Kyle was born in Eugene, Oregon December first of 2000. He was the happiest of babies. Much like now, everyone that came into contact with him could not help but to love him. Growing up he was always laughing and enjoying whatever was going on. He spent much time in Portland/Vancouver where his sister Madison was born and Coos Bay where his little brother Lucas lives with his dad Shawn.
Kyle and his sister came to live with their grandpa Mark and Grandma Barbara in the summer of 2010. He fell in love with Gig Harbor almost immediately. He declared many times over the years, “I love Gig Harbor”. He attended Purdy Elementary, Harbor Ridge Middle School and started his junior year at Peninsula High School this year. He had plans for college after graduation but made everyone aware that he wanted to enjoy his high school years – and he did just that.
He enjoyed playing soccer, skateboarding, pokemon and gaming when he was younger. As he got older, playing video games, talking with his sister Madison and hanging out with his friends were his favorite pastimes. Every summer he looked forward to spending a few weeks in Eugene with his Aunt Kim, his maternal extended family and hanging out with his first very best friend Josh. He and Josh have been friends since birth. He started attending youth group at Believers Fellowship nearly 2 years ago where he enjoyed sharing in Wednesday night meals, learning the Word in small groups, going on trips and laughing and talking with others. On Thursday nights he spent time with his Uncle Matt attending Celebrate Recovery Landing for youth at Chapel Hill. He is surely in Heaven with Jesus now and kicking it with his dad.
Kyle will be achingly missed but will stay forever in our hearts.
