Spotlight on Flat Creek’s General Manager: Kyle!
(Thanks to Kyle’s wife, Katie, who helped answer some of these questions!)
Tell us a little about yourself…
Kyle is a great dad to his five kids – they love him dearly and he takes their teasing (especially about his misspelled words on Sunday Boggle game night) with his easy laughter!
His oldest is a daughter, who is 20, and attends Paul Mitchell Hair Academy. Next is his son, a graduating senior from high school who turns 18 in June and hopes to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints before fall. His almost 15-year-old daughter played for the JV softball team this year and will be a sophomore at Madison High School next year. His fourth child/third daughter is a sweetheart who loves to manage our family and go Saturday night grocery shopping with her dad (she will be turning 12 this summer). And last, but not least, is his almost 9-year-old son who just wants to ride his bike, play all day, and weekend wrestle his dad after working at his side on Saturdays.
Kyle’s wife of 20-years says that he is her dearest friend and she couldn’t imagine traveling this planet with anyone but him!
What is your favorite food and favorite movie?
Kyle loves cheesecake and sci-fi movies/shows, but his favorite movie of all time is The Man From Snowy River.
He makes The Best Hamburgers (his spoiled wife won’t even eat hamburgers anywhere else) and a delicious pizza (which his kids always ask for every weekend).
