Kyler is a superhero to his family and all those who had the privilege to know him. Kyler’s superhero power is his smile and the ability to be happy in the face of extreme adversity. He inspired us to smile and move forward, accepting life’s challenges without complaint. Kyler is a strong willed, fun loving boy with a quick wit who won people’s hearts with his smile and giggle. Kyler’s influence on people brought family, friends, and strangers closer to Christ through service.
Kyler was courageous and fought valiantly against an unknown, undiagnosed neurodegenerative disease and most assuredly won his battle. At the young age of six, Kyler was given back into his Heavenly Parents’ care Sept. 10, 2019, surrounded by his loving family.
Kyler is remembered and loved by his parents, Derek Robbins Johnson and Sandy Janae Johnson; and by his siblings, Jadon Dee Johnson, Jarrett Dean Johnson, Ramey Grace Johnson, and Derek Trey Johnson. Also, his grandparents, Dee Lafaun Johnson, Christine Johnson, Dean Bowles Ward, and Toni Holly Ward. He is also remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
A viewing for the public will be held Friday, Sept. 13, 2019, from 6 to 8 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Grantsville 13th Ward Chapel, 410 Shelley Lane, Grantsville, Utah. Funeral services will be held Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019, at 11 a.m. at the same location.
In honor of Kyler, the family will be wearing something blue, Kyler’s favorite color, at the funeral. The family invites all who would like to join them to wear something, anything, blue in color which we’re sure would bring a smile to Kyler’s face.
Interment will be held at the Grantsville City Cemetery, 370 W. Main St., Grantsville, Utah, immediately following the funeral services.
