Michael James McKim
Jul. 8, 1945 - Feb. 12, 2014
Resident of Concord
Michael passed away peacefully at home after a courageous, lifelong, intermittent battle with cancer. Michael McKim, son of the late James and Betty McKim, was born in Los Angeles, raised in Stockton, and graduated from Lincoln High School in 1963.
Thereafter, he joined the Naval Reserves and studied at Chico State before transferring to Sacramento State and graduating with a Bachelor's in Police Sciences in 1968. He served two years active duty on the East Coast and, in 1971, began his career as a Postal Inspector in Rhode Island. Two years later he relocated to the Bay Area and continued his career until his retirement in 1996.
At the age of 30, Michael had beat Hodgkin's Disease and continued to live his next 38 years enjoying a satisfying career as a P.I. with the San Francisco Division as well as many years of retirement, enjoying life in the Bay Area along with his family.
Mike is survived by his loving wife, Lorraine McKim and her daughter, Lauren Leonard; daughter Christine (McKim) Bollinger and her husband, Jason, and Mike's (Papa's) grandson's, Gentry and Rylan Bollinger of Boise, Idaho. He is also survived by his dear sister, Kathleen El Maaroufi and his nephews, Karim and Omar El Maaroufi of Washington D.C.
Dad, life has forever changed, your love and
remembrance will live on in our hearts.
Services were private.
