COTTINGHAM, Kim – It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Thomas Kim Cottingham on March 24, 2023.  Kim was the beloved soulmate of Liz, adoring father of David, Jeremy (Sam), Colin (Ashley), Sarah (Joe) and Richard (Naoko).  He will be sadly missed by his nine beautiful grandchildren and all those who knew him and enjoyed his wonderful sarcastic sense of humor.  Kim was a highly sensitive individual who spent his life as a proficient Educator, Principal and Special Education Team Leader with the Grand Erie District School Board.  In 2009, Kim received the prestigious award for Inclusive Educator of the year. Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Kim knew how much he loved Disney World, especially vacations at Disney with his children and grandchildren.  A celebration of life will be held at a later date by invitation only.  Those wishing to donate in memory of Kim are asked to consider St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church.  The JASON SMITH FUNERAL CHAPEL, 689 Norfolk St. North Simcoe in care of arrangements.  Personal online condolences may be shared at (519) 426-0199  "Blessed are those who touch the stars knowing their touch could burn them forever" (Liz)
