Reid Michael KYFIUK was born on August 7th, 2000 in Powell River, BC and passed away on December 22, 2015 while snowboarding with his family at Mt. Washington on Vancouver Island.
Reid lit up the room with his zest for life. He always tried to make people laugh or feel better. Reid had a had a radiant smile that matched his contagiously happy and energetic spirit. He loved to be outside and would constantly remind others to take the time to have fun. When it came to sports, Reid had a warrior’s heart. He worked hard and his passion for whatever sport he was playing (hockey, golf or baseball) shone through to his coaches, his teammates and the fans.
Reid was also generous and kind. He always told his family that he loved them and wasn’t shy about doing it in public. He looked out for his parents; he’d wrestle Mom, but always made sure not to hurt her and he would take a bit of power off his knuckle ball so that he didn’t hurt Dad.
Reid maintained the faith of a little child. He had an unconditional love for God and a divine insight for how everyone should live. Reid’s sister say’s that his eyes were like a window into Heaven. Everyone loves him.
Left to cherish Reid are his parents Andy and Denise KYFIUK; his siblings Eric, Lauren, Dean, aTyler and Andrea; his Grandparents Mike and Helen KYFIUK; many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and countless friends.
Reid is not gone, he’s just living in a different place now. We can still talk to him, God just took him home.
