David T. Kimball passed away suddenly on May 3, 2011, at his home inMay 3, 2011, at his home in Del Mar, CA. He was 83 years young.

After a successful career in business (“Back in the days when the CEOs were mostly honest folks,” he used to clarify), he
retired to the San Diego area in 1988 with his wife, Pat, to kick back and enjoy life.

Unfortunately, Pat died less than three years later of colon cancer. He always said that one of his few regrets was that he didn’t retire earlier so that they could have shared more of life’s wonderful experiences together.

Dave became a part-time resident of Mt. Shasta in 1996. He enjoyed the friendly people and marveled at the beautiful
scenery. But he especially took pleasure in the challenging golf and bridge games, as well as dinners with his Mt. Shasta friends.

Dave’s family always remained the center of his life, and after Pat’s death he handled both the matriarchal and patriarchal duties in his family of four daughters and an everincreasing tribe of grandchildren. One of his solutions to ensuring quality togetherness time was to plan, organize, and host family vacations, which were held at least every other year. While managing the endless details for these events, he could never have imagined the priceless and lasting gift of
memories he created for his family.

His loved ones describe Dave as a man of exceptional intelligence, spirit, and heart, and he will be sorely missed by his children Lynn (husband Charlie) Russell, Lori (husband John) Harch, Leslie (husband Jack) Rants, and Caryn (husband Jeff)
Crago, as well as his grandchildren, greatgrandchildren, sister Ruth (and husband Bert) Smith, brother George Kimball, and
many friends.

Funeral services were conducted in San Diego on May 7, 2011, and memorial contributions may be made to the charity of
your choice. What would be most meaningful to Dave, however, would be to know that at least one person who reads this
remembrance would commit to setting aside a time each year to spend with his or her family, doing something fun and keeping those family ties strong.
