"It was the darkest day in my life when my husband of 55 years passed away. I didn’t know what to do or where to go but I knew I wanted him buried at Fairhaven. I called them and they put me touch with our Family Service Counselor. She helped and guided us with love and compassion.

Sincerely,
Jean Hamann & Family

Kyle Lamont Bischoff

Kyle Lamont Bischoff

November 25, 1957-April 3, 2014  

Kyle Bischoff, a 55-year resident of Southern California passed away in the comfort of his home in Rancho Santa Margarita Ca, under the tender care of his beloved family on the morning of April 3rd, 2014. Born in 1957 to parents Garth and Sheril Bischoff in Oak Harbor, Washington.   Kyle lived an engaging life harvesting the tenets of service and family as the cornerstone to his days.  

Growing up Kyle divided time between his California hometown of Costa Mesa with summers spent at the Bischoff homestead in the rustic area of Dingle, Idaho. This duality fostered a special appreciation for what these distinctive cultures had to offer a young man. It was Dingle; with its majestic Bear Lake ensconced in the Wasatch Range Mountains that would cement a passion for the outdoors in the child. Kyle’s desire for hiking, camping, fishing, and hunting became rooted in his personality. He would often refer to these times with a smile as the good ol’ days.  

In his teenage years he became enthralled with basketball and volleyball. Kyle would graduate Estancia High School in 1976.  As an adult he loved to share these healthy hobbies with the youth if only to see the joy brought about by “good clean fun”.  Uncle Kyle, as many would come to know him later in life, was always available to shoot some hoops or take an impromptu fishing trip with his nieces and nephews.  

In 1980, Kyle would make what he commonly referred to as “the best decision I ever made” in marrying his lovely Susan.  Kyle steadily developed into the quintessential family man and the patriarch of his family. He often credited this success to the remarkable nature of his dear wife Sue, as he called her.  It was Kyle’s sincere belief that his Sue was not only his true love and soul mate; but the perfect expression of womanhood. Kyle and Susan would have five children together, four girls and one boy. They became known for their loving and accepting home.  

Kyle was an avid reader with a lifelong quest for knowledge. For Kyle, knowledge was power. He impressed this idea on all who would listen. Countless days and nights were spent learning and dissecting subjects. Kyle saw education as a personal responsibility that directly correlated to success in life. This philosophy came to fruition in numerous entrepreneurships throughout his life. Kyle enjoyed his work and achievements in the payphone industry and restaurant partnerships.  

Kyle’s sense of humor and words of encouragement will be missed by all who knew him. He lived his life boldly and candidly, facing death just the same. We love him and will always remember the life he gave us.  

Kyle Lamont Bischoff is survived by his wife and best friend Susan Evans Bischoff; five children Jaymi Bischoff, Cayleen Haynie, Douglas Lamont Bischoff, Heidi Jube, and Kelli Bischoff.  He is responsible for 3 grand children with many more to come.  

Kyle Lamont Bischoff will be laid to rest in Wardboro Cemetery in Dingle, Idaho.
