Mr Stimpson was one of my high school teachers at Hirsch High School in Chicago from 1970 to 1974. He was an excellent role model , displayed class, and had a passion for training boys to be men. May he rest in peace and God bless the Stimpson family.

It's safe to say that I am speaking for our entire Hirsch Hirsch School 1973 Chicago City, and Illinois State High School Basketball teammates.

Stimp taught us how to win in style and play with class. He taught us how to win in the game of basketball , which transitioned to how to win in the game of life.

Stimp loved to teach the game of basketball while allowing us to go out and play the game. Practice was brutally fun. His leadership on the bench transition to out collective leadership on the court.

Thank you Coach Stimp for your patience until we developed into a noteworthy Championship Team.
