Jay Kimbro Obituary | On Wednesday, July 21, 2021, at ARMC, Joseph “Jay” Kimbro, 86, went to be with the Lord. He was a native of Alamance County and the father of Becky Minor Kimbro, who is still alive after 42 years of marriage. His parents, Lonnie P. Kimbro and Elma Fuquay Kimbro, died when he was a child.
For almost 35 years, Jay worked for McKee Baking, which is now McKee Foods, as a distributor of Little Debbie snack cakes. For 17 years, he sang in a Christian gospel group called Selah, and he was a huge fan of music in general. He served in the U.S. Army for a number of years.
There are 12 stepchildren and one step great-grandchild in his family; he also leaves behind a sister-in-law and two nieces and nephews.
On Sunday, July 25, 2021, at 3:00 p.m. at Friendship United Methodist Church, the funeral service will be led by Rev. Thurman Horney and Rev. Walter Jones. Pine Hill cemetery will serve as the last resting place for the deceased. Before the service, the family will be open to visitors from 1:30 to 2:30.
When it came time to get his licence renewed, Agent Jay Kimbro had to retake the exams he had taken in college and complete additional training to keep it.
According to Kimbro, “He’s made folks aware of some things that need to be altered, you know, to ensure that something like this does not happen in the future and I’m convinced that Commissioner Hudgens will do just that.”
Kimbro believes that the tests that agents must pass are difficult, and that they should be in order to ensure that they are providing excellent service to their clients.
He hopes that Oxendine will be required to take the tests in order to maintain his licences. Mitch Masters, a ’00 UGA grad, and Jay Kimbro, a ’02 UGA grad, founded Microf, a company that provides residential lease-to-own products for the HVAC industry.
“It is a great honour to be recognised as one of the best companies in the United States. This award is a credit to the hard effort our entire Microf team puts in every day, as demonstrated by this recognition.
CEO Mitch Masters says the company is grateful for what it has accomplished and continues to set goals with the aim of bringing efficiencies through technology and data to its OEM, Distributor and Contractor network.

On the list were companies from California and Minnesota. This year’s Bulldog 100 companies saw an average compound annual growth rate of 47 percent.

Between February and May of 2017, nominations were accepted for the Bulldog 100. There were 101 companies on this year’s list, with a tie for 45th place.

Each of the honorees deserves this recognition since they have dedicated so much of their time and energy to their businesses. “We are proud of their accomplishments,” they said.
