Kyle Alexander was born October 15, 1986 to Paul and Laquetta (Poulton) Hentges in Tulsa, OK. He graduated from St. Peter High School in 2005. Kyle attended Gustavus Adolphus College, Oklahoma State University, Mankato State University, University of Texas, and Austin Community College. He had worked for Laquetta, Inc., The Steele Horse, PF Changs, Affordable Housing Development, LLC, modeled for Etiquette Vintage Design, had written for Google, Inc., and most recently was planning on becoming financial advisor and manager for the fashion designer, Wahb, and his U.S. women's swimwear line. Kyle loved to read and write and was always learning new things and using that knowledge to make a difference in the lives of others. Kyle was also very interested in politics. He was very confident in his political views and rather than be swayed, he preferred to do the swaying. Not only was Kyle intellectual, but also caring and comical. He loved helping anyone in need during rough times and that showed how loving and compassionate of a person he was. He cared for his close friends in Austin as if they were family. Kyle was imaginative, creative, inspiring, and definitely comical and animated. As the talented actor that he was, Kyle would do satire and skits, such as "I Hate Chad Denburrough." He had won in online votes for Austin's Waste Management contest to rename their facilities. His entry, "The Fred Durst Center for Humanities and Arts" became so popular that even the local news, CNN and MTV picked it up. Kyle was a member of an exclusive group called IPB. His mother, Laquetta was the first female member of the group because he thought she was the coolest lady he knew. Kyle loved his family, his friends, his God, was always smiling, and had a personality that drew everybody and even animals to him. He will be dearly missed by all.
Kyle is survived by his mother, Laquetta of St. Peter; brother, Ryan of Tulsa, OK; maternal grandparents: Dean and Mary Spurling of Pharoah, OK; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and numerous friends.
Kyle was preceded in death by his father, Paul in 2011; paternal grandparents: Donald and Dorrae Hentges; and uncle, Joe Hentges in 2005.
