Kyle J. McCann, age 18, unexpectedly left us and went to heaven from injuries he sustained in an automobile accident on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2019, in Wantage Township. Born in Newton on March 6, Kyle lived in Wantage. He was a 2018 graduate of High Point Regional High School and was currently attending Lincoln Tech. While in school, Kyle worked at the Dairy Queen in Montague and also for TNT Fence in Wantage, both owned by friends whom he considered family. He was a member of and attended St. Jude The Apostle Church in Hamburg.

Kyle had many friends and lit up a room with his smile and outgoing personality. He always had a story to share or something to say to make you laugh. He was ready to help, and was relied upon by all who needed something. He was very social, enjoying strong relationships with family and friends and loved to be with others. He had set many goals to begin a career in HVAC, and received the Director’s Award from Lincoln Tech. Kyle was very athletic and played soccer, basketball, football and was on the track and field team at HighPoint where he excelled in throwing events, receiving his four-year Varsity letter and winning numerous awards. Kyle made friends wherever he went, and made a lasting impression. He was honored and excited to be a sponsor for his cousin Billy’s Confirmation. Kyle enjoyed his truck and Civic, country music, his Red Wings, concerts at Bethel Woods, and a good BBQ. Kyle was an incredible son, brother, and very genuine person who made an impact on so many in his short life. Our hearts are broken, and we ask for your prayers as we have a such an empty space in our lives. Knowing that he is with the Lord has brought us some peace, and we will carry Kyle in our hearts forever. Having him for almost 19 years was a blessing, and we will treasure every memory for the rest of our lives, and ask that others do as well. Writing this obituary has been difficult, as we never thought at this point in his young life it would be needed.

He is survived by his loving parents, Steven J. and Amy (Gould) McCann of Wantage; his brothers, Sean and Christopher McCann of Wantage; his grandmother, Phyllis McCann of Wantage; his great grandmother, Constance Laverty and her companion Irving Kohn of Rockaway; and his aunts and uncles, Carolyn and Mark Friss of Albany, New York, Bill and Jennifer Gould of Wantage, John McCann of Hadley, New York, Godfather Kevin and JoAnn Gould of Hackettstown, Kim and Jerry Newchok of Columbia, and Ellen Monaco of Bloomfield, and many wonderful cousins. He treasured friendships from Sussex Christian School, High Point High School and Lincoln Tech which included both students and teachers. These friends and their families became a huge part of his life. You all played a part in the wonderful man he was. He was predeceased by his grandfathers, John McCann and Myles Laverty.

A memorial mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 2, 2019, at St. Jude The Apostle Church in Hamburg, with fellowship following in the church hall. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Pinkel Funeral Home, 31 Bank Street (Route 23), Sussex. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations may be made to gofundme.com/kyle-mccann-memorial. Online condolences may be offered to the family at www.pinkelfuneralhome.com.

“The only conclusion I come to is that Heaven was needing a hero like you…”
