Obituary for Larry Kimball Sr.

Larry  Kimball  Sr.
Larry Lloyd Kimball, Sr, 76, died Sunday, March 25th at Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He was born on November 4, 1941 in Pocatello, Idaho to Lloyd and Eldoris (Hunter) Kimball. He grew up in the Blackfoot, ID area. As a young man he rode saddle broncs in rodeos around the Idaho circuit, even considering turning professional at one point. He joined the Air Force in 1966, serving in Vietnam and several places in the USA, including 14 years at the Grand Forks AB in North Dakota. He started as an aircraft mechanic and by the time he was done, he was working in an office at GFAB, in charge of a $90 million dollar budget. He retired in 1990, having completed 24 years. In 1963 he married Esther Fernald, and with her welcomed Sheila, Larry Jr, and Sean into their family. In 1997, he married Christy Howitz, at her home in Larimore, ND. When he married her, he gained another 5 children, all of whom he welcomed into his loving arms. As grandchildren came along, he was excited for each and every one of them. In the last few years he became a great-grandfather and could not believe his good fortune. He was a man who lived life to its fullest, who loved to help people who needed it, who would give his shirt off his back, who loved his entire family fiercely, and who impacted lives in ways we will never know. Surviving him are his beloved wife, Christy; his children, Sheila Cotter, Milo, ME; Larry Kimball Jr, Surprise, AZ; Sean Kimball, Dyersburg, TN; Rebecca (Wayne) Waege, Grand Forks, ND; Kathryn Rice, Baton Rouge, LA; Sarah (George) Dimeo, Beaverton, OR; Ben Rice, Sacramento, CA; and Heather (David) Owen, Smartsville, CA; 10 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren; siblings, Jeannie (Max) Olson, Idaho Falls, ID; Rocky (Linda) Kimball, Smithfield, UT, Debra (Terry) Adolfson, Boise, ID, and Dan (Angela) Kimball, Blackfoot, ID; many nieces and nephews; and friends too numerous to count. He was preceded in death by his parents.
A memorial service will be held at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, March 28th, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 816 E Clark Street, Vermillion, with a celebration of life party to follow at Bunyans in Vermillion.
Memorials may be directed to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
