Donald's Tribute Wall

Tributes (5):

  • My sincere condolences to all of the Kimball
    Families. It was special occasions that I would have the opportunity to see how much he loved his family as they loved him.

  • We will dearly miss our neighbor and friend who we have known since moving to Prescott in 1974., Living across the street was a blessing for us and our kids and we always knew if we needed anything we could count on Don and the entire family. We have many fond memories and will miss seeing him outside to just chit chat. With love and friendship to you all.

  • We met Don at our daughters wedding to Michael (Jenny) nine years ago. We will remember his great love of the Packers, his laughter, his good stories. Caleb would always come back from grandpa Dons with something exciting toy of his Dads that Grandpa gave him. He was a special man. Great sense of humor.

  • I as well as my family lost a very good friend, when Don said goodbye and went home. I will Miss you Don!
