Kyle J. Tennison, age 16 of Gatesville, was unexpectedly taken from us on April 27, 2019.  Funeral services are scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Saturday, May 4, 2019, at Coryell Community Church with burial following at Walker Cemetery in Ft. Hood.  Visitation will be 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Friday, at Scott’s Funeral Home.

Kyle was born in Columbia, MO to Jimmy Tennison and Amanda McDuffee.  He moved to Texas at an early age and attended school in Gatesville most of his life.  Kyle loved football and playing games with his family.  He enjoyed hanging out with his friends, playing paintball, going to Urban Air trampoline-park and playing video games.  Kyle had a pure heart and a lovable soul.  He would stand up for the underdog and never let anyone be bullied around him.  Always had smile on his face.  He loved to play poker and the lessons his dad would teach him playing cards.  Kyle liked the outdoors, shooting guns and fishing with family and friends. He was a thrill seeker, loved the roller coasters at Six Flags and the high slides at the water parks.  Kyle loved his family in Missouri and the time he was able to spend there, and learning the locksmith trade from his grandpa. Kyle had a best friend Zane, whom they shared some special bonds that had been formed throughout their short lives.  The family wishes to thank Zane for his special friendship with Kyle.  Kyle kept his love pouring out despite the hard times that he had to overcome during his life.  As his sister Megan said “He was perfect and pure in every way”.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Amanda McDuffee; grandmother, Janice Nail; and grandfather, Bill Tennison.
