Kyle Richard Herzog, born April 28, 1991, to his parents Mary and Steve Herzog, was taken to his final resting place on January 14, 2023, with his parents by his side.
Kyle attended Lincoln High School and then went on to graduate from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Arts.
Kyle worked at Northwestern Mutual for a short period of time, then decided his passion was golf. Kyle was a caddie at various renowned golf courses throughout the United States, which took him to Whistling Straits and Black Wolf Run in Kohler, Wisconsin, TPC Scottsdale, Troon North, and Silver Leaf – all courses in Scottsdale, Arizona. Kyle also caddied at Hillcrest Country Club in Los Angeles, California. Kyle loved being a caddie, working outside, and meeting people from across the world. His favorite location in the winter months was being in Arizona to enjoy the weather, the views of the mountains, and taking a drive up to Sedona to see the beautiful red rock formations.
Kyle was an avid Packer and Badger fan. He enjoyed going to hockey games with his friends in Arizona. On his day off he would go golfing, which was a true passion of his. When working in Wisconsin in the summer months, he enjoyed being with friends and going to Elkhart Lake for the races.
