Kyle Andrew Nielsen, of Ogden, passed away May 5, 2019, as a result of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. He was born on August 6, 1980, in Ogden, UT. He worked 309th HVAC at Hill Air Force Base.
Kyle had a passion for life and loved spending it with family and friends. He loved snowboarding, golfing, hunting, going to concerts, riding his motorcycle, and hanging out at the Rock Bottom in Ogden. Kyle was always up for an adventure. His brothers shared the following, “No one had each other’s backs better than the Nielsen boys. When it came to being a partner in crime in all their shenanigans, boating, snowbird, backyard BBQ’s, brawls, safaris, and many other adventures, Kyle was always there. His sister Melissa shared, “He would come over just to fill us in on his latest crazy shenanigans, he was always up to something”.
He loved to be around people and always tried to make others happy. He absolutely loved Halloween and hosted an annual Halloween party that many looked forward to all year.
Kyle was very thoughtful and caring, especially when it came to his mom. His mom shared the following, “Kyle would call me every day without fail, sometimes 3 or 4 times a day, just to say, “hi” and to check on me. That meant the world to me”.
His greatest joy was spending time with his two boys. His boys shared the following memories, “I loved going golfing with my dad at different golf courses” (Karder). “Building my skateboard with my daddy” (Kaysen).
Kyle touched the lives of so many people. Words cannot express how deeply loved and missed Kyle will be. His memory will live on in the hearts of everyone who knew him. “Ride easy, Keep Calm and Chive on. We love you always and will miss you forever”.
