Beloved husband of Jane and adored father of Stephanie (Matthew) and Daniel (Izabella), and dear Papa to Penelope. Predeceased by his parents Duke and Bett; parents in law Bill and Alice Grannen; siblings Doug, Biff (Dale), Larry, Linda, Nick; cousin Ted, and dear friend Sheena. Beloved brother of Judie (Bash) Mike (Pat), Jill (Len) Don (Wendy), Terry (Janet), and Betty Jane. Brother in law of Arlene, Ann, Jim, Michael and Michele (William). Uncle Kim (aka Uncle Butts) to over 20 nieces and nephews. Family and dear friend of Bill and Kathy, Ron, Jake and Irene, and many others.
Kim meant the world to many people. He was kind, wise, and funny. He would do anything for his family and friends. He truly enjoyed life, lived it to the fullest, and always saw the bright side. He never complained or let anything get him down. He held no grudges and saw the best in everyone. He loved good food, good music, good fun, and good times shared with good friends. An avid reader and Civil War buff, Kim enjoyed touring battlefields with his family and friends, traveling, gardening, cooking, sports, and sweets. A hard worker, a straight shooter, and a true gentleman. He will be greatly missed, warmly remembered, and forever in our hearts.
Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held in the spring. Donations can be made in Kim’s memory to Parkinson Society Southwestern Ontario psso.ca.
