Mal Sul Kim, 81, of Kernersville, North Carolina, passed away on Sunday, November 19, 2023.


Born on August 20, 1942, in South Korea, Mal was a dedicated career welder who helped construct big ships in Pusan before bringing his skills to Winston-Salem. Mal won many awards for his dedication. He eventually retired from Varco Pruden Buildings, leaving behind a legacy of hard work and expertise.
