Known as Kyle to everyone, he grew up a typical child playing and running in the yard with his cousins. Kyle enjoyed basketball, video games, fishing, and the outdoors.

An avid hunter and fisherman, he took to being an infantryman. He joined the Army in September 2005 to fight in Iraq. He was eager to go over there and get that straightened out. It was something he wanted to do.

His maternal grandfather, Norman Phillips and his paternal grandparents, Blaine and Merle Reece, preceded him in death. Kyle died in Baghdad, Iraq, of wounds suffered when his vehicle encountered an improvised explosive device at age 24. He is survived by his wife, Chauntelle and two children.
