James David Kindermann

James David Kindermann Jr, 34, of Louisville, Kentucky, passed away from a sudden illness at his home in Louisville, Kentucky that he shared with his life partner, Mary Beth Bowling, on Sunday, April 23rd, 2023.

James was born November 26, 1988, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, a son of Mary Ann Clarke of Ashland, Kentucky and his biological parents the late James D. Kindermann, Sr and Kathy Kindermann.

He was also preceded in death by his grandmother Elizabeth Clarke. James, also known by many as Jimmy, had taken many roles in his short life, but his favorite was being a father. He loved his three children (Liliana Grace Kindermann (13), Donovan James Kindermann (9), Vincent Alexander Kindermann (8)) and was always looking for ways to make memories with them. He was passionate about fishing and the Miami Dolphins, had a unique sense of humor, and had a well-developed skill for pushing people’s buttons. If we all had a nickel for each time we rolled our eyes and said, “Oh my god, Jimmy!” we could all retire comfortably.

In addition to his three children, and his mother, leaves behind an entire family and a whole bunch of tools that he obsessively collected and hoarded for those times when “you never know when you might need it” or he got a good deal on it. He is survived by his siblings Tiffany Clarke (Will Cremeans) of Ashland, Kentucky, Brittany Kirby (Joshua Kirby) of Bowling Green, Kentucky, Rebecca Kindermann of Champagne, Illinois, Victor Clarke Owingsville, Kentucky, Will Kindermann (Rachel) Kindermann of Maple Grove, Minnesota, Victor Kindermann of Savoy Illinois, Chris Kindermann of Taylorville, Illinois, Corienna Ranjo of Somerset, Kentucky, and Ricky Ranjo of Somerset, Kentucky; Aunt Virginia Clarke and her children Tamrin and Emily Clarke; uncles Frank Thacker and Kenny Thacker; nephew Aiden Conley; nieces Reagan Conley and Serenity Kirby; and many more.

A visitation will be from 6:00-8:00 pm, Thursday, April 27, 2023, at Reed Funeral Home in Greenup, Kentucky.

At the family’s request donations may be made towards funeral expenses to the funeral home. Condolences may be made at
