Kyle, first and foremost, had a deep faith and commitment to the Lord Jesus and had an army of faith filled friends through Lakewood Church in Houston, TX. Kyle was also a college student, where he excelled academically was an accomplished, musician, black belt in karate, Rubik's cube master and was proficient in chess. He was a lover of life -he loved to travel and loved the city of Los Angeles in particular, where he had several amazing friends and hoped to live some day. His favorite foods were sushi and white castles. He was very involved with One Step Camp, an organization that provides childhood cancer survivors an awesome camp experience, and considered them all his family. Kyle also seemed to attract good people wherever he went and had the incredible experience of meeting Richie Sambora of the band, Bon Jovi, attended a gala honoring him in Beverly Hills, all because he befriended a generous man named Norman Harris of Norman's Rare Guitars of Tarzana, CA. Although Kyle was legally blind, he never let his limitations define him. He lived life to the fullest, tasted all that life had to offer, had a unique strength, courage and fearlessness, had a dynamic personality and a spontaneous sense of humor, and loved with passion. Even though he is gloriously experiencing the heavenly realm, he will be sorely missed on this earth. May his short life inspire people to embrace life to the fullest and to seek the everlasting kingdorr of God. His parents are so grateful for all of the loving friends that were part of his life.
