Kyle T. Loveday, 37, of McMinn County, departed this life unexpectedly on July 28, 2023.
He was born on May 5, 1986, in Cleveland, Tennessee, to Kenny and Mitzi Rogers Loveday. Throughout life, Kyle had an affectionate personality that always garnered love and care from each person he encountered. At an early age, Kyle grew up loving to play sports, fish, and hunt when the opportunity arose. A Class of 2004 graduate of McMinn Central High School, Kyle excelled on the athletic fields and exceeded expectations in the classroom. After graduating high school, he received his Bachelor of Science in Nursing and was employed with Tennova Healthcare at the time of his death.
In most recent years, a few of his fondest memories included traveling to numerous destinations while enjoying the peaceful serenity the beach has to offer. Some of his greatest times came when he was able to spend time with his Rebel Force Pirates paintball team.
His most cherished gift was that of his two daughters, Kyleigh and Karleigh, who Kyle loved with all of his heart and truly considered the two of them to be his angels. Deeply loved and well respected by his family, friends, and colleagues, Kyle will be dearly missed by all who had the blessing to have known him.
Kyle was preceded in death by his grandparents, Junior and Helen Bramlett Rogers, and Kenneth and Mary Lou Loveday; great-grandparents, Hobart and Josie Bivens Loveday.

A host of cousins and dearly loved friends also survive.
