Dr. Cecil Harry Kimball


Dr. Cecil Harry Kimball, 99, a resident of Cleveland, passed away Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018, at a local assisted-living facility.

Born in Greenfield, Mass., he was a veteran of the United States Army, serving in both World War II and the Korean War. He was honorably discharged with the rank of major.  While on active duty, he returned to school and finished his medical degree from the University of Vermont.  He came to Cleveland in the late 1950s, after his last assignment at an Armed Forces Hospital in Orleans, France, and established his medical practice, becoming the community's first radiologist.  He retired from his medical practice in 1992.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Harry Eugene Kimball and Edna Kendall Kimball;  his spouse of 52 years, Rosalie Marjorie Kimball; two children: Carolyn Helen Kimball and Dawn Marie Kimball; and brothers: Donald Stanley Graham, Stuart Eugene Kimball, Delbert Murray Kimball, and Malcolm Kimball.

He is survived by a daughter, Peggy Huffman (Jerry) of Canton, Ga.; sons: Paul (Dawn) and John (Susanne) Kimball, all of Cleveland; grandchildren: Jerry (Pam) Huffman, Dr. Kim (Quintin) Huffman, Melissa Huffman, Aaron (Faith) Dow, Jennifer Kimball, Jessica (Blake) Wolfenden, Ben (Melissa) Kimball, Allyson Kimball, and Anna Kimball; and numerous great- and great-great-grandchildren.

Funeral arrangements will be privately held at a later date.  The family is encouraging donations made to the international relief charity: Doctors Without Borders.
