Kim was an owner and operator of his own truck for over 37 years and also dedicated many hours at the Vermilion County Speedway, making sure the grounds were clean, mowed and ready to go, and doing whatever needed to be done.

He was a big fan of the White Sox and the Bears.

Kim married Donna Henderson on Oct. 6, 1984, in Westville, and she survives.
