Jimmy had the most amazing and optimistic outlook on life. He was very generous and had a great sense of humor. He was an avid wood worker and artist, loved playing cards, and being with his family. He was also very fond of pie, coffee, the desert, and the Green Bay Packers, not necessarily in that order.
His life started in Idaho Falls on November 17, 1952 as the fourth child of eight to Parley Lawrence Nebel and Cordelia (Hill) Nebel. After Nampa High School, he joined the United States Army were he traveled to places like Germany. In 1975, he and his wife Jennene, of four years, had a daughter, Jamie Marie Nebel. He ventured to California, and eventually move to Arizona later to meet his wife, Robin. Together they owned and ran her family bar in Strawberry, AZ. Once their first grandson was born, in 1998, they moved back to Idaho. Jimmy worked for years at Fleetwood until he retired in 2012. He laughed at every chance, cracked jokes, wasn’t afraid to dress up, wear wigs and was just silly. He cherished time spent with loved ones.
His is now reunited in Heaven with his wife, Robin, family and friends. Location; a new wonderful place where he will be playing cards, dancing, and reading to his heart’s content. Music, laughter and love are guaranteed. Food is delicious there and he can finally enjoy a maple bar with his cup of coffee again.
Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents, Lawrence and Cordelia Nebel; sisters, Carol Hogan and Wanda Dunn and his wife Robin. He left behind one daughter, Jamie Rehl (Shon Carr) and three grandsons Harrison, Nolan and Maxwell Rehl (his law firm he called them) of Boise, ID. Sisters, Myra Sullivan of AZ, Susan Jackson (Varell) of Grangeville, ID, brothers; Donnie Nebel (Christal) of Star, ID and Kerry Nebel of Nampa, ID and baby sister Addie Kinney (Ronald) of Nampa, ID. Along with a countless number of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews who loved and adored their Uncle Jimmy so dearly.
