I was a tech at Sugar Creek while Kyle was there. He was a great role model for the new guys. Kyle did everything that was asked of him and more. He got along with the staff and other clients. Kyle and I hit it off right away. We enjoyed working on puzzles and race to see who would get the last piece in. He would display some of his art work on the puzzle table. It was a joy to see his face light up when he talked about working with the dogs. I was sad to hear of his passing. My heart goes out to his family, he most definitely will be missed.

Kyle, the news of your passing is heartbreaking. You were such a wonderful person kind hearted and talented. I have photos of you from when you were working at the daycare I’ll have to find them. I remember hanging out with you at your house in Blaine Behind the daycare center the fun we had will never be forgotten. I am sorry you suffered all these years if I could have helped I would have depression is such a horrible disease and I am sorry you felt that way. Addiction is hard to over come I know You are so strong and fighting to win but sadly it won. You are no long suffering and can be at peace. I know god will have you watching over many people. Take care Kyle.

There are no words to express how sorry I am for the loss of Kyle. My heart is broken. You all are in my thoughts daily. Our families had such great times together, we watched our kids grow up together. I credit Kyle with potty training Josh! He was just over 2 ½ when he stated one night “I want to wear underwear like Kyle” and that was it. He idolized him. I will remember Kyle’s sweet and gentle nature and how the kids always gravitated toward him. He was truly gifted in art and music and poetry, I enjoyed what he shared. Despite the pain he felt, he left so much love here on earth. I have no doubt he is walking with the angels and at peace. I hope you all feel the love of those who surround you right now, let it carry you. The loss of your beautiful boy, Kyle, is a great loss to our world. Love you all so much, Denise Star

I first met Kyle when I started working at Step and Go and he would come in with Niki. Then I got to watch him on occasion while he was there. When he got older, we got to work together at Step and Go. I couldn’t ask for a better co worker. He was a go getter, the kids loved him, the parents loved him and I believe everyone that I worked with, loved having Kyle work with them at every age level in their room. How could you not, he was kind, gentle, and paid so much attention to the kids and their different needs. One word that sticks out to me that the kids/parents always said about Kyle on pretty much a daily basis more than once: AWESOME! So Kyle, Continue to be AWESOME, because I believe he needed your awesomeness!

Kyle was one of my favorite people, he was my bestfriend, my platonic soulmate. There's so many memories of Kyle that I'm grateful I was able to have with him. One thing he said to me is that we would be life long friends and I'm sad that it's been cut short ..however I'm so grateful for our time together. I had relapsed last year pretty badly and Kyle picked me up for a meeting with some of our friends and after playing my favorite song that was a song we both equally loved; he started dancing and singing along to his what he called "real" rock music,I listened to "butt" rock according to him haha and he just wanted me to smile because I was so full of shame I wore it all over my body. Rest in Paradise Kyle, Forever missed, Always loved , and never Forgotten ❤

Sweet Kyle,

At first we knew eachother from me dropping you off at the orthodontist when you were like 15. Then we worked together at Step & Go child care owned by your mom. So then naturally 😂 we started to date. That was over a decade ago but we cared enough to stay in contact over the years.

You had the most caring, kind and creative soul, Kyle. Your heart was generous and giving. You had incredible potential with your remarkable art, explicitly expressive music, passion for animals and unconditional love for kids.

I find your passing extremely hard to digest and swallow. Too soon, Kyle, too soon. I miss you and I am so unexplainably sorry for the suffering, loneliness and heartbreak you endured over the years. I believed in you and your sobriety, always but you can rest easy now. Your pain is gone. My pain will linger but I find solace that your beautiful soul is in an amazing place.

I hug my daughter a little more tightly now thinking maybe you can feel the hug too. I love you. Kyle, you have a special place in my life and in my heart. ❤

Kyle was such a kind, gentle and respectful kid. I am so glad I had the chance to know him. We always were blown away by his drawings and art.

Kyle..big brother /: .. “wild Kyle”.. despite what the last few years might have made you believe... I loved you more than I can describe .. actually I think you said it best once in one of your songs... we have a bond that can withstand just about anything. I have so many memories with you, both as kids and as men. When we were young I thought the world revolved around my big brother. I just wanted to be where you were and do what you were doing. When we were in elementary school I remember our bed time being 9pm and we had connecting bed rooms and we would pretend to go to sleep and as soon as the coast was clear we would meet in your room and stay up for hours playing video games until dad caught us. It mostly consisted of me watching you play games that were too scary for me 😅. We grew up in the best family and yet we managed to take a questionable path in life. This brought us together in a strange unfortunate way... but I was glad we had each other through these times. I can’t even tell you how much it hurts me that you and I wasted so much time being mad at each other, I would do anything to go back in time and eat crow so we could get back to being best friends like we once were. I just want my big brother back. I love you Kyle and I will always remember you and the 27 years we spent together.

I was one of your daycare teachers when you probably were 5 or 6 you always had radiant smile and made me laugh at some of the games you taught me...you grew up and ended up watching Patrick a couple times and Patrick was always excited and you inspired Patrick into drawing.. he always wanted to be good as you! You will always be remembered and never forgotten,
