Jokinen, Kyle

In loving memory of Kyle Jokinen, a lifelong resident of Whitefish who passed unexpectedly on Saturday, May 9, 2020 while fishing with his close friend. Kyle will be remembered as a kind and gentle person with good values, an amazing personality and great sense of humor. He was a much-loved son and brother who’s light of life will continue to shine in the hearts of his family and friends even in the darkness of this tragedy. Kyle was entering the next stage in life with becoming a first-time father and to everyone who knew Kyle knew how excited and devoted to this role he was. Kyle was also known by many to be an avid angler, fishing the Manitowaning Ice Showdown and Manitoulin Salmon Classic. In Kyle’s spare time he could be found making his custom jigs, tying flies, and fishing with his Ashlyn, Brody, Lukas, Dave, and James. It was very unlikely there was ever a time when Kyle or one of the fishing crew wouldn’t be reeling in a trophy fish. He also spent countless hours in the garage working on his toys and Toyota’s with Cody, Eric, Mike and Ethan. Kyle is survived by his fiancée Ashlyn Cousineau, loving mother Sheila Marcotte, best friend and Father Robert Jokinen, devoted brother to Kali (Brett) Pellarin, Kraig, Dave (Tabitha), and Derek Jokinen. Cherished grandson to Frank (predeceased) and Linda Weir, Lauri (predeceased) and Joyce Jokinen. Kyle will always be in the hearts of his dear uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews and friends. Sadly missed by his canine companions Gino and Nola (Lexus). In keeping with Kyles wishes, there will be a Celebration of Life announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a trust account has been established for the soon to be child of Kyle and Ashlyn. Trust Account deposits can be made directly to TD Canada Trust, Transit# 28322, Institution# 004, Account# 6313037.


5 Condolences

  1. Dear Rob, Kraig, and family

    I am truly sorry for the intense pain you are feeling over the loss of your beloved Kyle. God’s Word says death is an enemy. It also says “… the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing’’ (1 Corinthians 15:26). Not only will death soon be done away with, but those who have already died are not forgotten. The creator of life promises that when His Kingdom soon takes over, ”…all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” So, soon your tears of sorrow will be turned into tears of joy as you are reunited with Kyle right here on earth in God’s Kingdom. (The Kingdom referred to in ‘the Lord’s prayer’ at Matthew 6:10/Daniel 2:44). Until then, “Be courageous, and may your heart be strong, all you who are waiting for Jehovah.” (Psalms 31:24)

    I hope you find comfort in these promises, soon to be fulfilled:

    ‘Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming
    in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear
    his voice.’
    –John 5:28

    ‘And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,
    and death will be no more, neither will mourning
    nor pain be anymore. The former things have
    passed away.’
    –Revelation 21:4

    ‘The righteous will possess the earth,
    And they will live forever on it.’
    –Psalms 37:29

    Big hugs to all!
