Kyle James Contris, 35, passed away June 13, 2018, in Olympia, Washington, where he was born April 29, 1983 to Mark and Jenny Contris. He graduated from Black Hills High School and The Evergreen State College. He also attended Western Oregon University and South Puget Sound Community College. He met Andrea Zipperer in high school and they were married on August 27, 2011.
Kyle was owner/fabricator/designer/creator of ConCreations, recycled concrete countertops. He had a passion for creating functional art and building things with his hands. He was also part of the Fungi Perfecti employee family.
Kyle will be remembered for these qualities: smart, creative, loyal, hard-working, resourceful, witty, kind-hearted, and proficient. He was an avid reader, writer, and enjoyed live music. He also loved being outdoors, camping, hiking, and riding dirt bikes in his younger days. He liked football and was a loyal Seahawks fan. His favorite game time snack was anything salty and crunchy and a good India Pale Ale.
He had a deep love for his family and a special connection with his longtime childhood friends. He especially loved spending time with his two-year-old daughter, Etta. They often went on nature walks or to the local trampoline park.
