Obituary for Kyle Lee Patterson

Kyle Patterson, 35, went to be with the Lord on June 9th, 2022, in Fort Pierce, FL. He was born in Orlando and raised in Christmas, Fl. Kyle grew up showing steers and playing baseball. He attended Abraham Baldwin Agriculture College on a baseball scholarship and graduated with his AAS in Criminal Justice. In 2007 at 19, Kyle graduated from Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy. He was a Law Enforcement Officer/ Resource Protection Unit until 2012, when he became an Investigator. His last title was Senior Investigator. 

Kyle was passionate about God, his family, cattle, and the youth. He attended Christ Fellowship and belonged to many organizations, including St. Lucie County Farm Bureau, The Florida Cattlemen’s Association, and The Simmental association. 

He was a Christian, and upon his passing this message was found on his phone, and I believe he would have liked to share it with everyone. “I want all who read this to know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and there is no doubt in my mind that upon death, I will enter into heaven. I will do so not on my own worthiness but through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Savior, and His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. I ask that my children and grandchildren share God’s Word with everyone and to always remember how much you’re loved, knowing that God will provide for you. I encourage you to place your faith in Christ alone and never trust the world for your comfort. I look forward to seeing you again in the life hereafter, where we will all live together with our Lord and Savior. May God grant you peace and love and strength as He guides you through this life. And then, at the end of time, we will be reunited in heaven as a happy family seeing Jesus face to face.”

Kyle is survived by his wife, Alisha Patterson of Fort Pierce, FL; children, Kole and Kinsley Patterson, also of Fort Pierce, FL; mother and father, Shannon and Michael Patterson of Christmas, FL; and sisters, Elizabeth Martin of Winter Park, FL and Crystal Patterson of Christmas, FL.
