Cyle was born Sept 14, 1983 to Scott and Sandy Anderson. Cyle's grandpa Anderson wanted his initials to be CCA after his own father, Chester Cleveland Anderson,,,I wanted to name him Kyle,, so we compromised and Cyle it was.
He was welcomed home by big brother Curtis Scott Anderson.
Cyle started pre-school in Kirk, and graduated from the Liberty School class of 2002.
He enlisted in the United States Army a short time after that, and in December of 2002 he left for his basic training that he completed at Fort Knox, Kentucky. He was then sent to Baumholder, Germany
He was stationed in Kuwait at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait and then served in the green zone at FOB Falcon in Iraq. Cyle was part of the 101st Airborn 1st Armored Tank Division as a 19K10 M1 Armor Crewman, and operated the M1 A-1 Abrams tanks. He liked Army life, not so much the active duty. But the travel, experiences, and friendships he gained from all over Europe and the world.
He was honorably discharged from active duty in February 2007 and continued his inactive service until March of 2011. He received an honorable discharge and the Army Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War On Terrorism Medal, Army Service Ribbon, and the Overseas Service Ribbon.
He met the love of his life, Kristen (Korf) Anderson, in Burlington when she was 17 and he 18 afterwards continuing a friendship for the next 5yrs. They began their life and marriage together while he was still overseas in the fall of 2006. Their 15yrs brought with it their daughter Maggie Elisabeth in November 2007 and last but not least Bristol Kay in July 2016. Cyle knew and told Kristen’s friend Jess Buck that he would eventually marry her. And it had felt like a fated and destined life after that.
Cyle and Kristen lived in Canon City where Maggie was born from March 2007-December 2008, and moved with his job to Salida after that. They stayed in Salida until just after Maggie turned 4yrs and moved back east to Burlington in December 2011.
Cyle had worked as a cook at Village Inn , assistant manager at Sherwin Williams in Canon City then also in Salida, He worked in the meat department for Safeway in Burlington, and then as a driver and tech for Aerocare in Burlington.
Cyle enjoyed working with people and never knew a stranger. He enjoyed making friends and keeping up with all of his old friends.
Cyle loved his family and would always try to lend a helping hand. His daughters and wife were so important to him. Maggie & Bristol were always his greatest accomplishments and he was the proudest, most loving dad. Playing princesses and giving pony rides was never out of the question.
He enjoyed family gatherings and there were some hotly contested Wahoo games between him and Maggie especially. Cyle and his girls also loved to play basketball in their back yard. And as a family Cyle, Kristen, Maggie & Bristol loved to play Mario Kart on the Nintendo as the Yoshi family. Always filled with taunting, trash talk, high fives and lots of laughs, even victory dances from Bristol
One of his favorite holidays was 4th of July. He always had a stash of fireworks on hand just waiting to be set off.
He enjoyed hunting, 4-wheeling, camping and being in the mountains near Salida and spending time with his family.
Cyle had an infectious smile, warm hazel eyes, a kind heart and loving spirit. He is gone way too soon, and has left a void that will never be filled.
He is survived by wife Kristen, daughters Maggie and Bristol, mom Sandy, dad Scott, niece Emery & nephews Cody & Bryson, mother in law Paula, sisters in law Amber & Kadie, brother in law Kale, aunts, uncles, cousins and his friends who were really just more of his extended family.
He was proceeded in death by his brother Curtis, his granny Madonna, Grandpa Guy Anderson, Grandmother Margaret Felix and Grandpa Wayne Curtis.
