Kim was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. His kind eyes and smile made you smile too. A jack of all trades, Kim had a brilliant mind and was a master of mechanics. He was a man who worked with his hands, always fixing and building things. He was the one you’d call when you had any questions. Gregarious by nature, Kim loved to spend time with friends, whether it was playing cards, riding around town, or just hanging by the garage. He enjoyed weekends in Atlantic city, cooking for his wife, watching old western movies, and face-timing with his granddaughter. The King of dad jokes, he always kept things light-hearted and easygoing. A caring and giving man, Kim was loved by so many and will forever remain in our hearts. We love you Kim.
