Kira’s early life was rocky, involving incarceration at times. His desire to be a positive influence, gave him the push to change his old habits and decisions regarding his life. He later established his residence and career in San Leandro, California.
Kira worked many labor jobs over the years in which he developed a passion for working with his hands. This led him to obtaining a Certified Electrical Safety Worker credential. He worked as an electrical laborer in the construction industry, which allowed him to travel on work assignments throughout much of the Western United States.
Kira was affectionately called “K” by his family and friends. He was known for his sense of humor. He loved to hike and spend time outdoors enjoying nature. He laughed often and enjoyed spending time with his family members. He often said, “The time has come, for true love, God’s true love.”
Kira loved and cherished his children. His children are daughters Elizabeth Funchess (mother, Benita Mosqueda), Shanee Rimmer (mother, Shelly Price); son Kingston Smith (mother, Jennifer Patton). His children saw their dad as a very powerful, loving, and really handsome man, with a fun personality. He was misunderstood, because of his dark past, but was strong, smart, and very brave.
