Ivan Leroy Kimball Jr.
Orondo, Washington

Ivan “Bud” Leroy Kimball Jr., 83, of Orondo, WA passed away peacefully in his home of 53 years in Orondo on Monday, June 22, 2020.

Ivan was born on July 29, 1936 in Pateros, WA to Ivan Leroy Kimball Sr. and Dorothy Rae (Baumgardner) Kimball. He was raised and schooled in Brewster, WA and graduated from Brewster High School, with the class of 1954. He met and later married Michon “Toppy” Dundas on March 4, 1961 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. They made their home in Brewster until moving to make their permanent home in Orondo in 1967. Ivan took great pride in working in the family orchard and fruitstand. Ivan drove school bus for the Orondo School District for 31 years. Many of the kids that rode his bus remember his big hand reaching back and giving them a gentle squeeze on their knees or shoulders if they were misbehaving. He had a special place in his heart for every child that rode his bus. He was also a volunteer firefighter for the Orondo Fire Department #4 for over 30 years. He and Michon were also members of the Orondo Grange.

In his spare time, Ivan loved to work crossword puzzles and reading books. He especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Ivan was incredibly proud of his family and loved when anyone would visit.

Ivan is survived by his three children; Kathy Kimball (Jay King), East Wenatchee, Kelly (Stephanie) Kimball, West Seattle, WA, Kristy (Rod) Harris, East Wenatchee; his siblings, Naomi Griggs, Redmond, WA; Darlene (Stanley) Sheets, Brewster, WA, and Ron (Joy) Lewis, Dyer Hill, WA; Seven grandchildren, Cheyenne King, East Wenatchee, Audrey Kimball, West Seattle, Lauren Kimball, West Seattle, Taylor Karnes, Yelm, WA, Turner Harris, East Wenatchee, Tanner Harris, East Wenatchee, and Tyler Harris, Sacramento, CA; four great grandchildren, Nora Karnes, Ellie Karnes and Quinton Karnes all of Yelm, WA and ZuZu Harris, Sacramento, CA.; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ivan L. Kimball Sr. and Dorothy R. Lewis; two sisters, Delores Gillespie and Carol Woodbury; his wife, Michon L. “Toppy” Kimball and two infant children, Ivan Leroy Kimball III and Kimberly Ann Kimball.

Ivan “Bud” Leroy Kimball Jr. will be laid to rest next to his wife and infant children in the Pateros Cemetery on July 10, 2020 @ 11:00 am. A Celebration of Life is being planned for both Ivan & Michon when COVID-19 restrictions allow large gatherings. Please leave a memory for the family at

I rode on Ivan's school bus for seven years, what a treat! We could put stickers near the entryway of the bus and the whole area was covered in them. Also, when the teachers took on the 5th & 6th graders in softball, we would all backup whenever Ivan came to was like Barry Bonds stepping to the plate! :) He was such a wonderful man! I'm glad that our lives intersected for a while!
