Kyle Michael Lathan

Kyle entered the world fighting to claim his place on this Earth. He overcame many obstacles from birth until he was called home. God had placed his own real life sour patch kid here. Known for his crooked smile, love of trains, rap music,singing, dancing and his incredible spirit. Courtesy of his Grandma, Kyle was a kid who always asked, “How you sleep last night?” Strangers were not exempt from the questions either, although he rarely allowed enough of a pause for any of us to answer him. He had a way of grinding your nerves and in that same moment, making you laugh. Whether you knew him by Kyle, Shadow, Kyle Barker, Mr. Kyle or as grandma would say “My Boy” he always shined bright in his life. He would always give you the thumbs up so you knew he was alright.

Kyle Michael Lathan was born January 10, 2005, in Fremont, NE. He became the blessing of the Lathan family August 20th, 2007. Kyle is survived by Grandmother Bettie Lathan (Omaha, NE), Grandfather Larry Lathan Sr.(Duncanville,Texas), Mother Shanetha Lathan (Shiyla Davis), Step brother Haylen Sims, Step Sister Amaya Sims, Uncles Michael Cochran(Hope, AR), Darin Cochran (Omaha, NE), Duane Jackson (Jennifer) (Lincoln, NE), Aunt Katina Russ(Glenn) (Omaha,NE), Godmother Alesha Kellum (2 God brothers/2 God sisters)(Omaha,NE).
