The greater the challenge, the higher the satisfaction for Kyle. His main love was soccer. Competitive soccer provided him the experience of extensive travel to many fun places. He loved the roads trips with teammates, other parents and coaches. He also enjoyed hanging out with friends, hiking, camping and fishing. - From the time Kyle was a very little boy, he thoroughly cherished spending time with all of his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
