Kim Eyerly age 74 of Livingston passed away early Thursday morning, February 13th 2020 with his wife Marilyn at his side. He was born January 30, 1046 in Boise, Idaho.
He moved to Livingston as a child, graduated from Park High, went on to college in Missoula. Kim was a kind, loving, compassionate, and caring man whose attitude was astonishing through all the hardships and health problems that were thrown his way throughout his life.
He was a hard worker and kept the City Cemetery looking like a park for 20+ years. Where he loved his job. His Moose club membership for over 30 years brought many good friends. They loved his jokes and good nature and always had great things to say about him. He was an inspiration to many and seemed to bring out the best in people. His sense of humor remained intact even on his last day of life. He was so generous and thoughtful and spoiled Marilyn a lot. He always strived to help with projects around the house and between them got them done (eventually). A good team! They enjoyed games shows to keep the memory sharp and listened to his talking books from the Library of the Blind in Helena.
Kim and Marilyn have been inseparable for 30 years and he will be incredibly missed by her and his family and friends.
He also leaves behind his 3 sisters; Myrna Chaney of Missoula, Linda (Jim) Beecher of Seattle, and Cheryle (Wayne) Yost of Clearlake, CA; plus, all of his nieces and nephews and their families. His sisters-in-law Patricia Crowe of Livingston and Barbara Bailly of Red Lodge. His stepchildren Kevin (Dawn) Armstrong of ST. Louis and Jackie Shinn (Michael) of Manhattan.
Godspeed Uncle Kim. I will miss you sorely. You taught the masterclass of focusing on the positive in life, and drying tears with laughter and love... With you, it was never about you. May you finally open your eyes and remember the splendor of the world laid out before you, so long denied.
Franzen-Davis Funeral Home and Crematory has been entrusted with arrangements.
