In memory of
LANCASTER, Kim Lancaster, Kim, 66, passed away January 7, 2020 in Dallas, Texas, from colon cancer. Born November 13, 1953, in Weslaco, Texas. After attending Weslaco schools Kim enlisted in the US Air Force and served overseas. He attended the University of Texas-Austin and graduated with a degree in geology. He worked in the oil industry in West Texas and New Mexico for City Services and Occidental Petroleum. In retirement Kim lived in Dallas and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. He was active in the recovery community and was a friend and counsel to many others. He was a voracious reader, a student of history, and enjoyed playing the guitar. He spent his days in Mexico zooming around San Miguel on his motorcycle, grilling outdoors for friends, and tending to a rooftop patio full of native plants. He was devoted to his pets, a long line of dogs and cats who returned his adoration. Preceded in death by his father Rogers Lancaster and brother Rogers Hall (born Rogers Lancaster, Jr.). Survived by his mother Betty McDaniel Lancaster of Dallas; sister Karen McCutchin (Jerry) of Dallas; brother Kermit Lancaster (Sarah) of Westerville, Ohio; sister Kris Marsh (Chuck) of Lawrence, Kansas; sister Kay Fulton (Duncan) of Dallas; and many nieces and nephews.
