Garrett, Kyle

Dec. 22, 1964 – Aug. 25, 2013

Kyle Lee Garrett, 48, died tragically when a tree fell on his tent near Priest Lake, Idaho, on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013. He is remembered as daring, fun, loyal, generous, inspiring, amazing, cool, honorable, adventurous and easygoing. Those lucky enough to know Kyle recall a mentor, patient teacher, best boss, loving father, devoted husband and great friend who radiated warmth, kindness and love.

Born Dec. 22, 1964, Kyle grew up in Davis and graduated from Chico State University. He worked as a director for Utah College of Massage Therapy in Salt Lake City and moved to Sandpoint, Idaho, in 2006 where Kyle skied 100-plus days per year, mountain-biked, boated and flew his Piper Saratoga airplane. He also ran a successful online aviation business.

He is survived by his wife and daughter, Jill and Jordan Garrett of Sandpoint; mother, Sharon Garrett of Sacramento; sister, Kelly (Yianni) Pantis of Sacramento; and niece and nephew, Sofia and Andreas. He was preceded in death by his father, Larry Garrett.

He lived an exciting life that most only dream or read about. Kyle, you were taken too soon. Our hearts ache for you — but we know Heaven just got a lot more fun.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Jordan’s college fund may be made at Wells Fargo Bank: Account No. 598 762 4698.

A celebration of life will begin at noon Sunday, Sept. 8, at the top of Schweitzer Mountain Resort. An online memorial is available at www.lakeviewfuneral.com.
