Richard Kimball 1930 - 2015

Richard A. Kimball Jr., of Lincoln, Massachusetts and Leadbetter Island, Maine, formerly of New York, died on April 15 in Massachusetts. He was 85. The cause was Parkinson's disease, his family said. Mr. Kimball was born in New York City in 1930, and grew up in Manhasset, Long Island. He was the son of Richard A. Kimball, an architect, and Josephine Dodge Kimball. After graduating from Brooks School and Yale University, he served in the U.S. Army for the 82nd Airborne before attending Yale Law School. He practiced law in New York as a partner of Hughes, Hubbard and Reed. An ardent Whiffenpoof, an a capella group at Yale, he was also passionate about Land Conservation, serving for years on the Board of the Dutchess Land Conservancy in Millbrook, NY, where he retired. He is survived by his wife, Hopeton, three children, George Kimball, Sam Kimball and Sylvia Kimball Perry, and eight grand children. Burial will be private. Memorial donations may be made to the Dutchess Land Conservancy, P.O. Box 138, Millbrook, NY 12545.
