Many people knew Kim for his servant’s heart and caring for his community through the volunteer fire service that he served from the time he was 16 until just weeks before his death. His passion was helping people whether it was running into a burning building, tending at a wreck, or just holding someone’s hand waiting on an ambulance to arrive. He was very compassionate. He never did anything to get a pat on the back or praise but for patient care and the betterment of the community.
