Kye loved serving others, especially those who were experiencing hardship in their lives. As a volunteer at Scott Mission, he shared smiles and encouragement with everyone he met.
His death at 28 leaves a hole in many hearts. Many of his friends and loved ones shared their love and pain through an outpouring of online posts, which give insights into a short but well-lived life—
“I felt inspired around you . . .”
“He was brilliant, and his love was infectious . . .”
“He was very kind, caring, understanding, funny . . .”
His mother, Christine, chose to honour her son in a way that would bring hope and healing to others by adding Scott Mission to her will. She says, “He was a gift. The rarest gift. I’m blessed and grateful for my son.” Christine shared that Kye’s father, Chris Andreopoulos, would have been very proud of their son, too. Sadly, he succumbed to cancer in 2007, when Kye was just 14 years old.
Scott Mission is grateful to have known Kye—he was a friend to all. We extend our condolences to his mother and loved ones. You are in our prayers.
