Vince Douglas Kyle could argue a point from both sides and when done, most everyone remembered his name and many became his friend. If you didn’t know Vince’s point of view, you really never talked with him. He started life with very little and with the work ethic of a stubborn ox left this world with his head held high and very few, if any, regrets.

It is with extreme sadness and a heavy heart that his family must let everyone know Vince passed away of natural causes (Not COVID-19 related) on Monday, October 12, 2020 way too young at the age of 63.

For several years, he worked for the City of Great Falls and was also a well-known (and sometimes respected) Montana Officials Association (MOA) Basketball Referee. Forty years ago, while reffing one of those many games, Vince met his wife, Kathy, and they built their life together. After stints at several vending companies, he and Kathy purchased and helped run their family bar, “Ike and Susan’s”.

After 28 years they recently sold the bar and were looking forward to experiencing more life together. He was an avid collector of everything, but his most precious collectables were smiles from his grandkids. He was an outstanding granddad. He was a member of the Cascade County DUI Task Force, Montana Tavern Association and the Cascade County Tavern Association for many years.
