Brunswick, God looked around His garden selected one of his Angels to send to brighten the lives
of Kimberly Davis and Ronald Moore. That Angel came to earth in the form of Infant,
As a toddler “Kyi” as he was lovingly called by his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins
was a cute,curious, gregarious, extroverted little boy. His natural openness made it easy for him to
make friends. He grew up a happy and inquisitive child in a quiet New Jersey Suburb. He began
his formal education in Kings Daughter Pre-School. He continued on through Christian
elementary, middle schools. As a youth, Kyi attended Second Baptist Church in Perth Amboy,
NJ and was involved in its Youth Activities. He enjoyed giving and receiving an abundance of
love in a household that included his grandparents, Nan and Pop Pop aunts, Mona and LeAnna,
his uncles, Christopher and Rashon, his cousin Trevor who served as his big brother along with
his siblings Annisa”Brie” and Tulani
Kyi as an adolescent along with his mother and siblings migrated from New Jersey to East
Stroudsburg, PA. and in 2011, he graduated from Stroudsburg High School. Blessed with inate
intelligence that enabled him to grasp whichever subjects he was being taught with comfortable
ease. He attended Kutztown University of Pennsylvania for a short time before he enlisted in the
United States Air Force. During his enlistment there, it was discovered that he had a birth defect
with his back that shortened his enlistment in the military.
After which, Kyi went on to earn his CDL (Commercial Drivers License) which enabled him to
become a professional truck driver. His dad, Ronald owned a Trucking Company and hired his
young son to drive his big rigs throughout these United States. As a professional driver, Kyi had
the opportunity see states that many people much older than he has never seen. He was a hard
worker and never unemployed for any period of time. He was independent, self supporting and
accepted responsibility without complaint.
We all know that Kyi’s open nature enabled him to navigate his life in which he knew no strangers.
Kyi was very intelligent and could always be called on to solve family technical issues. He was not
only well loved, he was well liked. He was warm and always affectionate. He never just gave a
peck on the cheek, to the older females he greeted, he gave his generously warm hug. There
was a three word statement that Kyi never forgot to say to those he loved whenever he spoke to
or saw them, “I LOVE YOU”. Sometimes when he would visit his grandparents, Carol and Ray,
who lived downstairs in their home, they might have turned in for the night, Kyi would enter their
bedroom and lie between them just to let them know how much he loved them. Lest we forget, he
was always followed by barking as he went, of their ever vigilant guard dog. Milo, their miniature
doberman pinzer who literally hated Kyi so much so that he would sniff out his scent whenever he
thought Kyi was in his space. Kyi enjoyed the love/hate relationship he shared with Milo.
“That is just Kyi,” his Nan, grandmother Carol, would declare no matter the situation. She spoke
with him several days ago and prayed the Prayer of Salvation with him. Kyi accepted Christ as his
Personal Saviour, then upon completion, his statement was, I don’t understand it, but I accept it.
How many of us can make that declaration. I don’t understand it, but I accept it.
Kyi was generally jovial, naturally affectionate and.
Always hugging, Always laughing, Always smiling and Always saying
“I LOVE YOU”
He carried those traits for much of his life.
