    The world lost one of the most sweet and kind people that I’ve ever known…. The only thing that helps me with his death is knowing that he is in heaven watching over us as a guardian angel. We loved him and will never forget our friend and brother. Rest In Peace buddy

    I am stunned. I talked with him a couple of weeks ago on the phone. We were frat brothers at MTSU. I was going to talk with some people down this way about taking him duck hunting. We were going to hook up in September at a friend’s son’s wedding. Then I read where he passed away. He was a good dude. He had a funny sense of humor like mine. That is why we got along so well. He will be missed. RIP brother. AEKDB Jeff McGuire.

    Although I had not talked to Kim since we were both in high school, I remember him fondly. He used to ride with us to church….. always had to sit by the window so he could stick his head out and blow dry his hair LOL !!! I remember him as fun to be around and always with a smile on his face. Rest in Peace Kim…. Strike, flame, blow, “don’t say I never gave you nu-thin” …

    Oh my gosh…this is shocking…he was always so nice to me when I signed in for Monday night CR at Longhollow. He was having BACK problems and I talked with him about it once as I have similar pains. He was having surgery and, now, he’s gone? RIP Kim. Prayers to all who have known and loved him throughout his life. ?

    You will be missed my friend! A kind, gentle encouraging soul. Always fun and mischievous (in a good way). Willing to help anyone in need! Myself and anyone who has known you are surely sad of your passing but can only smile when thinking of you and your big heart, big smile and your clever, funny, quirky personality!

    I know you loved your kids, grandson and family deeply as you spoke of them often and were so proud of them. As one of your friends, I know anyone you called a friend felt that love too.

    Prayers for your family and those left behind.
    Love ya brother!
    Until we meet again!

    I was in choir with Kim for several years at Cornerstone Church. He was a great guy, always friendly and willing to help someone else in need. My heartfelt prayers go out to the family especially his children. Rest in peace, Kim. You are now in the ultimate place, Heaven, with our Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus. I know you would not come back here for anything. I’m so thankful that I will see you again one day!

    My condolences to the West family. I met Kim at Cornerstone church. He was loved by many. Friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand. He was funny too and made me laugh at his goofy jokes and posts!! Prayers for God’s peace and comfort during this difficult time ❤️

    The first thing that comes to mind about Kim was his big friendly smile. I loved to talk to him and hear his stories of family, everyday life and his passion for the Lord. He always ended with a “love you brother,” and he meant it every single time. When I talked to him before surgery he wasn’t nervous, just happy that the pain would be over. I can honestly say that I am a better person having known him. Kim, love ya brother! See you in a better place and you can show me around.

    I remember Kim as a man with a great sense of humor and a large and caring heart for others. He loved his family, friends and community. I wish we had seen each other more over the years. He will certainly be missed by all who knew him. Rest in Peace Kim. AEKDB

    Kim was on of the funniest men I know. You never knew, if he was being funny or actually meant what he said at times. I had just seen him at church a couple of weeks before and I miss seeing him now.

    RIP Kim, you will be miissed but I know there’s no more pain or struggles for you and your with our God whom you loved so dearly! Until we meet again! Xoxoxo

    I’m still in shock and so sad. I went to High School and College with Kim and recently reconnected with him. I just hate that he is gone way to soon. Love and miss you Kim.
