Kyle Eggleston, 62 of Binghamton passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 10, 2013 surrounded by his loving family. Family fulfilled Kyle's wish by opening a window for his spirit to pass onto the other side, leaving his pain behind as he entered eternal peace. Kyle was born January 13, 1951 to Joseph and Ann Eggleston who were waiting for him with open arms. Kyle is survived by sons Jason Eggleston, Brent (Becky) Eggleston and Kyle Eggleston and granddaughter Nicole.

Kyle was an avid Yankee fan who made countless trips to Yankee Stadium. He loved a good poker or pitch game and enjoyed hunting and fishing. He had a quick and witty sense of humor and was a consummate jokester who looked at the humorous side of life above all. He was a friend to all wherever he went and loved his family unconditionally. He served in the Army and was a Viet Nam veteran. He retired from Broome Developmental Center in 2006. It was important to Kyle that his family was with him when he passed; we are so thankful that his wish was fulfilled.
