In Loving Memory
Kim Richard Whitehead passed from his life on June 19, 2016, in Newport Beach.
Born in Santa Monica, he was the son of Peter and Marianne Whitehead. Kim was a sweet soul that had a huge love for people and passion for playing the drums. A local street artist, he enjoyed crafts created from throwaway materials and threads from old clothing.
Whitehead considered many people to be family, especially those amongst the homeless community in Laguna Beach. Whitehead touched many lives along the way with his story and generous giving, and he will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
Whitehead is survived by his brother, Tom, and sisters, Jennifer and Brooke. He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers, Peter Jr. and Clifford.
As per his wishes, Whitehead’s ashes will be laid to rest at sea. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local food pantry.
“I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took me in.” Matthew 25:35
