A beloved Sterling surgeon, the late Dr. Kimball loved flying and old warplanes. He generously gave Stearman and T-28 rides for local charities, performed acrobatics, and did flyovers for local patriotic functions. He gave Star Trek’s William Shatner a ride once, and would gladly fly over friends' farms and “buzz” their families. One of his greatest accomplishments was creating the St. Francis Fly-In which was held every year in June, for many years. His family teased him that he lived by the quote, “I’m not perfect, but I’m a pilot, and that’s almost the same thing.”
