I worked with Kyle at the Regent Beverly Wilshire. Him and I were always talking about classic cinema. I will always remember him as one of the most interesting people I have come across in this life. So sad to hear of his passing.

Kyle & I were friends during our high school years, riding the bus together from our north Appleton neighborhood and sharing lots of laughs. My most sincere condolences to his family. May warm memories of Kyle help fill the emptiness his passing leaves.

Kyle was one of the first and most knowledgeable individuals I came to know on the TCM Message Boards. His keen eye, generosity, and fair-minded attitude brought more than a touch of civility and kindness to a world sorely in need of both. My condolences to all of his family and friends, as well as those of us who only had the privilege to know him online. RIP, friend.
