Kimbol graduated as Valedictorian from Minidoka High School in 1992. He attended CSI for 1 yr. and served a 2 yr. mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Hamburg, Germany from 1993-1995. He then attended and graduated from Utah State with a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering. In 1999 he accepted a job with the Idaho Transportation Dept. and spent the next 19 years working for the people of Idaho, finishing up his career as Chief Engineer for the State.
Kimbol loved motorcycles and fast cars. He also loved spending time with family going camping, working around the house, and watching movies. Kimbol was always rock solid, confident, and calm. He was thoughtful and a great leader. He was trustworthy and dependable and always worked hard. He was kind to all he came in contact with. Kimbol loved his country and was proud to be the grandson of two WWII Veterans. He was always willing to spend time to help his family, fellow employees, and church members. He will be sorely missed!
Kimbol’s wife and children would like to express their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Ondrej Choutka and his neurosurgery team at St. Alphonsus, Finding Home and Horizon Home Health Hospice teams, their extended ITD family throughout the state of Idaho, their LDS Summerset Ward family, and especially to both of their Allen and Christensen extended families for all of the excellent, heartfelt, and dedicated service they have provided. We couldn’t have done it without you!
