    Pam, Korbin, Karson, and Christen,

    Our hearts are with you. Kyle was a pillar of our neighborhood network, and will be terribly missed. Sure enough, his reach was wide. When we met Kyle a few years ago, we found we had an unlikely and longstanding mutual friend in the printing industry. The world will just never be the same without him!

    Pam and family,
    Sending my love and prayers to you and your family. I met Kyle over 30 plus years ago through the paper business. Kyle had the most infectious personality and we became fast friends. I will cherish that friendship for always.
    He will be so missed by myself and everyone who loved him. By far one of my favorite people on this planet. I am holding you all in my heart and the light.❤️

    I had the privilege of working with Kyle several yrs ago. He always was supportive and helpful, sharing his knowledge and “can do” attitude. He made doing business easier!

    I am without words. Kyle and I were best friends while working together to grow the global digital
    print and paper business at Consolidated Papers which became StoraEnso and we traveled the world together. He was the best inspirational colleague I have ever experienced…. EVER…and was instrumental at securing global business accounts at Xerox and HP in spite of his successor….

    Kyle was an amazing man! I had the honor to work with him for many years while at Xerox! He was an example to others on how to be a vendor rep! Whenever he was in the room you could hear him laugh and he always had a smile to share. But most of all on ride alongs it was his stories about his family! His wife’s strength to kick cancer, his kids and their activities, his joy and pride for his family was immeasurable. He had a heart of gold and will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to the Prince family and please know we are praying for you all!

    In the short time that I knew Kyle, I had the pleasure engage with him on a personal and professional level. He was a great business partner, very honest and a lot of fun to be around. “Eternal rest grant unto them O’ Lord, let your perpetual shine upon them, and may the souls of faithful departed, rest in peace.” Amen

    I’m so sad to recently learn about Kyle’s passing. I was at a restaurant having dinner with a former business acquaintance when she received a text message about Kyle that she shared with me and I broke done in tears.
    I worked with Kyle in the 90s making sales calls on printers and and printing paper distributors in Northern California as well as Salt Lake City. He was an absolute joy to work with because of his very friendly, caring, and professional demeanor. He also had a wit about him that customers truly enjoyed. He had a persuasive talent in his sales presentations that customers always respected because of his knowledge about the industry. Being in my senior years, I’ll never forget him calling me to wish me a Happy Birthday. We would catch up on friends & customers we worked with as well as the status of the industry. He was a PRINCE of a guy & I will truly miss him. May he rest in peace knowing all he contributed in his career in printing papers as well as his loyalty to friendships and being loved by all. My condolences to his wife and two sons who he always spoke highly about and loved.

He was a great guy and his personality was recognized by his co workers and customers as one of integrity and commitment.

Although I haven’t talked to Kyle in years, I can still hear his laugh and the memories make me smile. My condolences to Pam, his children, family and close friends. Prayers for comfort for all.

    Like many I crossed paths with Kyle through the years in the paper and printing industry and it only took 1 meeting to know what a special man he was. Kyle instantly brought joy and fun to every relationship, no matter how frequent or infrequent the contact there was always a sense “of” connection”. Deep, deep condolences to Kyle’s family for your loss. Hope you find solace and in knowing how many people he touched and will always be remembered in the highest regard. Wishing you peace and godspeed.

    I have dealt with countless suppliers and sales reps during my years in Xerox procurement. Kyle was the best sales person I ever dealt with. As everyone can see from the many posts here, it was not just his industry knowledge and hard work, it was his innate ability to make everyone he dealt with feel at ease and special. I witnessed him win over my most difficult manager and be on a first name basis with the Xerox security guards at the front desks.

    He could disarm anyone with his charm and his sense of humor, making them feel like the most important person in the room. It was a gift and it brings a smile to my face remembering some of our meetings and dinners, where we would dissolve into discrete giggles observing some of the more unusual people we dealt with.

    My deepest sympathy to his wife and children, whom he often spoke of so lovingly. They should be proud of the legacy he has left behind. A profound sense of loss has rippled through all the former Xerox employees who remember him so fondly. Hope you meet up with your friend Dennis in the next life and have a cocktail together to celebrate two lives cut way too short but ones that touched so many people in a joyful way.

    Kyle always made every room he was in feel more alive, you could feel the room start to buzz whenever he walked in. He taught me that sometimes laughter is the best medicine and the importance of putting a smile on peoples faces. I was lucky to have him in my life.

    Prayers to Pam and family. Kyle was always a blast at the parties. The Cabo trip was a great time. Can’t believe that was 20 years ago. He would grab any animal, A blowfish on the beach, armadillo in back yard or snake in a tree. He will be missed. Sorry for your loss .

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
