Kim Law, age 66 of Auburn, IA, passed away on Tuesday, December 6, 2022, at St. Anthony Regional Hospital, in Carroll, IA. Kim Allen Law was born on February 9, 1956, in Fort Dodge, IA, the son of Wilber and Elizabeth (Spencer) Law. He grew up with his family in Humboldt before they moved to Lake View when he was a teenager. Kim graduated from Lake View-Auburn High School in 1974. After that, he attended Iowa Central Community College in Fort Dodge where he earned his business degree.
Kim owned and operated Kim’s Place, a bar in Auburn which would start his entrepreneurial endeavors. He then worked at Haley Equipment in Carroll. He would later own and operate The Country Store in Breda, IA, and then Outlaws Drive-In restaurant in Lake View. Before working at APQS in Carroll, Kim worked at Wittrock Motors as an automotive detailer.
On May 23, 2014, Kim was united in marriage to Shawn Boeger in Lake View. He gained two stepchildren, Jason and Laccey. He and Shawn enjoyed working together both at Outlaws and detailing cars for people over the years. The money they made detailing cars went towards purchasing Kim’s 1987 Monte Carlo SS, his pride and joy!
Kim loved racing and drove a stock car in Alta on Wednesdays and in Denison on Fridays. He was a huge Dale Earnhardt fan who rarely missed watching a race on TV and made a few trips to watch in person as well. He also cheered for the Iowa Hawkeyes and was sure to never miss their games either. Kim liked to tinker. He enjoyed taking things apart to fix and then putting them back together. He could be found on his golf cart driving around Auburn during the non-winter months striking up conversations all over town. He had a knack for talking to people and everyone really enjoyed his conversations and company. His daily cruise to Grant Park on the golf cart with a cold beer in his hand was a must.
Kim played in a band called Trinity back in the day. He was the lead drummer and did some singing. He loved music, especially rock 'n roll. He also was a die-hard Dallas fan. When the show had its 40th Anniversary, he and Shawn made the trip to Dallas, TX, to take part in the celebration. The two of them got their picture taken with the cast of the show which made his day!
Kim had a great sense of humor and was a very kind man. He was always up to helping anyone who needed it. He enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He most recently worked at APQS in Carroll and thought of everyone that he worked with there as family. He will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
Those left to cherish his memory include his wife Shawn Law of Fort Dodge, IA; stepchildren Laccey (Max) Crimmins of Fort Dodge, IA, and Jason Liska of Fort Dodge, IA; grandchildren: Grant Liska, Garrett Steburg, Paisley Liska, and Raymond Crimmins; brothers-in-law Chris Boeger of Tumwater Washington and Jim (Gaby) Boeger of Germany; aunts Mavis Bowden and Dolores Law; cousins: Julie (Law) Millang and husband Gary, Debra (Law) Moore, Sally Bowden, Bill (Nancy) Bowden, Tom (Diane) Law and Michelle Bowden; many other extended family members and friends.
