Kyler Elliott Stevens, born March 23, 2019, age 4, passed away and went to his heavenly home while surrounded by his family at 2:26 p.m. on February 14, 2024.

Kyler was the adopted son of Christopher and Amber Stevens of Milford, KS. He is survived by his siblings Emily, Caden, Keira, and biological brother Aiden. He was loved deeply by all his family.

While on Earth, Kyler enjoyed Disney music, watching Moana and game shows, being loved on by his siblings, and held by his parents and grandparents. While his Earthly body created great limitations on him, he found ways to bring joy to all those who encountered him, and though his time on this Earth was short, the impact he made on others will resonate for a lifetime. He will be missed greatly by all family and friends. He proceeds into Heaven to join his grandfather Edward Simon, who left too soon but said he would wait for Kyler to take him home.

The family would like to thank all the doctors and staff who have worked with Kyler over the years. Especially those who attended to him in the Pediatric ICU at Children’s Mercy Hospital, who’s care, support, encouragement, and devotion to their jobs, allowed the family to find peace at a difficult time. The family would also like to thank the teachers and staff at the Early Childhood Center, who helped Kyler have experiences the same as other kids, working with him to learn how to communicate with his family, and teaching him how to find his voice. A special thank you to the many care providers through the TA waiver that have helped ensure that Kyler had the supports necessary to make the gains he did and remain with his family for as long as possible.

Memorials will be received to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Kansas City and Give Kids the World Village in Orlando, Florida.
