He was a one-off, a man of many parts. Kimber Wheelock - what a name!Like him, so cool! His languid gait as he approached through Edinburgh's crowded Festival streets, so slender yet such strength. The tan, of course, the softest shirts in the lovliest colours. A man of taste. Discerning in so many ways.A man of many talents, a director and teacher whose creative energy inspired students and audiences alike. And then,he knew the best places to eat and the places to avoid.He cooked the best lobster and made the most wicked Bloody Marys. So much! so glad we knew him!
We treasure his intellect, his incisive humour and his huge generosity. We love him and we will always miss him.

Kimber was the first professor I spoke with as an incoming freshman at URI in 1975. He influenced my career path in the arts in a positive, inspiring and even practical way. It was my good fortune to know him and may good memories of him bring peace and comfort to family. Susan Boyce

What a man! We met Kimber when we shared a theatre space at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in the 70s with his URI Theater Group. His cool, relaxed demeanour, his smile, his sense of humour, and his quiet professionalism made him stand out as someone you could learn from and whose company you could enjoy. Over 40 years later, none of those first impressions has changed. Kimber not only didn't suffer fools gladly, he didn't suffer them at all. On the other hand, when he saw talent and qualities in a person, his respect for him or her was unconditional. He was a man of principle, fiercely supportive of friends, and angered and frustrated by the lies and evasions of the political classes. He cared about people.
The more or less instantaneous friendship we formed with him has never weakened over the forty plus years since then, despite being on opposite sides of the Atlantic. Kimber was a real friend. Meeting him made a difference to our lives, introduced us to the real USA, and brought lots and lots of pleasure. We're missing him already and he'll never be forgotten by us and all our friends who met him here in Aberdeen. Sleep well, big man.
