Kimbrell, who said he had been looking for another place to live, said he was told last week that an agreement between the parties had been hammered out and he had until March 19 to leave the residence and that his lease would not be renewed. Kimbrell said he has received no help from the property owner, a company known as Tex Plex LLC in Valencia, Calif., which told him they prefer to let the property manager handle the problem.
Kimbrell received a phone call at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday that the property manager did not agree to a March 19 agreement and that he had 30 minutes to vacate the residence. A hearing took place Dec. 19.
“Around 10 a.m. a bunch of guys came to empty out the place,” Kimbrell said. “A (Parker County) sheriff’s deputy said if my stuff wasn’t off the lawn by (Wednesday morning), they would come and remove it and the property manager could do whatever he wanted with it.”
Kimbrell, who lives on disability after 20 years with Burlington Northern, says he has nowhere to turn. The Boston native says his family is unable to help him. He said his wife has reportedly left him over the incident and eviction.
Since he only spent two years in the Army in Germany and wasn’t disabled due to his time in the military, he says he can’t receive benefits from the military.
“She has a hotel somewhere in town, but won’t tell me where it is,” Kimbrell said. “Right now, though, I’m trying to find a place for my stuff and a truck to haul it away and a hotel.”
Because of his wife’s absence, Kimbrell says a hotel becomes a bit of a problem as if he were to fall, which he admits he has done, he would need assistance getting back into his wheelchair. He’s hoping if he can’t find a place to stay, one of his neighbors would take him in temporarily.
Calls and e-mails to Richardson and to Tex Plex were not returned.
