In Memoriam

The Green Mountain Club mourns the passing of Kimball “Kim”
Simpson, who died peacefully at home in Westborough, MA on
December 15, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Kim was a long
time member of the Worcester Section. The full story of Kim is
presented in the Spring 2022 edition of the Long Trail News on page

Kim will be long remembered for his work to permanently protect
the Long Trail corridor. He served also as Chairman of the Midstate
Trail in Massachusetts (which runs the entire length of the state from
north to south) and worked tirelessly to protect and maintain that
trail as well. He is remembered in addition to his leadership for his
kind and generous spirit. We thank Kim and his wife Kate for their
decades of service to the Green Mountain Club.
