“In the end
these things matter most:
How well did you love?
How fully did you live?
How deeply did you let go?”
“• Jack Kornfield
It’s common for people to remember only the good things about those they’ve lost, but with Kyle the simple truth is that he was made up entirely of good things. Kyle truly dedicated his life to helping others. As a child living in Arizona, he was always kind to others and looked out for his younger brother, making sure nobody ever felt excluded. As a young adult, he attended NAU where he obtained his undergraduate degree in education. It came as no surprise to anyone who knew Kyle that he would choose a career focused on supporting and motivating others. That university was also the meeting place of his adoring wife, Rachael, with whom he shared 19 amazing years of friendship.
After 4 years of teaching in Arizona, Kyle and Rachael married and set up their fairytale life together in Orange County, California, which is where they were privileged with 14 years of wedded bliss and countless adventures together. After obtaining his first masters degree at USC, Kyle began his 10-year career as a special education teacher for teenagers with learning disabilities and emotional disorders. During this time, Kyle also completed a Doctorate in Education through USC. His experience working as a special educator led him to his ultimate calling as a psychotherapist dedicated to helping families make the most of their lives with children living with disabilities. During all of this time and while acquiring so many accomplishments, Kyle still spent his free time supporting others; friends, family, students, and new acquaintances alike were all beneficiaries of Kyle’s seemingly endless compassion. Having obtained 3 graduate degrees and successfully running his own therapy practice, Kyle’s humility never ceased to amaze those he worked with. Everything he worked for was for the greater good, regardless of how much sacrifice was required.
In the 40 remarkable years that Kyle graced this world, he left a trail of pure loving kindness and joy that will certainly have a continuing impact on everyone who has had the honor to know him, work with him, and love him.
Kyle left this world on June 29th, surrounded by those who knew him best and loved him profoundly. He is survived by his wife Rachael (along with their 4 rescued doggies), his mother Darlene, brother Andrew, and father James. His memory is also survived by his dearest friends who have been like loving family to Kyle and Rachael over their lifetime together.

  4. Dr. Erwin was so important to the special needs community. In the short time I knew him, I could tell his heart grew bigger each time he worked with an individual to help them make sense of their world. He even stopped by my school to meet with me on behalf of a client in need. We were beginning a journey together on behalf of this client when the shocking news of his sudden medical condition emerged.

    I hope all of his friends and family know of the incredible gift he possessed and that every life he touched will miss him. May his memory be for a blessing.
