Kyle John Hanley, age 76 of Clare, passed away Sunday, April 13, 2014 at the Trinity Health System in Steubenville, Ohio. Kyle was born the son of the late John and Ella (Richmond) Hanley on April 29, 1937 in Clare.
He graduated from Clare High School and attended Central Michigan University and Hamilton University before enlisting with the U.S. Marines; serving from 1957 to 1961. Most recently Kyle was working as a Land Agent in Ohio. Over the past 25 years his expertise allowed him to travel to multiple states including: South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Florida, Georgia and Texas. Many thanks to Kyle’s co-workers at Spectra Energy in Ohio for their splendid support and routine checks on Kyle while at the hospital.
Kyle left behind a lasting impression of being independent, loving to talk politics, being hard headed, an early riser, always well dressed. He will be remembered for having a huge laugh, being full of wisdom, loving his three daily newspapers from front to back, having a huge heart and being mischievous. A great friend of his Ebony said it best “a gentleman cut from the last great cloth of what real men were made of”.
Kyle is survived by his stepdaughter Brenda (Mark) Coan of Mt. Pleasant; step granddaughters Nicole and Jessica Coan both of Mt. Pleasant and longstanding friend Becky Chadwick of Harrison. Kyle was predeceased by his sister Arla Jean (Franklin) Drebert.
