Kyle was a boy who fought his way to become a man and was stricken again by a mighty sword. His fight was honorable and will always inspire. God bless his strong heart. He was one "tough hombre."

While at Woodsville High School, he was a member of the golf team (and was captain in 2011), the ski team (and was captain in 2012)and the baseball team. In his spare time, he enjoyed playing guitar, driving, snowmobiling, dirt biking and, most importantly, hanging with his family and friends.
He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Edward Owen and Ruth Owen; his paternal grandparents, Fergus Mooney and Anne Mooney; his maternal uncle, Stephen Owen; and his paternal aunts, Cathleen Grantland and Elise Mooney.
