In Loving Memory of
Kyle Russell Benedict
May 10, 2001 - July 22, 2019

Beloved big brother to his sister Aurora.
Only son of William Benedict
and Samantha Davis (partner Robert Parrell).
Also, best friend of Alex Van Der Doe,
all from Chatham, Ontario.
Grandson of John and Velma Benedict from Niagara Falls, Ontario and Cindy and the late Sam Davis
from Spring Bay, Ontario

Kyle loved to be with people, family and friends. He also enjoyed hanging out with his sister Aurora (Miss Lynn).

Kyle very much enjoyed playing hockey for about 8 years before he decided to dedicate his time fully to the Cadets.

He was a proud member of the 59th Legion Highlander Royal Canadian Army Cadets. He often talked of the 59th's achievements and buddies he had made in his army family.

He may not have known how many lives he touched in his short 18 years, but as his family and friends know, the number was great.

Kyle will be forever missed by his great uncles, great aunts and many uncles, aunts and cousins whether blood or loved.

Family and friends will gather
at the Providence Bay Community Centre
on Tuesday, July 30th, 2019 from 2-4PM and 7-9PM.
Funeral Service
will take place on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 2PM.

Kyle came into our family as a friend of Garrett's he met in Cadets. Throughout the year's Kyle, Will, Samantha and Aurora have embraced our family and Kyle will always have a place within our family as one of our own. Kyle will be remembered as a blessing from your family to our family. The stories, photos and memories that in time we could share with you, we can hope will bring comfort in knowing this amazing man with such a beautiful soul, is the beautiful gift shared out of a parent's Love. RIP Kyle as we have a wonderful reunion to look forward to.

To my dear friend Samantha, my heart goes out to go in the deepest way. A Mother's love is beyond compare. Yet, I loved him: that sweet boy who's hockey equipment out-weighed him, that crackly-voiced teenager that holed-up in his room to play video-games, and that respectable uniformed cadet that lead the way at Annual Inspection. I was so proud of the man he had become.
To William, I give you my deepest sympathies on the loss of your Son. I know you will carry fond memories of your time together. The love in your eyes and your gentle caress of the photographs you were showing me today are a testament to your bond.
My Aurorable, I am so sorry for the loss of your big brother. I will always be here to talk to you about him and about how much he loved you from the very start.

To all of you , I'm deeply sorry for your loss. Words can never completely cover it all. I will always remember him smiling laughing and playing in pool with his cousins and his great smile he was a quiet gentle kid that was always playing peacemaker and always offering to help out carry groceries or what not.I never saw him not smiling and helping others I watched him and his cousins grow up.Far to young to be gone. He had so much to live for and give.God recruits the good ones early to be Angel's. My prayer to you all is that you find peace knowing you have a got the greatest angel watching over you ever!! May you all know you will see him again in the Lords kingdom. I'm sorry Will and Marg and all of you. You are in my Trena

Kyle, I can't believe you're gone, I remember all the countless memories and stories shared from either of our expeditions. I miss you dearly brother and i won't ever forget all these times shared between us. To Kyle's family, Kyle was always speaking highly of you and truly did appreciate you all. You all have my condolences and will be in my thoughts.

We love you Kyle

Shocked to hear the news about Kyle. I taught him a number of times, truly enjoyed his warm personality and smile. We talked about many things. i know he wanted to be a police constable and how much he loved the island and visiting his family there. I can't imagine your grief. Kyle has been the first thing in my thoughts every day. I can't believe this has happened. I hope you find peace in the days to come.
