Kyle Paul Kuersten (May 26, 1983 — Nov. 25, 2016)

Kyle Paul Kuersten, born May 26, 1983, in Anchorage, AK, began his afterlife journey on November 25, 2016. Kyle fought a long, brave, fierce and unrelenting battle against cancer. Having never considered it work, Kyle enjoyed his trade in concrete and was able to support all four of his most precious jewels, his children, Haven, Kennith, Sierra and Bayley.

Kyle was an amazing father, a best friend, an inspiration to his nieces and nephews, an unforgettable brother, an adored grandson and a beloved son.

Kyle’s passions included fishing, camping, hiking, karaoke, spending time with friends and family, and shooting firearms. Kyle loved fiercely and gave generously. It is a known fact, Kyle would give you the last dollar out of his wallet, the shoes off his feet, and the shirt from his back.

Kyle had a smile that lit up a room, a glow in his eyes that warmed your soul, a laugh as bold as thunder, and a fierceness in him that brought the biggest of men to their knees.

He will be cherished. He will be missed. He will be loved. He will be celebrated. He would want us all to live life to his generous standard and love life like there is no tomorrow.

Although his life was short lived, Kyle’s impact on numerous lives will shine on through many.

Kyle’s celebration of life will be held Saturday, December 3, 2016, at 1:00 pm @ Elk Creek Elementary School, 804 W. Main Street, New Castle, CO 81647.
