SCOTT DAVID KIMMEL

Scott David Kimmel, born June 7, 1961 went home to be with the Lord, April 3, 2018 after a year long battle with esophageal cancer.

Scott packed a rich life into his 56 years. He was a coach and umpire for Redmond Little League, a member of Overlake Christian Church. He loved cycling, running, fly fishing, hiking, and skiing. His favorite place was the cabin he built with his family by Leavenworth. He was known for his dry, quick-witted humor, generosity, and leadership.

We will miss him and always remember the love, joy and the great memories we made together. He is survived by his wife, Shirley, father Melvin, sons Matthew (wife Tricia) Kimmel, and Blake Kimmel. His brothers and their spouses, Butch and Reva, Todd and Heidi, Tim and Becky. He was preceded in death by his mother Marilyn Kimmel.
