Kyle Jake Fidler

Kyle Jake Fidler died in his home, Wednesday, Jan, 26, 2000. He was 16.

Kyle was born Oct. 21, 1983, in Anchorage and grew up on the Kenai Peninsula. He enjoyed visiting with his friends on the computer, wrestling with his dogs, hunting, four-wheeling, and summer vacations. He also enjoyed exploring Alaska's beaches, fishing holes and skiffing around the harbors.

His family said, "Kyle particularly enjoyed rough-housing with his brothers and neighbors, and although the youngest, he could sometimes manage to get the upper hand with a sly smile and quick maneuver. Kyle was a sensitive young man with a heart of gold and a loving spirit. He was a loyal and devoted friend who loved camping on the Anchor River with his buddies.

"Kyle was very protective of friends and classmates who were having troubles or were targeted for anything unjustly. He helped his mother maintain an extensive vegetable garden each year, as well as caring for their chickens, planting trees around our community and hauling nets for salmon fishing each season. Kyle was a bright and beautiful boy who could fix most anything from a lawn mower to computer gadgets. His passing is a great loss for everyone that knew him and anyone who missed that opportunity. His gentle soul and innocence surely blinded Kyle to the grand possibilities of his future. Kyle's passing has taken a large part of the hearts of all of us. May the bright spirit of his life live on in the thoughts, words and actions of each one of us. God rest his soul."

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Ivan and La Quita Knodel and Eula and Don Fidler.

He is survived by his mother Kaleen Knodel-Fidler; father Dave Fidler of South Carolina; brothers Jesse and James Derek Fidler; aunts and uncles, Doug Knodel of Barrow, Sheila, Don, Sharon, Tom and Mark Fidler of Kenai and Leo Rollins of Homer; cousins, Jim and Kasrina Knodel; friend James Kienitz; and close friends and family.
