Dear Family and Friends,
I am so sorry to hear of Kim's passing. As a long time colleague at HSC, I had the chance to get to know Kim [and his family] beyond the context of the workplace. Just a great gent to be around. We shared lots of laughs and conversation. Kim always took time to say Hi and share the goings of the day. He was really creative in managing his team and the work about campus. He would start with, "hey, did you see the area over by the sports field", and then follow with, "know what we did..." and then take me through the work plan/solution :) I learned so much from Kim and will be forever grateful for that. Kim was such an asset to HSC, both at campus and beyond. I recall a number of times Kim brought prospective families to the college from connections/conversations he would have during his personal time away from work. He was always engaged in HSC's purpose and promise. We regularly spoke of first impressions/presence when arriving at campus and how important is was to have a positive experience prior to getting the the front door. He was absolutely on point and delivered on that promise. Our grounds and field spaces were the envy of all institutions in Hamilton and beyond. He took great pride in his work and contribution to the College. Most importantly he took great pride in his family. It was always fun to hear how the 'kids' were doing [even when they were currently working at campus:)) ]. He would be smiling throughout as his love and caring for his family shone through.
I am sadden by his passing and will miss him.
My deepest sympathies,
