Fredric "Fritz" E. Kimball

March 27, 1947 — June 24, 2024

Oshkosh

Fredric “Fritz” E. Kimball, age 77, of Oshkosh, passed away on Monday, June 24, 2024. Fritz was born in Wausau on March 27, 1947 to the late Fred and Dorothy (Clark) Kimball. Fritz was united in marriage to Paulette “Polly” Piehl on March 27, 1971 at St. Michael’s Church of Wausau and together raised three sons.

Fritz's life was one marked by dedication and service. He proudly served in the United States Navy as a Seabee in both Antarctica and Vietnam. 

He was actively engaged in his community, serving the Millers Bay Neighborhood Association, and his Parish Council at Most Blessed Sacrament.

Always ready for an adventure, Fritz enjoyed exploring the state on scenic drives and finding off the beaten path curiosities. Fritz was active in scouting with his three children leading to a lifelong love of camping. He especially treasured sharing summers with his sons and grandsons camping, hiking, and fishing. 

He loved animals, both pets and wildlife, and enjoyed feeding the birds and squirrels followed by afternoon naps with a cat on his lap. Few things made him happier than a long afternoon grilling, a passion he honed throughout his life. His sense of humor was unmatched and brought joy and laughter to all those around him.

Fritz is survived by his wife, Polly Kimball; sons, Paul (Sarah) Kimball, Eden Prairie, MN, Scott (Melanie) Kimball, Milwaukee, WI, and Adam Kimball, Oshkosh, WI; grandchildren, Aidan and Connor of Eden Prairie, MN; brother David (Kathleen) Kimball, Arbor Vitae, WI; sister-in-law, Mary Kimball, Wausau, WI. He is further survived by nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Fritz was preceded in death by his brother Jim, mother-and-father-in-law, and sisters-and-brothers-in-law.

A Mass of Christian Burial officiated by Fr. Jerome Pastors will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 29, 2024, at Most Blessed Sacrament Parish, St. Peter site, 435 High Ave. Visitation will be held at the church from 9:00 a.m. until the time of Mass.
