Kyle Krieg

31-year-old entrepreneur and mischief maker, beloved son of Lee and Pam Krieg. Annoying but well-loved brother to Natalie (Mike) Winkler and Ben Krieg. Devoted Uncle to Charles East, Nolan and Callum Winkler. Grandson to Edith Krieg, and the late Erv Krieg, Jack and Clarita Gindele. Leaving his loving family and many friends entirely too early, local and across the world. He traveled twice in recent years to Asia enjoying backpacking and meeting people. Kyle never met a stranger.

Kyle’s childhood was filled with Scouting, camping, fishing, and hunting. As he grew older, he began building unusual vehicles. He loved the outdoors, the family farm and Lake Cumberland. Kyle was fun loving, life of the party and always drawn to water which included his passion with boats. His last free weekend he was working on the family’s boat engine, his happiness was captured in the photo.

Kyle liked starting new businesses. He helped build The Manufactory, from the ground up, with his dad, brother, grandfather and uncles; ran Save the Gonads, as well as a few side businesses. Kyle enjoyed problem solving and assisted others in starting their own companies. He was an active member of the Nation of Makers; participating in Washington DC, despite a broken hip and on crutches. He was active with multiple fundraisers to help those in need, especially mental health. His final gift was to donate his organs, helping more than 70 people. Thank you to all who have donated to suicide awareness and have signed for organ donation because of Kyle.

Our hearts are sad and there will always be an empty space until we see him again.

He is missed and loved by many. Remember to hold those you cherish as every day could be their last.

Lee, Pam, Ben & Natalie

Donations can be made in Kyle’s name to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention or to a charity of your choice.
