The Life of Kyle Douglas Hoch

Kyle Douglas Hoch, 29, of Kutztown, passed away on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Born in Reading, Kyle was a son of Tammy J. (Moyer) Crouthamel, Fayetteville, NC, and Wayne D. Hoch, Wilton, NY. Kyle was a 2007 graduate of Kutztown Area High School. As a child, Kyle was full of life. He could always be found in the swimming pool, or in the garage, working by his grandfather's side on cars. He was also a member of the Kutztown Dolphin Swim Team for several years. His love of cars and working on them never stopped, as he made it a career. He also had a love for music.

Kyle struggled with addiction as it was a constant battle. No one plans on becoming an addict or being an addict for that matter. Addiction does not discriminate, but as a Christian, Kyle was determined to fight and was dedicated to his recovery. Kyle would always reach out to anyone he knew that needed his help. His friendly personality and helpful ways will always be remembered by his family and friends.

In addition to his father, Wayne and mother, Tammy, Kyle is survived by his step-father, Sean M. Crouthamel, two daughters, Jocelyn Hoch, age 9, and Sophia Hoch, age 7; maternal grandmother, Ellen M. (Schultz) Moyer, Kutztown; paternal grandmother, Maryann Hoch, Red Hill; half-sister, Jessica Erkhert, Bally; step-sister, Ashley Crouthamel, Bethlehem; and step-brothers, Michael and Jonathan Crouthamel, both of Quakertown; nephew, Caiden; and nieces, Giana and Ava. Kyle was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, David G. Moyer, Sr., in 2014, who was like a father to him. He was his "Pop".

Services for Kyle will be held privately.
