About

The late C.R. was a man of many varied accomplishments. A graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City with a Juris Doctor [1934], he was known as "the most powerful man in state government, except for the governor," when he served as Executive Assistant to Arizona Governor John R. Williams [1967-1975]. C.R. was a test pilot for the predecessor to North American Rockwell, and was an internationally-recognized corporate lawyer, financer, rancher and political anchor man." He was known to have a keen, analytical mind, sharp intellect, and complete confidence in his decision-making capabilities.

C.R. and Kay met while they were students at the University of Missouri. Kay was an accomplished ice skater, and became a renowned world figure skater. Both C.R. and Kay were fluent in Spanish, and she traveled with him on his assignments to Latin and South America.

The Krimmingers’ were passionate about helping people and supporting education, particularly for those who were less fortunate. As long-time residents of Arizona, they chose to support the three state universities, and their alma mater through their estate.
