Kyle R. Hellyer

March 8, 1991 – February 14, 2023

Kyle was a lifelong learner. He spent hours reading about and learning the intricacies about things he was passionate about. Things like electric vehicles when they first entered the market, the Space X rocket program, and Formula One racing. He was fascinated by the technology behind the scenes and did all he could to learn about them. His passion to learn also carried over to his favorite podcasts, the stock market, and reading biographies from CEOs and other industry leaders.

One of his greatest joys was his Bernese Mountain Dog, Kimi, who was named after a Formula One driver. We will never forget the hugs he and Kimi shared for the past three years. Whatever he did, he was all in all the time. He had achieved both an associate’s and bachelor’s degree, along with multiple certifications for web development and computer coding.

Family was everything to Kyle. He came from a large family, some living locally, some living away. That meant we had lots of traditions, get-togethers, and trips to see each other. His favorite tradition was the big fourth of July party his parents hosted. it brought lots of families together, and he loved celebrating Independence Day with them.

In high school, he had achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, which he was most proud of, and was a three-time state champion with the Creighton Prep swim teams as well as an individual conference champion in the backstroke with Minnesota State University.

Kyle was also an organ donor and will live on through the life of others.

He was preceded in death by his grandparent, Vern Hellyer; aunt, Nancy Wellendorf.

He is survived by his parents, Rich and Pam; brother, Mitchell; grandparents: Karen Hellyer, Jean, and Gerald Wellendorf; 18 aunts and uncles; 27 cousins; loving dog, Kimi.

Mass of Christian Burial: Friday, February 24th, 11AM at Holy Cross Catholic Church (4810 Woolworth Ave.)

    I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I taught Kyle in third grade at Holy Cross. He was a great student.

    I can’t even put into words how very sorry I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Losing someone you love is so hard. Knowing you’ll be together again one day gives us some comfort. I can see how your son touched so many lives. He will surely be missed.
