In Loving Memory of Kyotee Bertsch
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Kyotee Bertsch, a beloved son, brother, uncle, and friend, who left us all too soon at the age of 35. Kyotee’s journey began in Port Angeles, WA, where he spent his early years surrounded by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. His school years were spent in Poulsbo and as he grew into adulthood, he ventured to Arlington where he continued to embrace the
wonders of nature that he held so dear.
Kyotee was born to his mother, Darlene Coste, and father, Bryan Bertsch. He shared a special bond with his sister, Angelyna Welch, and was a cherished half-brother to Alicia Reynolds. Kyotee’s presence in the lives of his family members will be deeply missed.
Kyotee was a man of many passions, and he lived his life with a zest for adventure that was contagious to all who knew him. He had an affinity for the great outdoors, finding solace and joy in topping trees, getting lost in the mountains, and hunting. He had a sweet tooth for candy bars and was known for his love of fishing, which led him to the pristine waters of Alaska on many trips.
Beyond his love for the outdoors, Kyotee was known for his unique sense of humor, generous heart, and a spirit of adventure that knew no
bounds. He had a knack for making people laugh with his goofy antics and a fun-loving attitude that made every moment spent with him
Kyotee was a hands-on individual, always engaged in a random project at home, tinkering, and working on vehicles.
Though Kyotee may no longer be with us in the physical sense, his spirit lives on in the hearts and memories of those who loved him. We will forever remember his infectious laughter, his adventurous spirit, and the way he brightened our lives with his presence.
A memorial service to celebrate Kyotee’s life will be held on October 14th.
