Kyle jesse Swarthout Howells was born the youngest of 5. he was born with multiple heart defects, but never let this slow him down. At 6 he had open heart surgery to repair his heart. A year later we found he had cardiomyopathy.
Kyle was always loud, in your face, demanding. he lived life to the fullest. He was busy. he skate boarded, was a police explorer, seriously into video games. Everything he took on he went into full out. he collected and sold sports cards and would absorb information on them like a sponge. he knew what he was doing. He was an amazing young man.
he loved music and met many band members. He knew about his bands, could quote all sorts of information on each one. his knoweledge of obscure bands never failed to amaze me. he would wake me up, lap top in hand to come listen to this song or look at this videa, it was amazing, epic or kinky. i am so glad i shared this with him. Our first rock concert was to slipknot in orlando. he took his middle sister and me, Mom, along. We stayed hours after and met Mick and james Root, jim Root talked to uis for some time, we also met Sid. it was an amazing experience and I will forever treasure the memories. i had worked form 3 am that day and was beyond exhausted, but so happy to have had that experience with Kyle. he went to many concerts and managed to get into many meet and greets.
he loved professional wrestling, his youngest sister won tickets ot a big wrestling match in tampa and gave the tickets to Kyle and his dad. he texted us pics and called excited. I am so happy he had that.
he also loved the bucs, even when they lost. And he and i would go to fan fest every year. i hate football, but loved going to this every year because he enjoyed it so much. lat year we both worked and were unable to go. How I wish we had just called in to work and gone one last time.
On dec 4, 2011 Kyle was found on the bedroom floor by his 5 year old niece. he had passed of a heart attack just m onths after his 18th birthday. he had a job he loved, had plans to attend college, was set to go with us best friend to see A day to remember, his current fave group. He was an amazing young man and is dearly missed.
