Juneau resident Skyler Lee Kim, 10, died Oct. 20, 2003, in a traffic accident on his way to school.
He was born July 2, 1993, in Juneau. He enjoyed kickball, Yu-Gi-Oh cards, riding his bike, spending time with his friends and fishing for "whatever bit his hook." He was a fifth-grader at Glacier Valley Elementary School.
His family wrote, "Skyler lived his life to the fullest in the short time he was with us. He was creative with art and dancing and could make a mean bagel and cheese. He had a patience for his little brother unrivaled by most adults. He will be greatly missed."
His principal, Ted Wilson, said, "he was friends with anyone and everyone."
He is survived by his mother, Christine Judson; father, John Hutson; brother, Tazer Stone; sister, Robyn Crumrine; grandparents, Arlene and Calvin Crumrine, Tom Judson and Julianna Humphreys, and Steven Hutson; great-grandmother, Verle Weisenberg; aunts and uncles, Victoria and Eric Swisher, Ginger and Gordon Griffin, Kim Peterson, Lorie Rounds, Steven and Darlene Hutson; cousins, Jenice and Sasha Hutson; numerous other relatives, and many, many friends.
A celebration of his life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, at Glacier Valley. A memorial fund has been set up at First National Bank in his name. The family may be contacted at 5929 Woods Street, Juneau, AK 99801.
