Many summers were spent on Lake Onderdonk on his boat. He taught many to ski and kneeboard. He had an amazing gift for art, design, and imagination. Kim had the vision that became the beautiful family home. He was the type of person who would do anything to help others. Dedicated, hard-working, generous, devoted, and kind hearted. He gave 110% into any task at hand. He loved his grandchildren and their visits. Always asking how they were and what they were doing. His spirit lives on in all of them. He will forever be missed, but never forgotten! Kim is survived by his daughter Stacey B. Logsdon, sons Jason A. (Andrea) Bylsma and Ryan A. Bylsma. His grandchildren Alyssa, Kinley, and Sydney Logsdon, and Alexander Bylsma. By 2 brothers and 2 sisters, local Merelyn (David) Stewart and Steven (Karen) Bylsma, and countless nieces and nephews.
