Kyle Lawrence Chippett, of Grand Falls-Windsor, NL, passed away tragically and suddenly while returning from a vacation in Jamaica.
Kyle is survived by his son Ethan, fiancé Vera, parents Larry and Marie, sister Kayla (Brent), niece Madelyn, nephew Benjamin and step-mom Mary.
Kyle had a love for life as big and as strong as he was. He loved to laugh and took immense enjoyment from saying the unexpected and maybe even shocking someone a little. He was an avid weight lifter and it was hard to find him wearing anything but an Echo hoody and his head phones.
Kyle was a fighter. He beat an impossible diagnosis as a child and lived his life to the fullest despite the lingering effects of that early challenge. Each new day was a victory in that fight.
Family was incredibly important to Kyle. Hugs and kisses were expected. His hugs could leave bruises, but were full of love. He will be sorely missed by all lucky enough to have known him and loved him.
Pallbearers are: Wilson Chippett Sr., Wilson Chippett Jr., Adam Chippett, Clarence Chippett, Terry Burge and Brent Aitken.
Donations in his memory can be made to the Ronald McDonald House, Newfoundland and Labrador.
