Kyle DeWall Obituary

Kyle Bradley DeWall, who graced this world with his gentle humor and thoughtful nature, embarked on his final adventure on December 21, 2023. Born on June 26, 1989, in Canon City, Colorado, Kyle, known for his infectious laughter and kind spirit, left us far too soon at the age of 34 in Fort Collins, Colorado, due to a tragic hit-and-run accident.

Kyle's story began in the scenic city of Canon City, where he was born to his loving parents, Sherri Hicks and Robert DeWall. His family tree branched out to include his stepmama Dinah Navarette and his stepmom Jona DeWall, as well as his doting grandparents, Jack & Charlene Hicks and David & Becky DeWall. His life was further enriched by his aunts and uncles, Michael (Carol) Hicks, Gabe (Dena) Hicks, Dan (Christine) Hicks, Mike (Debra) DeWall, and Lynette (Steve) Harris; step-siblings Andrew and Dallas Gabriel, Veronica Mccormick, along with a spirited ensemble of cousins, extended family, and special family friends who filled his days with joy and camaraderie. Kyle's love for his family and friends was immeasurable.

A proud graduate of Canon City High School in 2007, Kyle's academic journey was just the beginning of a life filled with passion and curiosity. He was a man who found solace in the simple pleasures of life—fishing in the tranquil Colorado lakes and streams, camping under the starlit sky, and basking in the warmth of the Colorado sunshine. Kyle's faithful companion, Riddick or "Rid Rat" as he playfully called him, was always by his side, sharing in these cherished moments.

Overcoming dark battles through many years of his life, Kyle remained gentle and witty, always ready with a thoughtful word, a kind gesture, or a funny joke. Kyle's laughter was a melody that resonated in the hearts of all who knew him. A natural comedian, he had an uncanny ability to lighten any mood and could find humor in the mundane. Kyle's love for music was profound. It was the language through which he expressed his deepest emotions and connected with the world around him. It spoke to his soul, and through it, he shared a part of himself with others. As the poet once said, "Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." Victor Hugo's words resonate with the memory of Kyle, whose own life was a symphony of joy, compassion, and love.

Kyle was in the prime of his life, proud of achieving sobriety and the upward trajectory of his life. In the words of the great Helen Keller, "What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Kyle's spirit, his love, and his laughter have become a part of the tapestry of our lives. As we bid farewell to Kyle, let us carry forward his light, his love, and his legacy, for in doing so, he remains with us, always.
