Kenneth Carl “Buzz” Kime was born to Jake and Edith (Mitchell) Kime on April 18, 1935 at his Aunt Lizzy Ladley’s home in Mullen. His early years were spent on the Kime ranch north of Whitman in the Nebraska Sandhills. The youngest of four siblings, Buzz acquired his lifetime nickname as a toddler when a hired hand’s observance of his “buzzing around” prompted him to call Kenneth, Buzzy. Buzz, at one time taught by his older sister, Beth, attended elementary school in one-room country schools. In 1943, when he was eight, the Kimes relocated to a larger ranch south of Nenzel, then known as the HL Bar where he ranched until he was no longer able.
