Kyle was an awesome young man. I first met him at the Compton picnics and he left an indelible impression on me. I had my handicapped grandson with me and Kyle treated him so well by taking him on tractor pulled hayrides and in the golf cart. He made the picnic so enjoyable for my Grandson and I will never forget it. And it said so much about Kyle’s character. Kyle will be truly missed, may he Rest In Peace.

Tragic and sad. Condolences to his family and friends. At least he did great things in his life, although taken home too soon. Rest In Peace and God bless!
