LAKE CLARKE SHORES, Fla. (AP) - James H. Kimberly, a sportsman, socialite and Kleenex heir, has died after a long bout with cancer. He was 86.

Kimberly lived with five dogs, four cats and 12 squirrels in his home here, where he died Saturday. He moved to Lake Clarke Shores after selling his Palm Beach mansion to King Hussein of Jordan.

The grandson of one of four founders of the Kimberly-Clark Corp., he sold his $50 million interest in the tissue company after working there for 37 years to "live quietly and feed my animals."

Kimberly retired seven years ago from the Palm Beach social scene after a highly publicized divorce from his third wife, Jacqueline Trezise, who was 42 years younger.
