Crozier Rodney Kimball 1910 ~ 2007 Crozier Rodney Kimball, age 96 of Provo, UT passed away on Sat., Jan. 13, 2007 at the Charleston Assisted Living Center in Cedar Hills, UT. He was born in St. David, Arizona on February 13, 1910 to Crozier and Mary Lenora Roberts Kimball. He graduated from Jordan High School in 1929. Rod served a two and one-half year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Germany. He married LeNeve Martin on Jan. 2, 1934 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They were loving and devoted companions and worked side by side for over 60 years in raising their family and serving others. He was an active member of the Church and served in many capacities including Bishop, High Councilor, Patriarch, Temple worker, and with his wife served missions in Nauvoo, Illinois and Washington, DC. He received his bachelors and masters degrees from BYU and worked there as the athletic trainer for almost 40 years. His occupation was to care for athletes in treating and preventing injuries but his real interest and passion was in helping young men and others learn from and respond to life's lessons in a way that would bring growth and real happiness into their lives. In his professional and personal life he was truly a teacher, healer, minister and counselor and he was happiest when he was serving other people. He was a great father and enjoyed being with and surrounded by his family. His beloved wife LeNeve died on August 23, 1996. Rod married Florence Moulton Anderson for time in the St. George Temple on April 6, 1999. She was a loving, caring, and devoted companion. They took care of one another in the twilight years of their lives until Florence passed away on December 14, 2006. Both the Kimball and Anderson families were blessed through their association.
