KIMBALL, Theodore
“Ted” (Age 75)

Born in Portland, Oregon to Vida and Oliver Kimball on August 10, 1937, Ted passed away peacefully after battling his second bout with cancer on September 30, 2012 in Spokane, Washington.

Ted was raised on Flathead Lake near Rollins, Montana earning the Eagle Scout award and falling in love with athletics.

He excelled in pole vault, javelin, football, and golf.

He also loved bowling, scuba diving, swimming, snow and water skiing, cycling and hiking.

Upon receiving an honorable discharge from the U.S Army, Ted earned his Bachelor’s Degree in accounting from Whitworth College and spent most of his career working at Kaiser Aluminum Mead Works.

His biggest joy of all though, was travel.

He visited six of seven continents and was planning his second trip to Australia.
He is survived by his children, Darron (Carmelita) Kimball of Graham, WA, Craig Kimball of Spokane, WA and Dayna (Dan) Furber of Shelby Township, Michigan; his grandchildren, Kendra, Kellie and Davis Kimball of Graham, WA and Makenzie and Creighton Furber of Shelby Township, Michigan; sister Gail (Sonny) Herreid of Polson, Montana.

He was preceded in death by his mother and father, and older brother Jim.

The family would like to thank Evelyn, Lynda and Francine.

Words can’t thank you enough.

To his neighbors and friends, THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your help and prayers.

To the staff at Touchmark and St. Luke’s - Thank you for giving Ted such wonderful care.

A celebration of his life will be held at Knights of Columbus, 302 E. Boone Ave., Spokane, WA, Tuesday, October 9, 2012, 2:00 pm.
