Kyle Fortin

Old Lyme- Kyle Selbie Fortin, 24, formerly of Old Lyme, died unexpectedly in his home in California.
He was born in New Haven, CT August 30, 1994, the son of Jamie (Selbie) Rohrberg and Charles Fortin. Kyle was a 2012 graduate of East Lyme High School and received his Bachelor’s Degree from Goodwin Community College. He was employed by the Onni Company as a Project Manager in California.
Kyle was an amazing person with a heart bigger than most. He enjoyed playing lacrosse, going skiing, and making raps with his friends. Kyle had a special bond with his mother and loved hanging out and watching HBO/ Netflix shows together. He was known to have endless conversations with his brother Elijah about football and how the Eagles were going back to the Super Bowl. He also enjoyed traveling to various new locations with his Fiancé Jasmina, and was a wonderful doggy daddy to their fur baby Stella (and Karma). Most importantly of all, Kyle was a loving and loyal friend whose smile and laugh were so contagious that they would spark friendship with any person he met. In addition to being a great friend, he truly cared about helping those in need. These are just a few of Kyles qualities that made him the incredible person that he was to all of us.
He is survived by his loving mother Jamie Selbie (Mark) Rohrberg of Old Lyme; his father Charles M. Fortin; his brother Elijah D. Fortin; Fiancé Jasmina Gjergjaj; Step Siblings Seth and Ethan Rohrberg; Aunt Diane Selbie; Step Grandmother Jackie Rohrberg, and Step Uncles Carl and Jeff (Anne) Rohrberg. He was predeceased by his Maternal Grandparents Marlene and James Selbie, and Paternal Grandparents Stella Dixon and Donald Fortin.
