I'm sorry to hear of Richard's passing, and that I won't be able to express my condolences and admiration for Richard in person to the Kimball family. I first met Richard when he did some surveying of some family property up by Navajo Lake. I later got to know him very well when I took surveying and engineering classes from him at SUU. It seems like every day I would listen to his lectures then after my other classes go back to his office to ask for additional help with the homework and in understanding the things he taught. He was one of the most patient people I have ever met. He never expressed exasperation at me coming back for help again and again and again. From elementary through graduate school there is no teacher or professor that I give more credit to than Professor Kimball for helping me become and Engineer and giving me the education I needed for my chosen profession.
