Kenneth Wayne McKim was born on August 12, 1975 to Kenneth A. and Meta (McClure) McKim in Sheridan, Wyoming. Ken passed from this world to be in a better place on February 12, 2020 to be with his dad and the Lord. Ken, age 44, passed away in Casper, Wyoming of renal failure.

Ken left behind a beautiful daughter, Isabella; her mother, Brandee; his parents, Dennis and Meta Bowker; brothers, Kirby Roberts and Kelly McKim; sisters, Laurie McKim of Lake Havasu City and Deana McKim of California. His extended sister, Jodi (Wes) Saunders of Pine Haven, Wyo. and brother, Denny (Birdie) Bowker of Hot Springs, as well as aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. 

Ken spent his life in construction and oil fields in Wyoming and North Dakota. His favorite pass time was camping, fishing and more fishing. Ken loved the outdoors more than anything other than spending time with his daughter, taking her to father/daughter dances and teaching her to (you guessed it) fish. Music was his great passion growing up and being in a band with his friends in high school. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. 

In lieu of flowers the family has set up an educational fund to benefit his daughter. Memorials and condolences can be sent in care of Gillette Memorial Chapel, 210 W. 5th Street, Gillette, Wyo. 82716. Condolences may also be expressed at
