  • Notes 
    • Ben W. Kimbell made his transition on May 23, 2011 at University of Colorado Hospital due to a brain stem stroke. He was born in Malta, Mont. on June 23, 1953, the first son of Ben and LaReta Kimbell.

      Ben graduated Mapleton High School in Denver as the valedictorian and went on to Brigham Young University with a full ride scholarship in mechanical engineering. After graduating college with a Masters Degree of Engineering Science in 1978 he moved his family to Fort Collins to begin his career at Hewlett Packard. After retiring from HP he went to work as a quality manager for a start-up company, Couragent, makers of the Flip Pal mobile scanner.

      Ben's purpose in life was to improve his and the lives of others, and he lived this every day with deep conviction. He was deeply committed to his church, Unity Church of Fort Collins where he led the YOU youth group.

      He was a very kind and loving man and always found the good in others. Ben lived a very full life travelling around the world with his wife and family on vacations and business trips.

      He is survived by his wife, Carol Kimbell; his five children and their spouses, Sari and Andrew Schauer, Ben and Kathy Kimbell, Cody and Janell Brassfield, Dana and Zach Holder and Bria and Nick Berger; his mother, LaReta Kimbell; his siblings, Bonna Burrows, Dorreta George, and Lonnie Kimbell; and his grandchildren, Tyler, Ryan and Katelyn Kimbell, Bryce, Clayton and Brynlee Brassfield.
