Coyle Richard Love

Coyle Richard Love: 2003 – 2024

Coyle Richard Love, (Allee) born in Gillette, Wyoming on October 20, 2003 went with the lord on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, after a motorcycle accident. He lived his life to the fullest until his last day.

Coyle loved to be surrounded by friends and family and knew no strangers. Days were filled with adventures shooting his multitude of guns, golfing, snowboarding, hunting, kayaking, traveling, fishing, driving ATVs, brandings, photography, and he was up to do anything if you asked.

Coyle worked as hard as he played, and he loved carpentry. He was a natural with any task he put his mind to and had no limits to his skills. Coyle’s love and compassion for others was only surpassed by how loved he is.  His mischievous smirk and contagious laugh, along with his innate ability to include and connect with everyone will be deeply missed by all!  He touched so many hearts in his short time on this earth that was unarguably, far too short.

His immense family left on earth includes parents: Joni Love Spaulding, Luke Spaulding, Mark Allee, Tanya Allee Norris; siblings, Sadi Maul Allee, Tucker Dobson, Clancy Spaulding, Conagher Spaulding, Grady Baird, Aspen Baird; beloved niece, Hazel Maul and faithful companion Athena. He is also survived by his bonus family: Justice Hackworth, Travis Hurm, Braik Hurm, Charlie Hurm and Deni Hurm; grandparents, Harry and Debbie Love, Jeanett Wolff, Cindy Scott Lovelace, Rusty Allee and Debbie Norris, Roger and Lois Spaulding; great-grandmothers, Eileen Wolff and Rose Duncan; and great-grandparents, Marion and Mary Scott.  

Coyle also preceded a multitude of aunts, uncles, cousins and an enormous extension of friends, whose lives he has touched deeply. Coyle was preceded in death by Chas Norris.

A public viewing will be held at Gillette Memorial Chapel on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with funeral services held at the Cam-Plex Heritage Center on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 4:00 p.m., immediately followed by a reception and time of fellowship, to share our stories and celebrate Coyle’s life.
