Kyle attended NMSU and graduated with a degree in civil engineering. He became a Professional Engineer in 2012 and worked as a structural engineer in the oil field industry. He met and married his soulmate, Katelynn, in 2013. He was a faithful husband who loved his wife well. They welcomed a daughter, Kylynn Grace, into the world in 2017. He loved being a father and delighted in teaching and spending time with his "little lovey." His daughter was his pride and joy. 

 

Kyle Burnett was a man after God's own heart. He was heavily involved with his Bible study and Church community. His faith was vital to him, and he loved talking with people about what God was doing in their lives and encouraging them to grow closer to Him. Kyle was a faithful man. He was steadfast and loyal, with unwavering faith in his Savior, and had a character of true grit and perseverance that propelled him through every challenge and problem he faced. He was calm and consistent, a thinker who often had a quiet word of wisdom for those seeking his counsel. 

 

Kyle tackled everything he put his mind and energy towards with excellence. He was a hard worker who strained for precision and perfection in every task. Mechanically minded and gifted in business, Kyle consistently proved to be a reliable and trustworthy steward with everything in his care. He loved seeing projects he designed fully constructed, whether in the oil field or his garden. He took great satisfaction in seeing his work come to life. Kyle was passionate about helping people. Whether assisting in writing a resume or designing engineering solutions for any challenge, Kyle jumped at opportunities to serve others with his many gifts. He loved helping family and friends, utilizing his structural design skills to plan out buildings and bridges. When spending time with him, he made everyone feel like they were the most important person in the world. Everyone who knew Kyle loved him. His winsome personality drew people in and blessed many around him with his huge heart to love people.

 

Spending time with his wife and daughter, "his girls," as he called them, was one of his favorite activities. Whether they snuggled and watched a movie or went on an adventure, he treasured every moment with them. Kyle also loved quality time with family and friends, talking, laughing, joking, enjoying good food, or helping with projects, especially outdoor activities. He loved spending time with both his mom's family and his dad's family. Kyle dearly loved his brother, Wesley, and whether they were hunting in the wilderness or working on home projects, he highly valued that time. His many nieces and nephews also held a special place in his heart, and he found unique ways to connect with each of them individually. 

 

Kyle loved the outdoors, taking every opportunity to go hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, kayaking, and exploring the incredible beauty of God's creation. He loved the adventure and challenge of his summer job as a wilderness "hot shot" firefighter. He treasured family vacations, especially two trips to Hawaii with his wife and a memorable Alaska fishing trip with his dad and brother. He enjoyed every minute spent in the mountains and loved staying in his cabin in Ruidoso, NM. Kyle loved learning and was always researching new skills, concepts, and interests. He had a lot of knowledge across many disciplines and loved explaining how things work. He loved cooking on the smoker, trying new recipes, and exploring the best ways to grow vegetables in his garden.  Kyle lived a life of dedication, hard work, and faithful service to God and his family.
