Frank Kimball lost his three year battle with myelofibrosis on December 10. He died at home. Born in Albuquerque, NM, his Osage heritage was an influence and source of pride throughout his life. To the Osage, he is “Bald Eagle”.
He attended Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland. He was captain of the football team the year Landon won the state championship. He graduated from St. George’s School in Newport, Rhode Island and went on to Yale University where he graduated with a B.A. in Economics.
He had an adventurous career in the Foreign Service, first being posted in Peru. He subsequently served as Mission Director for U.S.AID with posts in Honduras, Bolivia, Bangladesh and Egypt. After retiring from the Foreign Service he was an international consultant and acted as Executive Director of a Presidential Commission for President George H. W. Bush.
Frank loved golfing at Harbour Town and gardening at Heritage Farm where he
served as President for six years. Frank took great pride in the farm’s support of Deep Well. He leaves behind his wife of 43 years, Rosemary Kimball, his “Wild Rose” and his children Raymond, Rebecca, William, Russell, Mark and Blair Robbins who entered his life three years ago and gave him much love and happiness.
He will be remembered for his keen wit, sense of humor, intelligence, handsomeness and, perhaps, most importantly, humanity. Frank had a true joy of life and will be greatly missed. However, one never dies who lives in the hearts of those they leave behind.
