Devine, K - Obituary Photo

The creator called home KYLE OSBORN DEVINE on April 28, 2015 along with his girlfriend Clarissa Michelle English and her brother Dakota Julius English.

Kyle was born at the Foothills Hospital, Calgary, on December 17, 1987. He is survived by his loving parents Allen “Boyie” and Kristi Devine; brothers and sisters Geronimo (Kerri); Nathan; Ian (Melissa); and their children Kiara, Treyton and Derozen; Clifford; Erin “MaryJane”, Tamara (Safraz) and their children Joseph, Aisha and Amirah and Angel. Surviving paternal uncles and aunts are Homer (Gloria), Bruno (Shelley), Edna, Alice (Bernie), Rena and Agnes (Johnny), and maternal uncles and aunts Brent, Daniel (Randa), Wesley (Jody), Shelley, Noreen (Wes) Julie (Thomas), Beverly (Rick), and Sandra (Jason). He is also survived by his loving adopted parents Gary and Mary Allison.

He was predeceased by his loving mother Jaqueline Crazy Bull (’07), maternal grandparents John and Stella Crazy Bull, paternal grandparents Mike Sr. and Mary Devine, best friend/brother Allen Joshua (’08), triplet siblings Clayton, Clinton & Bonnie, paternal aunts Maryanne Smith and Dorothy Devine; paternal uncles Michael Devine Jr. and Gabriel “Gabby” Devine, maternal aunts Yvonne, Joanne, Marlene and Darlene Crazy Bull. In addition, Kyle has relatives all over the Blackfoot Confederacy; he was part of a huge family.

Kyle was a gentle young man, full of the joy of living. His Blackfoot heritage was a huge source of pride and he smiled from ear to ear when his Dad (Boyie) told him he was a direct descendent of Chief Red Crow. He was a talented grass dancer and once followed the powwow trail. He took great pride in his appearance, grooming carefully and choosing his clothing meticulously. The Chicago Bulls were his favourite team and he frequently wore caps and shirts sporting their logo. Kyle played basketball for his Coalhurst school and loved many other sports. Watching horse racing with foster Dad, Gary, was a cherished activity. He also loved the outdoors; he and best friend Jamie loved to hike when and wherever they could.

Kyle was a loving and devoted Uncle who doted on his nieces and nephews. He was the first to visit and hold nephew Derozen after his birth, even beating out the eager Grampa Allen. Kyle was extremely generous; he had a talent for picking out the perfect gift. His gentle and kind-hearted nature was evident in everything Kyle did and family members were amazed to realize that they never saw Kyle lose his temper. His gentle nature was obvious when Kyle interacted with animals, especially dogs, which were very important in his life.

Kyle was a very hard worker. He was employed at Flexahopper where he impressed with his diligence and received several promotions. The management of Flexahopper even lowered their flag to half mast when they heard about Kyle’s passing. His quiet charisma and humorous way of telling stories attracted people to Kyle who quickly trusted and befriended him.

Kyle will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. There are no words for “Good-bye” in the Blackfoot language; instead people say “Kitaakitamattsino”, which translates “See you again”. We know we will see Kyle again when he welcomes us into the heavenly place he now calls home.
