In Memory of
Levi Kim
June 9, 2019 - January 11, 2020

Tuesday, January 14th from 6-8 p.m. at Moreland Funeral Home

Wednesday, January 15th 11 a.m. at Church of the Messiah United Methodist

Levi Emmanuel Kim passed in the presence of God and loved ones on January 11th, 2020. He was born on June 9th, 2019 and lived the first 5 months of his life at Nationwide Childrens hospital, and his last 7 weeks at home.

Levi is the son of Hope and DJ Kim, and the brother of his favorite sister Zoey. He is survived by a family full of loving grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Levi was an incomparable blessing to us. His life was brief, but the impact has been great. He has taught us that all life is a priceless gift that God has given us through His own son, Jesus.

A viewing will be held on Tuesday evening, from 6pm 8pm, at Moreland Funeral Home, 55 E. Schrock Road, Westerville, OH followed by a celebration of life service on Wednesday at 11am, at Church of the Messiah United Methodist Church, 51 N. State Street, Westerville, OH.

Flowers are welcome; memorial contributions may be made in Levis memory to the Kim fund at Church of the Messiah, 51 N. State Street, Westerville, OH 43081. All contributions will go towards building a mission school in Indonesia.
