Kyle lived life to it's fullest. He lived simply and loved passionately. He listened intently and help immensely. He believed in remembering the past but living in the moment. Life is not a race. Kyle was a teacher. He dissolved the word "hate" out of his children's vocabulary without saying you can't say it. Kyle was solid. Adventure was essential and he loved to share it with others. Kyle had patience and unmeasurable determination.
He embraced every second of his time in the mountains as much as he embraced friends and family.
Kyle loved and was loved. Always and Forever
