Kyle Ascension Garza, 18, of Billings, was tragically taken from us all too soon on July 19, 2019. He was born November 27, 2000 in Billings, the son of Rob Garza and Christina Small-Garza. He attended Poly Drive Elementary, Lewis & Clark Middle School and graduated from Billings Senior High in 2019. Kyle played football and baseball during his youth years. He loved the outdoors which included skateboarding, skiing, camping, and spending time with friends and family. He loved music and playing video games. He enjoyed his time in Sidney, MT and spent many summers and holidays there with his Grandma Cheryl, Aunt Tracie, Megan and Shanan. He had a very special bond with his Grandma Cheryl. He was her rock during her time at Mayo, and she was always there for Kyle. Among the many trips Kyle took with his family, his favorites were his time at Huntington Beach, California, Hawaii and camping in Red Lodge.

Kyle was a great son, and big brother to his sister, Sydney Joy. They spent time listening to music, driving around, and whatever else Sydney “asked” him to do. They were the best of friends and very close. They also enjoyed irritating one another as most brothers and sisters do. Kyle had a calm and laid-back demeanor. He used this to his benefit during an argument with Syd when he would calmly and sarcastically tell her “I Love you Syd”…and it made Syd crazy, just as he knew it would!

Kyle’s generosity and kindness to all touched many people on so many levels. He was also smart and witty. Not to be fooled by his quietness, Kyle had an amazing sense of humor. He was also artistic, which could be seen with the trendy apparel he sported. He spent the past few years working at Fuddruckers. He met new friends while working there, and although he had many friendships, his close friends were Jake, Lane, Gabe and Tory. His life was full of numerous people that loved him and are devastated by his passing. In addition, his loyal, loving pets Lucy, Ruby and Luna are lost without him.

Kyle is survived by his parents Rob Garza and Christina Small-Garza and his sister Sydney. He also leaves behind his great grandmother, Connie Yellowtail Jackson, of Wyola, MT; grandparents, Troy and Becky Garza, David and Val Small, Penny Small (Kevin), also of Billings MT, and Lynda Hayward of Germany. Kyle has a large (sizeable) family within the Crow Tribe. He is also survived by several aunts, uncles and cousins and too many friends to name. He is preceded in death by his grandma Cheryl Garza, and great grandmother Delores Blair.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 27th, 2019, at 11:00 am at Smith Funeral Home, 304 34th St W. A reception will follow at the McCall shop located at 1536 Mullowney Lane, Billings, MT 59101. Internment and graveside services will take place in Sidney, MT on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at the Sidney Cemetery at 1:00 p.m. with a reception at SVLC following.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention – MT Chapter, in Kyle’s name.

I will always remember your eyes and your sweetness. You left this world too soon and my heart aches for your family. I loved caring for you, and your passing will only strengthen my commitment to doing better for other adolescents just as beautiful as you.

Kyle, you were so loved and I do honestly believe you knew this. I think sometimes you didn't know how important you were. We all love you so much and we will join you someday. I think maybe grandma was lonely and needed you. Her good boy who never sassed her back like the rest of us. Now you can tell her and grandpa how much they are missed too. I will never get over you. I love you. Auntie
