Kyle Douglas Woollet was born on March 17, 1986, to parents George and Debra (Dennett) Woollet in Oceanside, California. He grew up there and graduated with his bachelor's degree from Brooks Institute of Photography. Following graduation, Kyle went to Korea for one year where he taught children English. While in Korea, Kyle met many friends that spoke highly of Ames and encouraged him to settle there with his growing family. He made the decision to move to Iowa in 2013. After moving to Iowa, Kyle's desire to help others guided him to the nursing profession, and he graduated from DMACC. Kyle pursued his passion for caring for others, while working as a float nurse with McFarland Clinic until his cancer diagnosis.
Kyle enjoyed many things and had many hobbies; growing up he enjoyed going camping, and trips with his family to the desert, beach, and traveling to Mexico. He then served on church mission trips to Mexico, faithfully serving the locals and helping build homes. As an adult he liked playing music as a self-taught musician, painting abstract art, and started an ultimate frisbee team in Ames. Kyle was very social and simply loved being around people. Most of all, Kyle treasured time spent with his daughters, Lily Marcel, and Evie Sage who he loved immensely.
Kyle will be deeply missed by his daughters, Lily Marcel and Evie Sage and their mother, Meghan Brandon; parents, George and Debbie Woollet; siblings, Chris (Dianna) Woollet and Lauren (Eric) Henderson; nieces and nephews, William, Kaylin, and Wesley Woollet, and Brett and Elizabeth Henderson; and many aunts, uncles, friends, and other extended family. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Lucille and Louie Sgobassi, and Bruce and Bernice Dennett.
Memorial contributions may be shared with his daughters on the GoFundMe site "Support Lily & Evie" organized by Nikki Brandon, https://www.gofundme.com/f/lily-evie?qid=2d5c42c712261f65206f436c3aa78583.

I work as a CNA at the Bliss Cancer Center where I first met Kyle as a patient. He was always quick with the jokes and soon we had a repertoire going. I would ask if he was Wayne or Garth that day and he would always reply "I'm always Wayne, geez!" and then laugh. He would then say, "I'm only Garth when the lights go out." He was always quick with tidbits of humor, despite his health struggles. My heart goes out to his family, I am sure that he was the bright light of anyone's day. My deepest sympathies go out to you.
