Family Mourns Crash Victim

Kyle Seaholm, the 20-year-old Canyon Country resident who was killed in a motorcycle crash Monday, had a zest for life and a promising future, his uncle said Tuesday.

The young man, who was killed in a head-on collision with a pickup truck on Camp Plenty Road, enjoyed diverse interests and was set to embark on a new career, according to his uncle Brian Rappe.
Seaholm, who was initially identified by a different last name, was also tight with his extended family, which included his parents, Paul Seaholm and Cosima Colvin, his brother Ryan, and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
"He and his brother Ryan were very close and at one time lived together, worked together and played together," Rappe remembered. "And he was the apple of his cousin Analise's eye. He could always be counted on if you needed a hand, shoulder or ear."
An avid sportsman, Seaholm loved the adrenaline rush of fast cars, wind, water and snow.
"Kyle loved skateboarding, snowboarding, wakeboarding - anything where he could use his physical talents for balance and agility," Rappe said. "He was well known in his group for his car, a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, which he loved. His car and his friends were his constant companions."
Born in Tarzana, Seaholm lived in the Antelope Valley until his mid-teens, at which time he moved to Canyon Country with his father. He graduated in 2005 from Canyon High School, which is only a short distance from his home on Carvel Drive.
After working for several years at Hobby People in Canyon Country, Seaholm decided to make a career change. At the time he was killed he was in his final month at North Hollywood's Concorde Career Institute, studying for his associate degree in respiratory therapy.
"He was studying hard and looking forward to graduating from Concorde," said Rappe. "He was supposed to take a final exam on Tuesday."
"Fortunately, he never knew what hit him and he went out at the top of his game," Rappe said.
Funeral plans are pending.
