K.B. was educated in the New York City School System. He worked various jobs, however, construction being his most recent; which he loved showing up for.
As a young fella K.B. was an avid basketball player. He was captain of his J.H.S. team and played for the Beacon Center on East 120th Street. Also, he was an awesome bowler on teams at Ball Park Lanes in the Bronx. He received many trophies for both sports during his time playing. K.B. loved spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed dancing, singing, cooking and making people laugh and smile. He had the kindest heart, lived life to the fullest and had the most joyful spirit. His illuminating smile could be seen a mile away.
