RIP: The Hardest Working Man in Humboldt County

Posted By on Fri, Nov 15, 2013 at 12:32 PM

Hard-toiling exercise fanatic, exuder of tact and charm and recognizable recycler Ken Kyle has died.

If you've been in Humboldt long, you probably saw him working. His familiar pickup trucks sported an assortment of barrels, bags and boxes always filled — or about to be filled — with recycling; 10,000 pounds of glass a week during boom times.

Friend of the Journal Sean Wilson — who informed us of Kyle's death — made this 10-minute award-winning film about Kyle in 2005, and it's particularly touching now.
