January 01, 1985 ‒ September 01, 2018
MANSFIELD: Resilient, strong, and a bit mischievous accurately describes Kyle Gangi. Living with cerebral palsy, Kyle was told on more than one occasion, that his time was limited. Benefiting from an exceptional group of caregivers, most recently Tim, Kyle was able to thrive and live a meaningful life. Kyle repeatedly rebounded against the odds, which taught his family patience, perseverance and what truly matters in life. No longer bound by his earthly body, Kyle Wayne Gangi passed away, knowing he was loved, on Saturday, September 1, 2018 at the age of 33.
Kyle was born January 1, 1985 in San Diego, California to Vincent and Charlene. On this day, his parents were the first of many to fall in love with Kyle throughout his life. Eventually gaining an extended family, Kyle’s benevolent personality touched the lives of all he encountered. At times, he’d play little tricks on them just to see their reaction. Even his young nieces and nephews loved and cared for Kyle.
One of his favorite hobbies was cheering for his Ohio sports teams, the Cleveland Browns, Cavs, and Ohio State Buckeyes. During games, his mother always made sure he was rocking the appropriate attire! Kyle was quite a talented dancer, Uncle Kracker and Michael Jackson were some of his favorite artists. His best bud and K-9 friend, Zoey, was always at his side.
He is survived by his mother Charlene (James) Richards of Mansfield and father Vincent (Heather) Gangi of Ashland; siblings Aaron (Tracy) Gangi of Stow, Houston (Rena) Richards of Mansfield, Kimberly (Sean) Johnson of Mansfield, Joshua Gangi of Columbus, and Jordan Richards of Ontario; 11 nieces and 5 nephews; uncles Charles (Amy) Moats, aunt Julie (Mark) Haggeth, uncle Jim (Kathy) Gangi, aunt Mona (Randy) Gangi and aunt Nina Dortch.
Funeral services celebrating the life of Kyle Gangi will be held Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at 6 pm in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. His family will receive friends two hours prior, from 4-6 pm. Celebrant Dave Roberts will officiate.
