Whether he took care of his children or not doesn't matter!! This should happen to no one!!! His kids will never get the chance to know him now...what a selfish rude thing to say at a time like this!!!

My son deployed with Kim February 2010 and is extremely upset by this senseless tragedy. I did not know him, but agree that opinions about his parenting should be left out. Keep focused on the life lost..he was someone's son, brother, father, etc. And he fought for this country. God Bless Slayko...rest in peace. And to his family, my prayers go out to you. Try to find peace in the memories you have of him.

My son also served overseas with Kim and is proud to call him a friend and much loved fellow soldier. His military family mourns his death.

Slayko will always be remembered regardless of his past good or bad. Let's not be petty on here. I know a lot of us are stunned by his death. He didn't need to make it through getting rocketed and mortered and shot at just to die here at home. RIP KIM SLAYKO

kim had two step children who he adored. Regardless if he wasn't the real father he did love them like they were his own and cared for them when they were in his presence.

He was a good dad, husband, and my friend. He made everyone that knew him smile and laugh. And on top of all that, he was an american hero. The world has lost a good person, just pray to God they catch the piece of shit coward that did this.

The loss of Kim still plagues me and my family (Slayko Family) daily. He did not have kids and as far as I'm concerned neither does she, she hardly qualifies as a mother or a wife for that matter, unless theif, drug addict and adulteress (with Kim's step-father) fall under those categories. I'm sorry he ever got tangled up with such a worthless person he deserved so much better, it cost him his life. Her lying under oath on stand at the trial only further solidifies my opinion of her as a person and ensures her a spot in Hell...away from Kimmy. We love and miss Kimmy and his vibrant soul so much, our family had truly suffered a tragedy.

I'm still shocked my this and really confused about the recent learning that she is in prison now. So sorry for your loss. I grew up with her and am shocked to see how these people's lives have been destroyed.
