Kim had a passion for cars and racing. He was a member of the Barons Car Club. He had a 1968 SS Chevelle 396 that was his pride and joy. In his younger years you could find him winning drag races in his Chevelle on a stretch of road down by the Lindon City landfill. Kim also raced once at the Bonneville Speedway. Later in life he was well known for his bright yellow 1973 GMC step side pickup. Getting his truck dirty always brought a smile to his face. He frequently participated in local mud bogging and tractor pull events. If he wasn’t drag racing or mud bogging, you could find him down at the sand dunes with his custom-built dune buggy. Kim had an undying love for anything outdoors. Hunting, camping, fishing, water skiing, and off-roading were things that he enjoyed doing with his family and friends.
Kim started his career in construction as a union laborer at Utah Local 295. He worked on multiple power plants, water and train tunnels, and road construction throughout the State of Utah. Kim also worked on many local landmark buildings. Schools, office buildings, and rebuilding the blast furnace at Geneva Steel were some of the many structures he worked on. After over a decade in the union, he became a carpenter and cement mason. Eventually, he owned his own footing and flat work company…. Sunshine Concrete.
Kim had a very outgoing personality. He was very sociable, and he loved getting to know new people. He always had the best interests of others at heart. There was never a time that he would not help someone who was in need if he was able to do so. Kim always had the best intentions even though at times he didn’t make the best choices. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.
Memorial services will be held Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. in the Wing Mortuary Chapel located at 118 East Main St in Lehi, Utah. Ashes for Kim will be spread in the Pacific Ocean at a later date. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.olpinmortuary.com.
