Kyle was a friend to many, a Christian, active for many years within his church. He was a Deacon, Sunday school teacher, and church bus driver. He was also part of a band of close friends, that sang country gospel music, The Country Watchmen.
It’s difficult to capture someone’s life in a few words, but for those who knew Kyle, the words aren’t needed. We all have our own personal memories of Kyle, but we all love him. Some knew him very well; others may have just known him as Santa Claus. He touched many lives. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend. We’ll miss him, cherish our memories, and the time spent with him.
