Noah Kimball, Bubbles, Obituary
Noah “Bubbles” Allen Kimball, 14, of Brandon, died Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2020, from injuries sustained in a vehicle accident in Sioux Falls.
Private family services and a public candlelight vigil were both held Sunday, Sept. 27 at Celebrate Community Church in Brandon. Inurnment was in the Bluff View Cemetery in Vermillion.
Noah was born Jan. 4, 2006, in Vermillion, and was the first baby of the year in that community. Noah and his family moved to Brandon shortly after his birth, where he later attended Brandon Elementary, Brandon Valley Middle and High schools, where he was currently a freshman.
He was involved with Taekwondo for many years, taking classes at Hoover’s Martial Arts (now Circuit) in Brandon, where he achieved the rank of Second-Degree Black Belt. Through this experience, he learned courtesy, respect, honesty, integrity, self-discipline and self-control. He loved to read, and because of his giving heart, he donated his books after reading them to low-income area schools. He also recently parted ways with his Legos collection, not wanting to sell them, he gave those away as well.
Noah attended Celebrate Community Church for the past 13 to 14 years.
He had a great interest in helping his dad and brothers work on motorcycles and vehicles. He had big pride in a part-time job, from which he was able to pay for the 1986 Chevy truck he purchased and had named, “Sally.”
He is survived by his parents, Kerry (Adam) Hirsch and Brian (Alicia) Kimball; three brothers, Chris (Abby) Schmidt, David Kimball and Jordan Kimball; six step siblings, Shelby (Brandon), Layne (Sarah), Ryker, Destiny, Arianna and Navaya; two nephews, Renner and Deegan; aunts and uncles, Tara (Rick) Hinzman, Dan (Ann) Schmidt, Patrick (Deanna) Schmidt, Paul (Renae) Kimball, Brad Kimball, Karen (Cody) Hall; 12 cousins, Katie, Bella, Daniell, Tyler, Michael, Andrew, Harper, Karrah, Kyleah, Justin, Bryce and Kaitlyn; and his grandmother, Ranae Kimball.
He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Ken Schmidt and David Kimball, and grandmother, Mary K. Boggs.
A memorial fund has been established for Noah “Bubbles” Kimball at Service First Federal Credit Union on East 10th Street in Sioux Falls. Donations may be phoned in or checks may be made out to Lisa Nafziger or Kerry Hirsch with the memorial fund noted in the memo.
