Friends and Neighbors: Les Reemts' planned short stay in Kimball has lasted over 50 years


Tonia Copeland

Les Reemts came to Kimball in the 1960s and only planned to stay a short time. He has been here even since.

Les Reemts built a life in Kimball in a somewhat accidental way.

He completed pharmaceutical college in Scottsbluff, where he worked for nearly two years before he moved with his wife, Beverly, to Colorado.

"We always liked Colorado and we snooped around down there," Les said.

Colorado was where they really wanted to be, and he said and they would have stayed in that state - except the cost of living was too high.

"It was tough trying to live on what they were paying. We liked the town; we liked the job; we liked the store, but you have to have enough money to feed your family," he said.
