Kyle Bushman


Kyle Bushman
1979 - 2012

Kyle Scott Bushman was a proud Native American man. He was a man of few words, but was a man of great actions. He was one of those people who just commanded a silent respect. When I think about Kyle, the first word that comes to mind is generosity. I know people hear this kind of thing all the time, but Kyle was the type of man who would give the shirt off his back and shoes off his feet. He loved to travel. He was known for throwing barbecues all the time, just for a reason to have our family together. He loved art and was really into tattoos. He loved the outdoors and camping and was very family-oriented. But most of all he was a big man with an even bigger heart. He would do anything for the ones he loved. He was well loved and will live on in all our hearts and memories. We will be together when the Creator calls us home.

Survived by two beautiful children, 9-year-old daughter, Lakota Sioux Bushman, and 6-year-old son, Leland Anthony Bushman; step-children, Precelia and Gaby; fiance, Sabrina Chavez; grandmother, Cora Ostland; mother, Lana Sue Bushman; brother, Paul Anthony Lightner; nieces, Destiny Lightner, Devany Lightner and Leila Lightner; cousins and Aunt Kelly of Caldwell, Idaho; lots of aunts, uncles and cousins from Saskatchewan, Canada; family from Wolf Point, Montana, and Walla Walla.
