I didn't know about Kim's passing.  He was a great guy.  Does anyone have any details?  I don't like hearing about those who aren't with us anymore...

Kim and I were "band geeks" together. We used to drive Mr. Young crazy with our squeaking clarinets. Loved hanging out with him- kept me laughing. Heard of his passing  from Ron Giles at one of our earlier reunions. Shame. Still think of him from time to time.

Yes, I heard about it at the same reunion . . . pictures of those who had passed were displayed and I believe that is where I heard more about his passing. Hard to believe so many classmastes have left this earth at such a young age, at least I still consider myself young. I come back to earth when my wife tells me to look in the mirror!

Kim was one of my life long friends growing up in the old Yalecrest Ward. Kim was always trouble by his home life with a father that was hard to understand and get close to. After graduating from East, Kim tried a mission but was not cut out for that kind of work.  He later join the Army National Guard and seemed to do well in that structured invironment.  I lost contact with him after a few years because he had a hard time with the church standards and didn't seek me out as a friend.  He eventually married a real nice girl and had a boy with her.  Kim never got over his child hood problems and was tormented by things that he had done "wrong."  He tragically took his own life twenty or thirty years ago. I have met his wife and she has nothing but good to say about him.  Kim was like a brother to me and I have missed his quick and querky wit as well as his friendship.  He loved East as we all do.

Thanks Ron for telling us more about Kim's life, I didn't know him well because I was in the brass section and left the ochestra & band when my audition went well with Loraine Bowman. I do remember having fun with all you guys 50 years (hard to believe it has been that long) ago. I played the french horn after trumpet and baratone in Junion High and was just too busy to take all three classes. I know others were able to handle it but working almost full time in High School and trying to fly at the same time kept me busy. Plus, I really had to study in Ms. Tryfon;s class, someday, I will have to tell you about what happened in her class. I am sure he has resolved all of those issues out with his parents now that he is in a more foregiving place.

     Thank you Ron for sharing that about Kim, it just makes me feel blessed that I grew up with the parents that I had!  That was heartbreaking to hear about his family life, I had no idea.  See you in August!

So sad!  I have lots of memories of Kim and his sister Kirstin and spent  time in their home.  He is missed by many I am sure!

Kim was a great guy and great friend. We double dated a few times which resulted in a lot of laughter and lasting memories.
