R.I.P., Dale Kimpton

I thought I would mention that Dale Kimpton, my private French horn teacher from either 4th or 5th grade until I graduated from high school, passed away last Wednesday. He also directed the Quincy Community Concert Band, but retired from that a number of years ago. When I was in junior high, he referred a beginning French horn to me for extra help over the summer, thus sending me my first student. Mr. Kimpton was always popular with his students, some of whom took to calling him "Coach" because of his teaching style. He was 76.
