He was born March 24, 1954, in Lewiston to Robert (Bud) Benedict and Helen Joyce Matson Benedict.
Kim graduated from Anatone High School in 1972 and attended Washington State University.
Kim worked as an operating engineer since 1974 throughout the Western United States, primarily in the Northwest. He was a proud member of the International Union of Operating Engineers, Local No. 370. He respectfully referred to himself as a "dirt herder." He was well known by his union brothers and sisters as "Kimbo."
The Blue Mountains outside of Anatone and the beloved family cabin known as the Comb's Place held a special place in Kim's heart. He spent many hours there, riding horse, tending cattle, deer and elk hunting and special family events. He was an avid golfer and loved playing with the boys. He was a member of the Hells Canyon Eagles, enjoyed dancing and karaoke and was proud of his native Alaskan heritage.
He was preceded in death by his father, Robert (Bud) Benedict.
