Kim Wheeling, 1951 ~ 2010

Kim Wheeling passed away on Sept. 7, 2010, after a nine-month struggle with brain cancer. He is terribly missed by his wife of 25 years, Andrea, his son Kyle, his daughter, Corryn, and granddaughter, Zoey, and his many friends and family.

He is remembered most for his kind, gentle, and humorous nature.

Kim was born Oct. 19, 1951. He graduated from the University of California Santa Cruz with a degree in theoretical physics, but later decided on jewelry as a trade. While living with his family in Castle Valley, Utah, and later, in Heber, Utah, he created many wedding sets and fine jewelry for his friends and acquaintances in Moab as well as other places around the world, and a big part of Kim shines everyday through his stunning creations.

His favorite things to do were camping in the southeastern Utah canyon country, and downhill skiing on a Utah powder day!

He was a very loving father and husband and good friend. He leaves us feeling a big hole, but we know that he is on another journey, one in which our paths will meet once again.
