Kyle R. Upton, 32, died unexpectedly on Friday, June 16, 2017.
He was born in Salem, son of Dorothy “Dottie” Turner of Peabody and Randy Upton of Lynn.
Kyle lived most of his life in Peabody where he attended school. He was very bright, while adapting and learning much about the plumbing trade working with his uncle, James Turner. He also worked with several plumbers in the North Shore area because he was mechanically gifted.
He played sports growing up, and was known as a gentle giant. Despite his tall, strong frame, he was always willing to do anything to help people. He enjoyed dirt bike riding, and had a desire to one day own a retail business selling items for those who like vaping and cloud sport competitions.
He is survived by his mother, Dottie Turner and her fiancé, John Mullins and step-father, John Tracchia, all of Peabody; his father, Randy Upton of Lynn; a beloved daughter and her mother, Felicity Elizabeth Upton and Crystal Fournier of Alton, N.H.; and his girlfriend, Tonia Pelletier of Limington, Maine. He was the half-brother of Shane Upton of Lynn and Shawna Upton of Lynn, and leaves many extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was the grandson of the late Phyllis and Albert Turner.
