On Sunday, April 2, 2017, Kim Robert Kisyel passed away suddenly at the age of 63 years. Kim was born on November 14, 1953 in Vancouver, Washington.
As a young man, Kim served with the Navy where he received mechanics training. While living in Kamloops he operated his own successful business, “Low Cost Truck & Trailer”. In 1990, employment with Precision Mechanical brought him to the Elk Valley where Kim worked until 2008. At the time of his death, Kim was a heavy-duty mechanic for SMS.
A Harley enthusiast, Kim anticipated the warm weather months – the signal that meant it was time to bring out his bike so he could begin enjoying long rides, cruising the highways. Kim loved the simple things in life …. Listening to CBC radio (tuned in every day, all day!), his favorite companions; his cats Tequito, Optimus and Chopper, and a nice, cold Kokanee beer at the end of his day.
A Celebration of Life will be held in Kamloops this summer.
Kim is survived by his children, Kazden Michael Kisyel and Kianna Theresa Kisyel, their mother and his former wife, Kim Elise Kisyel, and his sister Julie (Vern) Pirang as well as his beloved cats Tequito, Optimus and Chopper. He was predeceased by his parents Lorna and Mike Kisyel.
In recognition of Kim’s love for animals, should friends so desire, donations may be made to your local S.P.C.A.
