Mr. Kylan Taylor Leeper, age 25 of Lebanon, passed from this life into his eternal home on Friday October 6, 2023 at Trousdale County Medical Center in Hartsville, TN.

As a young man, Kylan received Christ Jesus as his Lord and Savior and was baptized into the fellowship of LaGuardo Baptist Church. Later on he attended the Bridge Fellowship in Lebanon with his family. Kylan was raised in a loving home and was always such a fun and energetic child. He attended Lebanon High School, and was an avid lover of baseball and softball. Kylan enjoyed being outdoors, and spent many days fishing and “pond hopping” with his friends. He would spend hours crafting and tinkering with new fishing lures and playing with his fishing tackle. Kylan proved to be a decent hunter, and was a fantastic shot with a hunting rifle. He and his brother would often go rabbit hunting and he took the opportunity to brag on his skills to anyone who would listen. Kylan was great at creating things and working with his hands.
