Kyle Rone Bailey

August 12, 1989 ~ July 1, 2020

Kyle Rone Bailey was called back to his heavenly home on July 1, 2020. Kyle was born August 12, 1989 to Mitch and Jana Bailey in Las Vegas, NV. Kyle is the third of four children: Nykol, Tyler, Kyle, and Kelsey.  

Kyle was a unique individual from the moment of his arrival and remained so right up until his departure from this life.

As a child, Kyle was always keen to share an animal fact and was frequently found enthralled in a National Geographic documentary.

He was constantly sharing little-known facts with everyone. Kyle could go toe-to-toe with any ornithologist or paleontologist and was full of information that he freely shared with any willing (and many not-so-willing) listeners.

As soon as Kyle was strong enough to carry a fishing pole or tote a gun he was found out in nature.  Fishing was his first real passion and he was an avid fisherman his entire life.

Kyle also had a passion for guns and was very knowledgeable about firearms.  He especially enjoyed hunting and exterminating prairie dogs. 

Kyle loved the scouting program and all the great adventures that program and his leaders were involved in. 

Kyle discovered the love of his life, Bree, when they had a serendipitous prom after their original dates fell through and they spent the evening together.  They quickly became inseparable.  

At the age of 19 Kyle was called to the Portland, Oregon mission which he loved.  Shortly after returning from his mission Kyle and Bree were married on December 18, 2010 in the Monticello temple.

Kyle’s life was devoted to serving his fellow beings. He never said an unkind word to or about a single soul and instantly forgave those who were unkind to him.

One of Kyle’s greatest talents was recognizing the needs of others, whether it was welcoming a new friend or serving those around him.  He had a way of making all who met him feel welcome and loved.

He took great joy in surprising people with acts of service. Kyle didn’t just claim to believe in Christ’s teachings; he applied and lived those teachings every single day.

Kyle was a Christ-like example to all those who knew him and he had an unconditional love for everyone he met. Kyle loved fiercely and was fiercely loved; he will be greatly missed.

Kyle leaves behind the love of his life, Bree, his parents, Mitch and Jana Bailey, his three siblings, Nykol (Jeremy) Rice, Tyler (Hannah) Bailey, Kelsey (Tanner) Shumway, his grandparents Larry and Johnni Bailey and many nieces and nephews that he loved as his own. Kyle was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Clisbee and Peggy Lyman.
