It is with great sadness that Ministry and Professional Leadership informs you of the death of the Reverend Richard G. Kimball. He died Saturday, June 23, 2007 at the age of 72.
Reverend Kimball was born August 18, 1934. He received a Bachelor of Arts from Tufts University, a Master of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School and a Master of Education from Boston University.
Mr. Kimball was fellowshipped in May 1959, and ordained in June 1959 at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Fitchburg, Massachusetts. He served congregations in Hingham, Westborough, Somerville, Billerica, Fitchburg, Woburn, Boston, West Roxbury and Essex, all in Massachusetts. He also served the Stockport Unitarian Church in Stockport, England from 1960 to 1961. He was named Minister Emeritus by Theodore Parker UU Church in West Roxbury in 1985 and by the First Universalist Church of Essex in 2004.
Active in both denominational and community affairs, he was a member of the Unitarian Universalist Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Concerns Committee, the Religious Arts Guild, the Interfaith Committee, the Visiting Nurses Association, the Aids Action Committee and many other social service organizations. A gifted teacher, he was an instructor of Psychology at Bunker Hill Community College, Mass. Bay Community College, Newbury College and the Berklee School of Music.
His wife, Deirdre Kimball, and son Jordan Kimball, who is currently living in Guinea, West Africa, working with Action Against Hunger, survive Richard.
