Killian Michael Yeager peacefully passed through heaven’s gates at the young age of 19 years. Killian was born on October 2, 2000, and left us on July 23, 2020. He graduated from Skyview High School in 2019 and joined the Army Reserves. Killian was a brilliant and charming young man who will be missed by many.
Killian loved the outdoors; whether it was fishing with his dad and brother or golfing with his mom and grandpa John. Killian was a caring friend and loving son/grandson. He was also a loving and devoted brother to his little brother Grayson. His sense of humor was one of his best traits. He always wanted to make people laugh. Killian loved and appreciated all kinds of music. He grew up at Lake Hills and after graduation left for basic training at Fort Jackson, SC. Killian graduated from basic with flying colors and proceeded to AIT at Fort Lee in Virginia. He had plans to attend MT Tech in Butte for engineering, but those plans were put on hold when he had orders come through for a deployment this fall. Killian had plans to go on to become a pilot, as he loved flying.
Killian worked at Lake Hills Golf Course throughout high school and also did some construction work with his stepdad, Brendon. Most recently, Killian was working for FedEx at the airport, loading and unloading planes. Killian is loved by many and will be greatly missed by all.
Killian is survived by his mother Katie Hogenson (Brendon Hill), father Keith Yeager (Emily Ludwick), his brother Grayson Hilliard, grandparents John and Collette Hogenson and grandmother Ricki Yeager, aunts Jen Luoma (Derek Luoma) and Kim Yeager-Little (Nate Little), and uncles J.C. Hogenson (Kindra Hogenson) and Kyle Yeager (Fe Yeager), and numerous cousins and friends. Killian will be greeting his uncle Kevin Yeager and grandpa Dennie Yeager in heaven.
