It is with sadness that I inform you of the passing of Lincoln Park's own James Forrest Kiick who passed away on June 20, 2020.
Born and raised in Lincoln Park, Kiick played football, baseball, and basketball at Boonton High School. He made the All-Morris County team, but as a defensive back, not as a running back, and graduated in 1964.
A photo of Kiick hangs in the Lincoln Park PAL/Community Center and a retired jersey honoring him hangs in the gym at Boonton High School.
After high school in New Jersey, Kiick went west and played college football at Wyoming from 1965 through 1967.
Kiick played for the NFL and the AFL. He played for the Miami Dolphins and helped his team win back-to-back Super Bowls.
Jim retired in 1978 and then worked as a private investigator for the Broward County Public Defenders Office. Jim Kiick died on June 20 at the age of 73. His daughter is professional tennis player Allie Kiick.
Please keep Jim's family in your thoughts and prayers.
