I don't even know what to say. I don't think there are words to express my feelings. I wasn't even close with Kyle but nobody deserves to go out so young. This has me pretty freaked out, and more than anything reminds me of the value of the time that we have. Its a punch to the gut telling me not to waste time without enjoying life, as Kyle always seemed to. He always looked like he was having a blast and making friends.

As a Father...

This sad news for sure. I am sorry this has happened to his family. To pass @ 20 is a prime example of why it is important to not hold grudges over silly things. I lost a close friend just 2 years ago. Talking to my friend's Dad at the Funeral actually made my life better. He told me that they had a fight a few months ago and hadn't talked.....so his last memory/words to his son was a fight instead of telling him he loved him. His Dad told me he would be regret this for the rest of his life. I told him to concentrate on his love for his Grandson...it is what your son would have wanted.

I hadn't talked to my Dad in 2 years. And because of my friends death I now have a relationship with my Father again.

All this rambling......I will cut to the chase. Live a happier life and just get along. Don't sweat the small things in life.

May you have eternal peace Kyle.

I have not cried in a long time, until today. Rest in peace my friend.
Friends come and go, but rarely the kind of friend that Kyle was. At meets he usually worked on other members cars rather than his own. On line he was always the humorist and posted some of the funniest stuff. He is sorely missed by me and this community.

I was about the same right after I got off the phone with you....for quite a bit....just sat out on the porch for a while and listened to the rain...and thought of times with Kyle...Kyle was a great kid, great friend....I am going to miss him at the meets...and online...

This is a reminder to live life to the fullest, do what it takes to acheive your dreams, and never let the petty crap in life get in the way...because you never know when it may end...Kyle did just that, in his 20 years on earth he made such a big impact on so many people...rest in peace man...

I usually stayed in the background not really saying anything, but R.I.P Kyle and my true condolences to his family. I think a lot of us knows how it feels to lose a loved one expeiailly family member.

I do not really know Kyle, but still consider him a friend, so I am still torn up inside and this is one very sad day for all the LH communities out there.

There is nothing more that Kyle loved than Di.net and all of his car-guy friends. Your words, thoughts and prayers have touched me and Troy and we will hold them dearly as we try to get through the darkest hours without him. Words can not express how gratefully thankful I am that all of you helped in mentoring him in learning about 'treps. My heart is aching, and I miss him so much. I am thankful all of you were part of his life. Thank you, Jeanne Meyer, Mega-treps mom

07-19-2010, 01:21 AM
I am fighting back the tears as I speak, but I do not like quoting movies if I can help it, but one part of the movie "Gladiator" comes to my mind:

At the end of the movie when the Lucilla is talking Gracchus, here is a twist on it:
He was a member and a friend of the LH communities. Honor him. (Original Quote "He was a soldier of Rome. Honor him. ")

Still though my thoughts and condolenses go out to Kyles family and his memory and wisdom on here will cherish for a very long time...

**EDIT**

In the infamous words, Go with God my brother and do not be afraid of your new home...

Wow, I cant believe he is gone. I've never met him, but by his posts he seemed to be a great person. He has helped me out several times on here. He was so young, its too bad I didn't get to know him. They say the good die young, why I do not know. My best regards to his family.

I have actually never met or spoken to Kyle, we had only exchanged words here. How he carried himself and the extent of knowlege for a 20 year old really impressed me. I am sure he will be missed by many.

As a father of three who are around Kyles age I am sorry for your loss and you should be proud of who he was.

My deepest sympathies go out to Kyle's family.
What some people don't understand in this situation is that this is not just an internet forum. We differ in that many of us have met in person, shared good times and have fond memories. We had true friendships, not just a cyber link.
Kyle is by far one of the best. He was smart, dedicated and never gave a second thought to lending a hand to anyone that needed it. Pretty remarkable considering the youth of today.
He has been a guest in my home as well as others and was welcome anytime. He will be sadly missed my many friends and family. It is a tragic loss for all that knew him. He won't be forgotten and I'm sure there will always be talk of our favorite ginger at meets in the future.

From Kyles Mom:

Dan, I want you to know, we did some funeral shopping today for Kyle and one of the things they asked us was about his clothing. I thought it would be appropriate for him to be in a t-shirt and jeans. He is a 19 guy, who, I feel, would not want to be viewed in a suit; therefore, as a tribute to him and DI.net, I am going to have him in the di.net shirt that you and the guys sent him, along with a pair of jeans. I think he would approve of that, don't you?

Squilliam
07-19-2010, 08:37 PM
.....I'm shocked to see this. Really at a loss for words. Kyle was a good friend and I'll never forget him. He was an irreplacable piece of this community and I'm incredibly saddened to hear this. My prayers go out to the Meyer family. May God welcome you with open arms buddy....

R.I.P. Kyle.. I teared up a few times just reading threw these posts and remembering all the nights of being up till like 2 or 3 in the morning talking about cars with him. I never got to meet him and really wish I would have.

I don't think I need to ask this, but will someone post the funeral arrangements once they are known?

And massive props to Kyle's mom & family. It's very touching to see them recognize the DI community.

I only met Kyle twice - just in the past year - and as the others have said, he was cool as all get-out. He seemed to have his head on pretty straight and certainly offered up assistance within the community when and where he could. His passing feels like I've lost one of my own brothers.

See you on the other side Kyle...

07-19-2010, 09:00 PM
I was weary of posting. Its just is not right. All he ever did was help people out. A good person so young cut so short is just not right.


Having lost my mother a year a go and having a close call on the highway, I am truly grateful to be alive. I could not imagine any words to say to his family, words just cant express the feelings you have when you lose someone close.

Best of wishes and love of happiness to Kyle and his loved ones.


Live life to the fullest and never stop dreaming.

Reading these heart-breaking posts reminds me of my grandmother's funeral, nearly five years ago. My uncle read a poem that I found very moving:

A ship sails and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says She is gone.

Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large now as when I last saw her. Her diminished size and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.

And just at that moment, when someone at my side says she is gone, there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout - There she comes!

That is what dying is. An horizon and just the limit of our sight.

Lift us up O Lord, that we may see further.

God speed, my friend. This isn't "The end." We'll be seeing you, when it is our time.

I don't know where this came from, someone named Strangis heard it and recorded it as John Wayne spoke at the funeral of director Howard Hawks in 1977

"Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hust,I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft star that shines at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there.

I did not die.


Carried this clipping since my son passed Jean, and my wifes brothers son also.
All way before their time and all way before us.

Take care of yourself and family now they need you more than ever and everyone knows you did everything you could for Kyle.

Wow, I had to go back for a few edits, couldn't hold back either.

It never gets easier you just have to do the best you can. Remember those good times and cherish those memories.

From Kyles dad:

Kyle Meyer & His Intrepid Buddies July 19, 2010

Thank you all for helping, mentoring, guiding, challenging, entertaining, and most of all, befriending my son Kyle.

The Internet is adding new ways for people to relate and become friends, and Kyle coming here is a perfect, positive example.

Kyle had very focused areas of interest, and was happiest communicating with people with the same interests. He was truly at home here.

While your dedication to a particular Chrysler platform brought him here, he learned a lot more here than just cars. Among other things, you guys taught him how men with differing opinions and diverse backgrounds can get along for the greater good. Basically, respect. With all the bad stuff on the Internet for people his age, any father would be happy to have his son learn the ropes here.

Kyle took great pride in his posts and in his early days with you guys, relived them endlessly for his brother and I. He was absolutely mental about the meets and put a lot of preparation into his cars for them.

I could tell he was conflicted when his second gen Intrepid took a dump and he wanted to still hang with you guys. After that, I think he fancied himself as an Intrepid purist and got an earlier car. I was so proud and impressed the way he updated it with later parts. That car was his pride and joy. Not because it was special or unique, but because he brought it back to life himself and made it just the way he wanted it.

A typical Kylism: When he was eight or ten, as we rode past a Chevy dealership he asked what my favorite new Z/28 color was. When I told him white with orange stripes, Kyle moaned back “Daaaaad, that’s SS only.”

If Kyle had any outstanding debts, owed anyone parts, or has open issues of any kind, please do not be shy and get in touch with me through Dan. Likewise, if anyone has any questions, thoughts or concerns about Kyle, nobody enjoys talking about him more than me.

For those of you that got Kyle’s sense of humor, he will still make me laugh every day for the rest of my life.



Steve Meyer

What Mr. Meyer said there made me feel really good inside. As I told many of you guys off the boards, Kyle was like our little brother. He never said it outright, but he looked up to us. It makes me feel good that even though I may have not heard it directly that I could/may have impacted his life somehow and maybe it changed him for the better.

Kyle, we'll meet again someday, I am sure I am gonna need some help one day up there...and thats how to change/rebuild a tranny. :)

RIP Ginger.

It's Kyle's dad, Steve.

I've belonged to an Internet forum for over a decade, and know that Internet friends are real too.

Kyle got his start on the Kaw Triples forum, and I was proud as hell to see how thoughtful and articulate his writing was there, and how much he wanted to help.

I can assure you, Kyle was not a helpful person around the house, so it was great to see that he had those traits, he just chose to use them somewhere else.

It was easy to watch him mature with you guys, and many of you really were like his big brothers. With so many things for a parent to worry about, a kid talking cars is a godsend.

I would be honored to meet any of you who can attend his funeral. I will be a mess and have lots to do, but please introduce yourself to me and tell me you knew Kyle from the forum.

I just suddenly remembered he and I cruised to Walmart together last spring. He was so proud of his ultra rare roll up windows. Spent most of the time talking shop about his 2G to 1G modifications. I made sure to get a picture of his car next to Tom's last night because in my mind, they were both just as beautiful - both had a ton of wrench time into them, and both were loved by their owners. I got a bigger kick out of riding in Kyle's car than I would have riding in Tom's.

I know there are pictures out there from the meet at my place, but I didn't take many. I have one with Kyle in it. I know there are others.

Hi, this is Kyle's mom. I check in, periodically, to see your comments and just wanted to thank you for the new pics. In looking at the pics of the meets, I want to share with you one that I remember the most. That was the second meet Kyle went to, down in Shaumburg Ill. He was ready to prove himself that he was a man to me, and he was insisted that he go it alone. I told him, I could go with, go shopping and you could pick me up when you are done. Being 17, and a fairly inexperienced driver, I was not thrilled with the idea of him driving the Suburban Chicago expressway on his own, but I let him spread his wings, just a little bit more and allowed him to go. As my memory serves me, he left our house, at about 10 in the morning, to get down there by noon. He didn't get home until after 2am that night. As any frantic mother would be, I remember calling him at 9pm and asking him, "when will you be home?" He said, "I'm on my way". Little did I know, what he meant by, "I'm leaving now", meant, he and the guys were heading to downtown Chicago. I remember calling him at 11pm, trying to get in touch with him, and he had turned his phone off, implying, "mom, you're embarrassing me". I remember when he got home, he was so excited and he told me it took him a little longer because he got lost, and scrambled to the computer to show me the pics of where he went. From that day forward, I knew I had lost my little boy and he was turning into a young man. I never had to worry about him drinking or doing drugs...he only wanted to be with people who shared the same interest in the love of their LH cars as much as he did.

I'm not sure who was at that meet, but I know it was back in 2008. The pics are posted, somewhere on this site, and it would be fun to see them again. I particularly like the one of the group of guys standing at the field museum.

Hahaa.....Jeanne, he was in my car...riding to downtown Chicago that night....I can remember his phone ringing over and over..dont remember much of the convos, but remember hearing "mooooommmmm".....(I remember thinking, shes gonna kill us...Kyle um??) I also remember, this was the first time I met Kyle....and everyone at the meet had decided to check out downtown chicago that night...he rode with me, and I handed him the radio remote...said put on whatever you like...I got to handle this traffic...and he put on Metallica....he didnt say a word for the rest of the drive.......

I haven't been a member here for very long, and I have not posted a lot of questions. I didn't know Kyle personally, but I did through his posts. I've done countless searches on DI for everything under the sun from window regulators to strut questions to electrical problems. MegaTrep's posts were always there. He even chimed in on a couple of my posts when I had questions for which I was seeking answers. Obviously, for such a young man, he knew a great deal about cars, and especially Intrepids. He will be missed. Although I'm double his age, I guess that a young dog can teach an old dog new tricks sometimes. RIP Kyle.

I don't know where this came from, someone named Strangis heard it and recorded it as John Wayne spoke at the funeral of director Howard Hawks in 1977

"Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hust,I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft star that shines at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there.

I did not die.


Carried this clipping since my son passed Jean, and my wifes brothers son also.
All way before their time and all way before us.

Take care of yourself and family now they need you more than ever and everyone knows you did everything you could for Kyle.

Wow, I had to go back for a few edits, couldn't hold back either.

It never gets easier you just have to do the best you can. Remember those good times and cherish those memories.

Rest in Piece Brother Kyle, you were here for only a short time, but, to those of us who knew you and where lucky enough to have met you, we shall rest easy that when it is our time to go, that we will be with you once again.
They say time heals all wounds, I can only pray this to be true, my heart felt and deepest sympathy to his family. I pray that in their time of need they turn to God and ask for the pain to be removed and the emptyness by their loss filled with the joy that Kyle gave to them. I know what is like to lose a father,but, to lose one of my 2 boys would kill me inside, I can only lift them up in prayer.
This was one of the 2 Quote on the funeral cards at my fathers funeral, the other was the Traditional Irish Blessing, which I have both.

This is still hard for me to believe. Kyle used to hang out at my house regularly, and was the only reason why i kept my lhs. I even brought a used motor to do a swap with him, which he talked me into about a week before this happend. I feel lost without him, and i dont even know if im even capable of doing such a task without him. He will be missed very much by me, and was probably the only reason i actually stayed with the lh community. I wish i could have went to one of the meets that he tried so hard to get me to goto. :crying:

On behalf of myself, my family and friends, please accept our sincerest condolences.
I havent been on these board a lot lately, and was truly upset when I heard about Kyle's accident from Shawn. I jumped on line to get the update and I was holding out a lot of hope Kyle would pull through.
I've shared this event with my family and friends and my teenage daughter, who I seem to be worried about all the time. I guess all parents stuggle with watching thier children grow up - but this kind of tragedy makes it feel all the more real that these things are very difficult to accept when they happen. My thoughts and prayers go out to Kyle's family.
We are so sorry for your loss.
God Bless............

sadly this is the only video i have saved of kyle at my house trying to figure out why my tail pipes kept smoking. If you listen closely you can hear him talking and also see his black avenger in the right corner of the camera parked :-(

....I'm not sure who was at that meet, but I know it was back in 2008. The pics are posted, somewhere on this site, and it would be fun to see them again. I particularly like the one of the group of guys standing at the field museum.

As you requested ma'am...

X2... Not exactly something that you take video of or pictures at... I'm sure it was 99% emotion and feeling, and not something that can really be put to words...

Hey guy's havent been around for a cpl weeks myself due to Family related issues, I knew Kyle was involved in an accident from talking to Tom, and like ive read I thought he was gettin better.I have personally met Kyle a cpl times in the past 2 yrs, I was there when he was talking to Art about buying the 1st gen, and thinking to myself this "kid" must be crazy, but after seeing it a year later at Dan's meet, I knew that from the moment he seen it he had alot of good intentions for it. Kyle may you rest in peace, and keep an eye on all of us !!!!

I wonder if Kyle is Lonely? I know i miss seeing his posts, or at least a pm from him once in a while
it kinda left a empty place here

Do you suppose dead 2.7s go to the same heaven we do? He'll have plenty of company if so! Hell, I bet 2.7s make 300 HP at the wheels in heaven! :love: The forum sure is quieter without him. :explore:

I have been out of state for a couple of weeks so I am saddened to hear of Kyle's passing. I only met him once at Art's meet last year, and him jumping for joy when Art sold him the 1st gen he had. I also had the privilage of him working on my car at the same meet. He will be greatly missed. RIP my Friend.

Got my mail from Art this morning from Kyles memorial, made the mistake of opening it before work. It hit me hard. Going to be a tough day.
RIP Kyle.

RIP Kyle.

Werd...very well written, a great tribute to Kyle. Had to turn on the windshield wipers while reading it.

Adding this poem, 8-8-2010:

There was a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the beginning to the end

He noted that first came her date of her birth
And spoke the following date with tears
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years

For that dash stands for all the time
That she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not how much we own;
The cars the house the cash
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard.
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
That can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
To consider what's true and real
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.

We'd be less quick to anger
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect
And more often wear a smile
Remembering that this special dash
Might only last a little while.

So when your eulogy is being read
With your lifes actions to rehash
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash?

Cos that dash stands for all the time
That you spent alive on earth
And only those who loved you
Know what that little line is worth

It matters not how much you own
The cars the house the cash
What matters is how you live and love
And how you spend your dash

What matters is how you live and love
And how you spend your dash.

I never knew the man but I send my condolances to the family. He was very young.

I'm wondering what kind of accident he was involved in? Was he hit by a drunk driver?

Rest in peace, Kyle. The respect you earned here was quite an accomplishment. A tribute to the kind of guy you were.

A 17 yr old driving a pick up turned in front of Kyles motorcycle, he never had a chance to stop
