Kevin William Sim

With heavy hearts, we announce the tragic death of Kevin William Sim, 21.

Born in Edmonton, Kevin grew up in the Riverbend community. He attended Earl Buxton Elementary, Riverbend Junior High, and Lillian Osborne High School. He played hockey from Pre-Novice through 3rd year Midget, with Knights of Columbus, SWAT, and Southwest Zone.

Kevin will be sorely missed by his parents Lily (Ng) and Stewart; older brother Brandon and younger brother Bradley; paternal grandparents Siew Hock and Yuet Ngo Sim; maternal grandmother Nancy Ng.

He leaves behind loving aunts and uncles: Bill and Karena Lee, Jeffrey and Shirley Yong, Chris and Susan Pang, Steven Sim and Lynn Tran, Raymond and Bonnie Ng, Mary Ng, Howard Ng, Hong Ng; and many dear cousins: Wilson Lee, Clement Lee, Jaqueline Lee, John and Tiffanie Phong, Shane Morris and Jannesa Yong- Morris, Jonathon Yong and Michelle Nguyen, Gordon Leung and Katie Wickland, Joshuah Leung and Elyse Kelba, Adam Maisonnette and Alexandra Leung, Jerome Pang, Jermain Pang, Alexia Pang, Vivian Sim, Ericka Sim, Johnathon Ng and Lan Phan, Melissa Ng, Jenny Ng, Lucas Phong, Cooper Phong, JJ Yong-Morris, Isaac Yong-Morris, Elena Ng; as well as countless close friends.

Kevin had a big heart; he was genuine, kind, and ever considerate. He loved to be around family and friends. With an infectious smile and ability to strike up a conversation with anyone, Kevin was cherished by many. His unique habits and antics were familiar and appreciated by all who knew him. A community is heartbroken and will forever remember his beautiful soul.
We LOVE and MISS you Wevi ~ XOXO.
