In Memory Of Kyle “Obie” Obuhanick’s

Content from Kyle’s Obituary

On Monday, October 4th, 2021, Kyle Obuhanick passed away at the age of 34.

A Profound and Meaningful Impact

Kyle was an amazing son, brother, uncle and friend–simply the best–and we will never forget the love, friendship, and infectious smile and laughter that he brought to all of us. He was passionate, kind, loving, supportive, giving and strong. If you were lucky enough to have met “Obie”, you know he had a huge heart and made the lives of everyone he came across better. In doing so, he made the most profound and meaningful impact one can during one’s short time here on earth.

Ice Hockey was His Passion

Kyle was born and raised in Carbondale, Colorado and attended Aspen High School before going to The Gunnery in Connecticut. He returned to Colorado and pursued his degree at Metropolitan State University of Denver. He was a man of many interests, but ice hockey was his passion from a very young age. He played through all the levels of the Aspen Junior Hockey program, and became a valuable leader on defense in his High School years. Everybody who ever played with him, or against him for that matter, will remember his toothy grin and his pure love for the sport.

A Littleton Hawk

After college, Kyle joined the Littleton Hockey Association, and since 2011 had dedicated himself to coaching and mentoring young players. He was beloved by his fellow coaches and by his players and their parents for his passion, leadership and generosity of spirit, and he made significant and lasting impressions on the development of hundreds of young men and women over the years. Kyle’s love and optimism were contagious and reverberated throughout the lives of his friends and family.

Keep His Loved Ones in Your Thoughts and Prayers

Kyle is survived by his mother Linda, older brother Cody, three nieces Paige, Hannah, and Fiona, and countless friends. Please keep Obie’s family in your thoughts and prayers. Hug your family and friends tighter. Kyle, you will always be remembered and loved. Thank you for being our Obie.
