  • Notes 
    • On the morning of November 10, 2016, Rick passed away peacefully at home. He was 66 years old. Richard "Rick" Wayne Kimball was born in Watertown, NY on June 21, 1950. He was the first of four children, born to Patricia and Wayne. An avid outdoorsman, many knew Rick to be out in the woods at a favorite hunting spot this time of year. Enjoyed with his son Anthony, his brother-in-law David, his Uncle Harold, Charlie, and many other good buddies over the years, hunting was a way of life for Rick. Times in the Southern Tier at camp, out West with Charlie, were some of his happiest.
      Rick often cherished holiday time and his sister Melanie's cooking and always looked forward to the Kimball-Warner family gatherings with all the cousins and grandchildren each year. Whether at his grandson Taylib's football or baseball games, his granddaughters' Kalista or McKenna's soccer, basketball, volleyball or softball outings, Rick cheered from the sidelines when life could allow. Right along with his love for his black labs and butterfingers, Rick was always a great storyteller. Hunting and fishing stories were of course his finest. There was an occasional story about a night or two of too much moonshine and Hank Williams, Jr, that was more often coupled with laughter than with tears. He was a loyal and steadfast friend to many.
      A devoted laborer all his life, Rick was always building or working on something. One of his proudest achievements was the home he built with wife Jaynee of 15 years, and his children Anthony and Angela, up on Wheat Hill in Boylston. Sundays were 'yard days' and as much as Tony and Angela moaned and groaned, those early days of learning to work hard and take pride in caring for something, stuck with them to this day. He was a man who always had a mind for business, from his first sports shop to his favorite saloon, and sustained throughout his life an incredible work ethic. His brother Michael said "He was the hardest working, toughest man I ever knew."
      Rick was preceded in death by: Mother Patricia Joy Warner-Kimball, Father Wayne Kimball, Lifelong friend Charlie Woodruff, Uncle John Kimball, Uncle Ross Kimball, Uncle Horace Kimball, Aunt Judith Kimball, Grandmother Thelma Warner, Aunts Rose, Mamie and Bessie Warner, Uncles Fred and Jack Warner, and many other close friends that stood by Rick and his family throughout the years.
      Rick is survived by: Son Anthony Kimball and daughter-in-law Angela, Daughter Angela Kimball-Moonan, grandchildren Taylib and Kalista Kimball, granddaughter McKenna Moonan, sister Kathy Plummer and brother-in-law Ronald, brother Michael Kimball and sister-in-law Penny, sister Melanie Barber and brother-in-law Joe, ex-spouse Jaynee Bontomase, many loving nieces and nephews, cousins, close friends.
      A special thanks to Mr. Jim Ridgeway for his loving support, friendship and sincere care for Rick and Rick's family over the years and particularly in these final months and days.
