Kyle used to be a painter and decorator but could no longer carry on in this line of work because of his injuries from a car accident in 2008. He was due to start on a teaching assistant course later on this year. He also loved socialising and going out with his friends and family, he also enjoyed travelling, watching football and was an avid supporter of Manchester United. He was also the adventurous type and enjoyed trying new, extreme and all sorts of adventurous outdoor activities including sky diving.
Kyle leaves behind his dearly loved and devoted wife Roisin, his cherished children Cael-Lucas, Daegan and Alaena, his much loved dad Ricky Altimas, his dear half-sister Connie, his greatly loved siblings Kelly, Kirsty, Kelsey and Keaton as well as numerous aunties, uncles, nieces, nephew, cousins and in-laws.
“Kyle had a heart of gold and is loved and missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.”
His funeral service will take place on Friday 21st August, at 1.45pm at St Paul’s Church, Accrington prior to a private family committal at Accrington Crematorium. The family have asked for people to wear something bright and colourful or a Man Utd shirt. Family flowers only please, but donations are welcomed in memory of Kyle for Tom Cooper’s Journey with Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma. Roisin has chosen this charity as it is very dear to her and Kyle’s heart. Kyle and Roisin met Tom at a visit to Accrington & Rossendale College where he shared his journey of fighting cancer with them, she hopes the money will provide and create many happy memories in the time that Tom has left with his family, rather than it go to a larger, registered charity. Donations may be sent c/o Barton & Hallworth Funeral Service, The Old Foxhill, 136 Union Road, Oswaldtwistle. Tel: 01254 390542.
