephews and nieces.

    I really enjoyed coaching Kids Inc. Football years ago when our boys were little. He loved the kids and coaching. Great memories.

    I grew up with Johnny and with the rest of the Highland Park gang. We had great fun together, such an awesome time to be a kid! Johnny was an inspiration, loved music and was always a joy to be around. 💜

    I am so sorry to hear this news. I knew Johnny from my Highland Park days and the old air base. He was a sweet guy.
    RIP friend.

    Johnny was my boss for a short while he was a good man. He went above and beyond to help me when my babysitter would fail.

    My husband and I worked for Johnny for a couple of years when he was a manager at Harrah’s. During this time we both came to love Johnny as a friend and in some instances, a father. Johnny had a gentle nature to him and truly cared for anyone he crossed paths with. I believe if anyone has a spot in Heaven, it’s Johnny. We love you and will miss you. We are so sorry for the family’s loss.
