He recently received his temple endowments in the Payson, Utah Temple. Kim Valiantly fought esophageal cancer for four years. During these four years, Kim was given many tests and trials. Through those tests and trials, our Father in Heaven prepared him to return home. It was through his relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ that Kim accomplished each of those tests and trials. He faced them with faith and a smile on his face. Kim's greatest joy in life was his children and he loved them fiercely. He loved spending time outdoors with his family.
