Age 85

Robert “Bob” M. Kimball, age 85, of Ripon, WI passed away on Sunday, May 10, 2020 at Whispering Pines Nursing Home in Ripon.

Bob was born on March 28, 1935 in Laona, WI, the son of Lucille Kimball. He graduated from Laona High School and went on to serve our country in the U.S. Army as an 82nd Airborn Paratrooper and aerial photographer. In 1959, he married Caroline Salvinski in Fond du Lac, WI. Bob worked at Speed Queen in Ripon for 40 years and was a proud and active member of the United Steelworkers Local 1327. Bob lived his life to the fullest. He spent his time hunting and fishing. Bob traveled with his family in the early years and with his wife in the later years. The family cabin in the north woods was his favorite destination. He will be missed everyday.
