UPDATE: Police have identified the victim of the crash as 28-year-old Kyle Ivory.
In a Facebook post by Desert Tech, they said Ivory was a valued member of their team and they are deeply saddened at his passing.
“He was always so full of energy and positivity that it was contagious for anyone that was around him,” said the post.”Every customer who ever dealt with Kyle praised him for his desire to take care of them, his professionalism, and his support for the Desert Tech brand.”
They continued their post saying his passion led to him becoming appointed as an official ambassador for the Desert Tech brand.
“With such a great loss, we are left questioning why the best of us leave this world too soon, maybe it’s because Kyle had already perfected what God wants us all to learn, how to love our neighbor as ourselves,” said the post. “We know Kyle is with God and we appreciate the time we got to know him and be a part of his life. We ask God to bless his wife and children and comfort them in this time of great need.”
