Kyle Austin Wecker

Wecker, Kyle

Feb. 14, 1983 — June 1, 2013

With great sadness we say goodbye to Kyle Austin Wecker. His unexpected death at home in Ithaca, N.Y., came far too soon. Born in Anchorage, Alaska, he was 30 years old.

After living in Texas, Florida, California and New Jersey, he moved back to California, settling in Davis. He attended Newton High in New Jersey, Davis High and Davis School for Independent Study, class of 2001. He worked for his uncle Craig at Wecker Surveys before returning to school. He met his wife Emily Haworth in Davis and their daughter was born the following year. They divorced in 2012.

He earned his undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley in 2010. The family moved to Ithaca where Kyle pursued his Ph.D at Cornell University contributing to the design of a VLSI chip that modeled neurons, synapses and their connectivity.

Kyle is survived by his 3-year-old daughter and her mother in Ithaca; father Mark Wecker (Michelle); brothers Alex and Walter of Redding; mother Judy (Holbrook) of Bradford, Texas; sister Jaycee Boyer (Tim) and Jenell, Adele and Paul of Fairfield; grandparents Harold (Nanette) Wecker of West Sacramento and Jenell Wecker of Sacramento; uncles Paul (Kathy) Wecker of Sacramento and Craig (Renee) Wecker of Davis; cousins Eric (Karen) and Stella Patterson Wecker of Caguas, Puerto Rico, Jessica Wecker and Jera Harris, Bari Becker and Donnie of Sacramento; partner Stephanie Peltner of Berkeley; and many more.

A private funeral will be at French Town Cemetery in Shingle Springs. All are invited to a celebration of life on June 15. Go online to http://Kyle-Wecker.virtual-memorials.com/ for more information. Donations may be made to Suicide Prevention, PO Box 622 Davis CA 95617.
