Kyle Edward Wojciechowski, SPC, 22, of Colorado Springs, CO, formerly of Tallmadge, died of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on Saturday, May 2, 2020, in Colorado Springs. Kyle, affectionately known as “Wojo,” was born March 6, 1998, in Youngstown, Ohio. He was raised in Boardman until moving to Tallmadge in 2008. Kyle was a 2017 graduate of Tallmadge High School, where he studied in the auto body and collision repair program and participated in wrestling. Kyle enlisted in the United States Army and was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, MO, for Basic Combat Training and earned the rank of Private First Class. At the completion of Advanced Individual Training, Kyle was based at Fort Carson, CO, working as an 88M (transportation operator). In 2019, he was sent to Kuwait. Kyle also served on the honor guard, where he was a proud recipient of the military challenge coins. Kyle was posthumously promoted to the rank of Specialist.
An outdoorsman, Kyle enjoyed target shooting, camping anywhere and everywhere, and fishing. He looked forward to his family’s annual tradition of open day trout fishing in Wattersonville, PA, with his father, grandfather, Henry and sister, Holly. Kyle took pleasure in all outdoor sports including skateboarding, dirt bikes, and especially snowboarding, often sharing with family and friends his desire of working at a ski resort as a ski patrolman. A proverbial thrill seeker, Kyle also pursued finding that ultimate adventure in zip lining, rock climbing, cliff diving and skydiving. Music was another love of Kyle’s and he was always up for a good concert or music festival and will be fondly remembered forever playing “Why III Love the Moon” at his family’s pool along with his favorite phrase, “loosen up, dude.”
Kyle will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, honesty and fun wit and will be sadly missed by his loving family and friends.
