Gerald Wayne Kimball December 12, 1939 - December 25, 2016

Wayne Kimball passed away after a long illness at St. Charles Hospital on Christmas Day. His wife Carol was at his side. He was 77.

Born in Eugene, Oregon, Wayne attended Springfield High School. He graduated from the University of Oregon in 1961 with a BA in Chemistry. He later completed Masters Degrees in Urban and Regional Planning and Public Administration.

After graduation, he was commissioned in the U.S. Army. Colonel Kimball's 27-year career included combat service in Vietnam where he was awarded the Bronze Star and the Air Medal. He graduated from the Special Warfare School in 1961, and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, graduating on the Commandant's List in 1974. His last 10 years of service were devoted to the creation of Army Cadet Command, and he retired as the first National President of High School ROTC. He was awarded the Legion of Merit.

The Kimballs retired to Sisters in 1992. They attended Calvary Chapel. Wayne served on the Sisters Planning Commission, and was a member of the Reserve Officer's Association. He was active with the Boy Scouts and the elementary school reading program START.

He is survived by his wife, Carol; son Daniel and daughter Kathy.

There will not be a local service; he will be buried with military honors at Willamette National Cemetery near Portland.

Contributions may be made to the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire Department.
