Kyle Richard McNeil, born on December 26, 1989, in Sylmar, California, and passed away on August 16, 2023, at the age of 33. He leaves behind a legacy of love, strength, and cherished memories. Kyle's parents, Cynthia Annison and Joseph McNeil, were blessed with his arrival, and his life journey took him from the sun-soaked streets of California to the heartland of Grundy Center, Iowa. Kyle's early life was marked by a move to Iowa with his father and stepmother when he was around 11 years old. He quickly adapted to his new surroundings and thrived, ultimately graduating from Grundy Center High School. His passion for driving led him to further his education at Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, where he obtained his CDL, setting the stage for a career that would merge his love for the road with his strong work ethic. It was amidst the everyday hustle that fate intervened, leading Kyle to a chance encounter that would change his life forever. At a gas station in an unexpected twist of destiny, he held the door open for a stranger named Billie Jo Beier. Their connection was instantaneous, and as if guided by a higher force, Billie Jo asked for his number. This encounter blossomed into a beautiful love story, and on April 13, 2018, Kyle and Billie Jo exchanged vows at her mother's home in Lawler, IA. Kyle's journey as a family man began earlier when he met Kimberly Perry in 2012. Their laughter filled their days, and together they welcomed a daughter named Amarah. The family moved to Weslaco, TX, and while their paths later diverged, their bond remained everlasting. Shortly after, Kyle found his way to Waterloo, where he met Billie Jo and began writing a new chapter in his life. Kyle's vibrant personality and passions were evident to all who knew him. He was an avid car enthusiast, dedicating countless hours to his Ford Ranger, attending car meets, and immersing himself in the world of racing. His faith was a cornerstone of his life, as he tirelessly sought spiritual growth and deepened his relationship with Jesus and God. He read the Bible cover to cover, embodying his dedication to his faith. Above all, Kyle will be remembered for his unwavering commitment to his family. His love knew no bounds, and his dedication to providing for his loved ones and being a loving father was an inspiration to all. The tight-knit family he nurtured meant the world to him, and his presence will forever be felt in the hearts of those he leaves behind. Kyle Richard McNeil's memory lives on in the stories he shared, the love he gave, and the lives he touched. He leaves behind a legacy of family, faith, and the profound impact of a life lived with purpose. As we say goodbye to a beloved son, husband, father, and friend, we hold onto the joy he brought into our lives and find solace in the knowledge that his spirit will forever guide and watch over us.

  11. I never met Kyle, but his stepmother, Linda, who continued to raise him even after his dad passed away, loved him as much as she loved her own children. She had and has nothing but wonderful things to say about him and his family over the years, and I know she loved his children as well. They always had a great relationship from what I knew, and she was an important part of his life, despite not being included in his obituary.

  12. I have very fond memories of Kyle when he lived in California. He was a very delightful, sensitive, and special person/soul. He will be missed. I send my love and prayers to all the family and friends of Kyle. May his soul find peace and happiness in the heavens.

    Aunt, Debbie

Knowing that our Heavenly Father cradles Kyle, and his loving family, brings needed comfort. Until we meet again.
