Kimball graduated from Lake Placid High School in 1965 and dreamed of a career in politics. In fulfillment of that dream, he was active in the North Elba Republican Committee, serving as its Chairman on several occasions, and he served as Chairman of the Board of Assessors for the Town of North Elba for over 35 years. He enjoyed his job immensely and took great pride in being able to help the residents of the Town of North Elba.

Outside of work he enjoyed spending time at his camp on Cameras Pond, playing with his dogs and reading newspapers. In his younger years, he enjoyed hunting with friends at Camp Avery. Kim also enjoyed reading and learning the law with his good friend, Jim Brooks.

He is also survived by two nephews, Gary Daby (and his wife Emily) of Bloomingdale and Fran Daby (and his wife Julia) of Lake Placid; two great nephews, Eben Daby of Lake Placid and Gary Daby III of Bloomingdale; and a great niece, Annabelle Corwin Gray of Lake Placid. He was predeceased by his mother, father and just last month his beloved brother, Gary Daby.
