Kyle D. Lewis, 71, of Lima passed away at 9:54 PM on Friday, June 17, 2022 at Kindred Hospital.

He was born on November 28, 1950 in Lima to Richard E. and Helen (Renner) Lewis, who both preceded him in death. On May 17, 1998, he married Sharon Price, who survives in Lima.

Kyle was a longtime barber having worked at the Lima Mall Barbershop for over 12 years and for the last 39 years at Northland Barbers. He had also worked for Gomer/Sugar Creek Township for 8 and half years. Through the years he also served as the 3rd Ward City Councilman for the City of Lima, and was famous for his one liners, but most notably he had been a Barney Fife impersonator since 2004 and was an integral part of many, many car shows and benefits around Lima.

Surviving in addition to his wife Sharon Lewis of Lima are his son Dr. Adam (Cynthia) Lewis of McMinnville, OR; his daughter Jamie (Doug) Gross of North Lewisburg, OH; his step-sons Jason and Joshua (Tayrn) High, both of Lima; his twin brother Lyle (Lynette) Lewis of Elida; his sister Carla (John) Olds of Traverse City, MI; his grandchildren Brian, Joshua, Lainey, Ryder; his step-grandchildren Ethan and Zachary. He is also survived by his brother-in-law Michael Price of Lima and many nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Thursday, June 23, 2022 at CHILES-LAMAN FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES, SHAWNEE CHAPEL.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, June 24, 2022 at CHILES-LAMAN FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES, SHAWNEE CHAPEL.

His son Rev. Adam Lewis and Pastor Mark Bayliff will co-officiate the services.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Salvation Army.

In true Kyle Lewis/Barney Fife fashion, he wanted everyone to know “NIP IT IN THE BUD”
