Ki Chun Kim was born March, 28, 1928, in Chungnam, Korea. He and his wife moved to the United States in 1986 and resided in Abilene, TX since that time. Ki had a strong Christian faith and was a believer in Jesus Christ. He was a member of International Baptist Church where he grew in his faith and enjoyed fellowship with his friends. Ki spent a lot of his time gardening with his wife and fishing. There was no doubt about the love he had for his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
