Our family has sadly lost another member. Kyle Anderton was born on March 4th, 1963, in Salt Lake City, Utah. At age 58, Kyle literally died of a broken heart. He had a major heart attack and passed away in the early morning hours of January 11, 2022.
We know that he struggled mightily while missing his sweetheart Brandi for the past nine months and was happy to reunite with her again.
He was a friend to all and deeply enjoyed the outdoors. He was especially fond of the family cabin in the Uinta mountains of Utah and was always looking for ways to get back to that special area. He was extremely proud of his children who each brought him great happiness.
Kyle is survived and will be forever remembered by five children who were the light of his life and very important to him. Taylor (Sandra) of Las Vegas, Nevada, Katelyn and Nick of Moscow, Idaho, Colby and Alexis of Prairie City, Oregon. He is also survived by his mother, Lorraine, sister Jolyn, brother, Steve (Kim), and sister Stacie (Steve Sheehy). Many surviving nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles were happy to have had Kyle in their lives.
He is also survived by close members of Brandi’s family in Prairie City, Oregon, who have been wonderful support to Kyle. These include Wayne Bernard and Rhonda Bernard (Brandi’s father and mother), Eric Bernard (Brandi’s brother), and nieces Emily and Megan Bernard.
Kyle was met on the other side by many who loved him including his recently deceased wife Brandi, his father Don, his sister Sharlyn, a nephew Tyler Sheehy, and niece Tara Sheehy, who all preceded him in death. All of them have been busy preparing for this reunion. Those of us remaining behind are a little jealous of the party they must be having!
We will miss him but pray that he is finally at peace with Brandi at his side along with so many others that love him.
The Anderton family will be eternally grateful to Kyle and Brandi’s niece, Emily Bernard, who has been a caregiver to Colby and Alexis, and to Eric and Megan who will continue to be a positive influence for good in their lives.
Kyle’s wishes were to be remembered at the family cabin. The family will honor those wishes later this summer after the snow melts.
