James "Jimmy" A Cambron

1952 - 2021

Lewisport, KY


James A. “Jimmy” Cambron, 68, of Lewisport, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital.  He was born in Daviess County, Ky on July 24, 1952 to the late Iva and Mary Mattingly Cambron.  Jimmy operated C & B Sunoco and later Cambron Automotive in Lewisport for 14 years.   He also raised tobacco on the side for 20 years.  He later retired from Hancock County Road Department.

Jimmy dedicated his time to Lewisport Baptist Church and never wanted to miss a brotherhood breakfast.  He also kept busy by mowing yards and bushhogging farms for Randy Stroup.  Jimmy’s main passion in life was trapshooting and running Daviess County Fish and Game trap range.  In his younger days, he loved hot rodding on the street and racing at local tracks, which then turned into antique tractor pulling with his brother Robert Lee for many years.  He loved his family unconditionally and never missed an opportunity to tell them with a big bear hug and saying I love you.

Jimmy was preceded in death by a son Kenneth Scott Cambron; siblings, Charles Estill Cambron, Pauline Roberts, Barbara Jean Boehman, Grace Rafferty, Bertha Finney and Libby Kelly.

Jimmy is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Ann Cambron; son, Keith (Kelly) Cambron; grandchildren Jennah, Kylee and Emma Cambron; siblings, Robert Lee (Connie) Cambron, Clyde (Anita) Cambron, Joe (Deborah) Cambron, Mary Ann (Larry) Hubbard, Maggie (Wayne) Craig, Edith Bennett and Brenda (June) Brown; sister in laws, Kathy (Marvin) Storm, Gay (Mike) Hutchinson, Brenda (Rob) Tucker and Barbara (Eddie) Dant; brother in laws, Rickie (Debbie) Noble and Everett (Bonnie) Noble along with many nieces and nephews.

Funeral services for Jimmy will be private with burial in Lewisport Cemetery.  Family and Church family are welcome to attend Jimmy’s services.  Gibson & Son Funeral Home, Lewisport has been entrusted to handle Jimmy’s final arrangements.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Lewisport Baptist Church Building Fund.

Jimmy and I were distant cousins, so he always greeted me with “Hey Cuz”. I enjoyed his company and became good friends with Andrea (Ann) as well. I hadn’t seen him in years, but will miss him.

Jimmy was always kind and loving person. I had a conversation with him a few months ago in the Dollar Store. He mentioned being sick and spoke about Danny House. The family has suffered a great loss but God is able to comfort you all. Prayers for the family.

Jimmy will be missed. He was more like a brother to me than an uncle .

Heaven has another angel watching over us.
