Kim was born deaf. His language was ASL. As he would say his language was in the air and pictures. He had a wonderful sense of humour and could be mischievous! He loved doing the models of old war planes and transport trucks and old cars. He was an amazing sketch artist! He loved snowmobiling with a passion! He loved to drive and sit by the water and feel the breeze on his face. Kim loved especially colourful flowers. His eyes would light up at their beauty!
