He was involved in Pittsfield Producer 4-H Club and showed Chester white hogs. They won many awards including Illinois State Fair Grand Champion gilt hog that the Woods farm raised that year. Kyle entered an essay contest by the Spot Association and won a spotted gilt. That started his spotted swine herd. Jeff and Kyle would often talk about all their experiences while going to county fair, going up and down the highways while showing their hogs. We equipped the farm machinery with a lift to put Kyle in so he could operate the equipment and he greatly enjoyed it. He was a very intelligent individual who did the farm records for the farming operation. He enjoyed working with fertilizer and seed companies to make plans for our farming operation. He was an avid farm toy collector.
Kyle had worked at the FSA Farm Service office for a short time. He was a member of the Barry United Methodist Church.
