Kevin Christopher Myklebust

June 17, 1998February 10, 2020

“If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart. I'll stay there forever.” ― A.A. Milne (Winnie the Pooh)

Kevin Christopher Myklebust was born on a beautiful spring day, June 17, 1998, at St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, Colorado. Before Kevin could talk, it was clear that he would be an actor because he was always pretending to be King Kong, the Incredible Hulk, Spiderman, and a plethora of other characters. Kevin loved animals (especially snakes) and loved to bring his latest catch home to show his family. His bright blue eyes were full of wonder and excitement when he would talk about every kind of garter snake there was and how he had seen them “smithering” before he caught them. As Kevin grew, his love for nature and creation around him grew as well. Kevin was a very deep thinker and enjoyed discussions about history, politics and religion, and a good game of chess.

Kevin entered into eternal peace on Monday, February 10, 2020.

Kevin adored his brother Benjamin, his sister Hazel and their dog Tex, who adored Kevin right back! Kevin loved his uncles, aunts and cousins and had a wonderful relationship with all of his grandparents. Kevin is preceded in death by his grandmother, Ardith Mott, and his great grandparents, Julian & Jean Rede and Bust and Bassa Myklebust, who he adored.

Kevin is survived by his father and mother, Chris and Beth, brother and sister Ben and Hazel, grandparents Elling & Sherry Myklebust and Philip & Phylis Mott, each of whom he loved to spend time with and have conversations, and loads of aunts and uncles and cousins.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Kevin’s name to the Foothills Animal Shelter at https://foothillsanimalshelter.org/donate/

The family will be holding a private celebration of Kevin’s life.

Oh, my heart is so heavy and sad as I heard about Kevin. I so remember Kevin as a smiling and active boy, full of curiosity. I would have given anything for a whole school of Kevin’s. He was a wonderful child whom I adored.

There are never the right words to deal with the grief you (and I) are feeling. I do know that to grieve much is to have loved much. Grief is a big, deep hole, but it will shrink some, over time, but will always be there. We will never stop grieving Kevin because we will never stop loving him.

My sincere and deepest condolences to the Myklebust and Mott families. I will continue to pray for you each and every day.

We have been thinking about the sad news, for several days, first we offer our sincere condolences to his family.
Our most fond memories were of Kevin and when he was engaging with our other grand children, he just fit in, made the party more full and happier. Always had that beautiful smile that shared so easily. We saw him awhile back, and the first thing he did was give us a big hug, a smile, and that devilish twinkle in his eye.
You are loved, and you also loved. you are missed.

Kevin and I worked together for almost a year. Me and my girlfriend enjoyed everything about Kevin. He instantly fell in love with our dog Roger's.

My favorite memory with Kevin is the last time I saw him. We met at a friend’s house and I was told to bring sandwiches. When I showed up, they weren’t in the house, they had climbed a latter and were on the roof. I was afraid of heights but I climbed up anyway, subs in hand, and joined them. We sat on the roof and watched the sun set behind the mountains while eating. I still remember thinking that the view seemed endless. The weather was perfect and the company was even better.

I couldn’t ask for a better moment with better people.

Kevin meant a lot to me. I appreciated having him as a friend more than he knew. He made a world of difference to me in a time when I really needed it.

To Kevin’s family, I can not imagine what you all must be going through but I want you to know that you’re constantly in my thoughts. I am incredibly sorry for your loss.
