I knew Kim at Addison. (I always thought he spelled his name Newcomb.) His family lived in a neat house on Waverley just north the Embarcadero intersection. I wasn't friends with him (he didn't seem to have much use for girls, at least not me!) but he fascinated me. Very mischevious and not too happy about spending his days in a classroom at Addison. He was one of those kids who liked hanging out with the janitor. Can't blame him—there weren't too many male role models at Addison!

I'm sorry he has passed on.

Kim was deeper than most, and observed others in an uncannily sensitive way.  I remember our 20th reunion...he was one of the only people who mentioned my mother's death and how he knew that it was a very difficult time for me.  It was strange to hear...the sweet and uplifting words he said.  I miss you Kim.  You were a good friend and a very good person.  You walked lightly on the earth.  I'm so sorry not to see you again.
