Kyle was a wonderful man and step-father. I'm grateful to have gotten to know him, as well as his daughter Marsha and her beautiful family. Grandpa Kyle will be missed, the kids will always remember his bedtime stories, and I will never forget his very clever wit !

Dear Karen, Bob & I just learned of Kyle's death & we are so very sorry. Bob used to work with Kyle at Buivk & often spoke of him on what a smart designer he was & how nice he was to work with. I didn't meet him until the driving safety class you taught in flushing. We weally enjoyed that class & the humor he brought to it. He will be greatly missed. Please know you have our deepest sympathy. Love, Bob & Agnes Gardner
