Kyle Warnick was tragically taken from this world after being hit by a car while walking his dog on September 15, 2014 in Kirkland, WA. Kyle’s was a life well-lived for one taken so soon. He was a beautiful soul and touched thousands of lives in various communities over the years.
Kyle was born December 18, 1970 in Shoreline, WA. His intelligence and creativity were evident from a very young age. He grew up engrossed in books, comics, all things Star Wars and was an intrepid member of Cub Scout Pack 177.
From Cub Scouts through Boy Scouts he persevered to earn Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout. Kyle’s love of Scouting continued through his time on staff at Camp Parsons and later serving as Pack Leader for his children’s time in Scouting.
He attended Watson Groen High School in Shoreline and was voted “most creative” by his classmates which held true for the balance of his days. He went on to study English and Fine Arts at Seattle Pacific University. Kyle channeled his creative energies professionally through work in Public Relations and Marketing for firms such as T-Mobile, the National Cancer Institute and most recently at Microsoft. His work was instrumental in the original Microsoft Surface product launch. His real professional and personal passion was storytelling. Kyle was a master storyteller and created his own venture called Stories Told Well which helped individuals and organizations think differently and use storytelling as a powerful tool. Kyle’s blend of humor, creativity, intelligence, heart, charisma and timing made his stories so memorable. It’s those stories that resonate so much with those that he’s left behind.
Kyle was a man who loved life. He had a laugh that would make others laugh. He was in awe of the genius and vision of Walt Disney. He admired the humility of Jimmy Stewart and all things “It’s a Wonderful Life”. His culinary abilities were truly noteworthy. He used the latter to honor his wife by creating a cooking group where husbands would cook 5 course meals for their wives. He loved music and cinema and would hold occasional mini-concerts in his home for local musicians. Kyle’s affinity for the Christmas season was legendary and he would personally deliver his annual Christmas Mix CDs to anyone that would ask.
Kyle loved his family deeply. Words can’t adequately express the devotion he had for his wife and children. He met his wife Pam during their time at Seattle Pacific University and had recently celebrated their 22nd Anniversary last month. Their marriage was an example to others of true love, laughter and happiness. Kyle was immensely proud of his sons Joshua and Jackson and would beam as he spoke about their most recent accomplishments or cheer them on in their various activities. Kyle is also survived by his father John Warnick and sister Kim Warnick. He was preceded in death by his mother Marjorie Warnick.
Kyle’s faith in Christ gives comfort and hope to his family and many friends of a reunion in Heaven. A celebration of Kyle’s life will be held on Friday, October 3 at 1 p.m. at Bellevue Presbyterian Church.
