Kenneth S. Lim, 56, passed away peacefully Sunday, November 3, 2019. Before immigrating to the United States, Ken was a graduate of Mapua Institute of Technology in his hometown of Manila, Philippines. He got a degree in electrical engineering and worked in Saudi Arabia after graduation. Afterwards, he returned to the Philippines with an entrepreneurial spirit and opened pizza and McDonald's franchises. He later sold these businesses to immigrate with his family to the United States. Being a go-getter, he enrolled in Nursing School and worked as a Nurse’s Aid for Newport Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Jersey City. His family will always remember him as a kind, loving, helpful, thoughtful, and caring father, son, brother, uncle and friend. He had a great sense of humor that brightened many hearts. He frequently shared his love of food and often indulged in his great passion for chocolates. We will miss him greatly. Kenneth is survived by his mother, Anunciacion, his siblings: Bernadette, Jude, Judy, and Jasper and his children, John and Jessica.
