Kyle was born on March 18, 1996, to Tom and Kimberly Boehnke in Lake Jackson, Texas. He lived in Lake Jackson for most of his life. He attended Brazoswood High School and obtained a G.E.D. and attended Brazosport College. One of his favorite times in his life was when Kyle lived in Austin with his best friend Gus Prince. He always spoke of the fun and eventful memories they both shared. When he passed, Kyle was a very successful salesman at Ashley Furniture. He loved his job, he wanted to work hard to be successful and to make people happy. Kyle loved life and had a heart of gold, and he was full of sunshine. Kyle was a gentle giant who always brought joy, laughter, and fun times wherever he went. We can all agree that his laughter is what we will miss the most. Kyle touched so many lives and had so many friends. He never met a stranger; if he did, they weren’t a stranger for long. Most of all, Kyle loved his family and everyone in it. Kyle loved how close everyone was and that you could always stop by to see anyone at any time. Kyle loved music, traveling, hunting, fishing, going to the beach, swimming, sports, and especially fast cars. Kyle loved sports the most. He was always rooting for the Longhorns, the Astros, the Rockets, and even the Texans. Kyle was always searching for something more. Now, we pray that he has found what he has been searching for. We will never forget how much light and laughter you brought into our lives.
