MISSOULA - Kyle Allen Bolenbaugh, of Missoula, passed away at home on Feb. 25, 2010. At the age of 19, his passing was untimely.
He was born April 18, 1990, in San Luis Obispo, Calif., weighing in at 10 pounds, 15 ounces, to Brian and Dana Bolenbaugh.
A school assignment when he was 10 years old asked for Kyle to give a personal perspective of himself. He wrote: "Kyle Funny. Strange. Annoying. Who wishes to fly with spread wings. Who dreams of paradise earth. Who wants to build a tree house. Who wonders if the day Armageddon comes is tomorrow. Who fears black widows. Who loves his mom and dad. Who likes to watch TV. Who likes to play outside in summer. Who likes to ski and snowboard in winter. Who plans to get good grades. Who plans to never commit a crime. Who plans to live forever ... Whose final destination is a paradise earth." Yes, we will see Kyle in paradise earth.
He will be remembered for his dry wit, his intellectual brilliance, his computer genius and his shy comforting warmth.
His family includes his parents, Brian and Dana; brothers, Parker and Aaron and Aaron's wife, Jenessa, and their children, Mela and Lachlan. He will be missed by all his family and loved ones.
Services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 6, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 1115 Reserve St., with Craig Miller officiating. A reception will follow at the East Missoula Community Center.
Arrangements are under the care of Garden City Funeral Home.
