I leave this trubute to my wife Starr Anderson. She was the love of my life. Starr and I were married for almost 24 years. We have 2 boys age 24 and 27. Starr was a very loving,caring and giving person. At age 35 Starr gave her life to Chirst. She trusted God with all things in her life. Starr passed away after battling brain cancer for 5 years. I was blessed to be her best friend, and husband.
I remember Starr and Robin from 4th grade through high school. After school, we would go to her house and always took off our shoes because their home had white carpet! I have fond memories of Starr and am so sad for her passing. I hope she was peaceful. Sandy

Kim Kilmer was born January 15, 1954 in Dallas, Oregon to Kenneth Kilmer Sr. and Evelyn Burbank Kilmer.
He was a sales representative, travelling around the East Coast selling household goods at trade shows. But that really doesn’t tell who Kim was.
Kim’s death was not ordinary; he was a holy man. He passed on in peace and love and the mercy of the Supreme Lord.
His religious beliefs are called Sanatan Dharma. He was dressed in pure cloth (kurta: shirt, dhoti: like a sarong and chadar: neck scarf). He had some very sacred beads aound his neck that could not be removed, a leaf from the tulsi plant (holy basil) on his tongue, a bag containing other holy beads was placed at his side, his family anointed his forehead with sacred clay and he was immediately cremated. All these things are necessary to properly honor their customs of last rites. His ashes will be placed in the Ganges River, in India, in a private ceremony.
Kim passed away at his home in Eugene on August 18, 2009 from brain cancer. He was 55. He is survived by daughters Nadia of Mexico and Varshana of California and siblings Ken of Eugene, Kathy of Las Vegas and Robert of Augusta, Georgia.
Kim and his family were the first people that I knew in Las Vegas, as we stayed with them when we arrived from central Nevada. Kim's father Ken passed early,but I called his Mom Aunt Evelyn always. We shared many growing up moments together and we probably learned some things we should not have at the same time. I haven't seen Rob or Ken Kevin in years, but I I do visit with Kathy. Your loss, for many reasons, must be difficult, as I will miss the opportunity of not sharing as we finally mature.
From Kathy Kilmer-Andrews on September 23rd, 2012
My brother was a great song writer and musician...He gave us many years of entertainment with his guitar and sweet singing voice...He was always happy to share his new songs with those who wanted to listen and there were many...
I miss him more every day but feel so blessed to have been so close to a Special Brother for the years we had together..
Kim would have loved to be there with you all on this your 40th High School Re-Union..I'm sure he would have brought along his guitar and a new song fitting the theme for Clark High School's Graduating Class of "72"...He may even have written one for my graduating class of Clark High School "1969"...Oh I'm sure he would have!!.
Miss You Madly Brother of Kim...
And thank you Michael Ozuna for posting Kim's Memorial.... xoxoxox Kathy Kilmer

Bill married Karen, the love of his life and soulmate, in 1974. They shared a beautiful life and home for themselves and their two daughters for many happy years. His daughters, Kristen and Kimberly, were the lights of his life. The addition of a wonderful grandson, Ethan, completed the circle of family for Bill. He considered his family to be his greatest treasure. Always the professional and hard worker, Bill served an apprenticeship in the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 525 as well as serving an apprenticeship in the Elevator Constructors.

My God, I cant believe it. I never knew until today. I have been trying to find him, and I just now read this on the Clark site. Karen if you are reading this, I am so sorry that we lost touch all those years back. I loved him and always did, he was my best friend in high school, and always enjoyed being with him. I dont think we ever had an argument or disagreement. And Lynn Jenni, has asked me for years to find Jacque for her, and I couldnt. And for his father and his sister to go after him so soon. Tell Joan, and Cindy, [i dont know what to tell them, except this is a very sad day, I wished I never read this web sight.}
Just prior to his 50th birthday Blair E. Wilcox went on to a happier sphere. He left behind an ever expanding legacy in his six stalwart children.

Dear Calle and family, I was saddened to hear of your loss. Not sure if you remember Bill and I from the 19th ward, but I certainly remember you and Blair. You were both so friendly and welcoming. Bill and I were married 37 years when he passed just after an early retirement so we could play ! I hope you and your family are well. Many years have passed, but Blair is surely remembered. Sincerely, Karen Middleton
Mr. Wilcox was an extraordinary man who made every student feel special, talented, and important to him. I first met him long before coming to Clark High School because his wife, MaryAnn, was my favorite person at Hyde Park, and my cheerleading advisor. Most importantly, she was like a 2nd mom to me, and Bob (as I learned to finally call him in the later years of his life) was just a tremendous friend. He was such a great family man, devoted to his wife, daughters, and his church. He had a wicked sense of humor, and was never shy to play practical jokes on people he loved. I loved Mr. Wilcox. He was an integral part of my childhood, and one who helped make me who I am today. He is very much missed by his family and those of us who love him. God Bless You, Mr. Wilcox!
