Lyle Gene Ferguson passed away on January 8th, 2023 at the age of 70. Lyle was born to Scott and Dorothy Ferguson on February 12th, 1952 in Salt Lake City, Utah. What words can we use to express the many facets of such an amazing man? Just that; he lived a fulfilling and intrepid life. In his youth, Lyle found a passion for many sports that would continue throughout his life. He played on a minor league baseball team, was a professional foosball player, an avid golfer, and practiced the art of Limalama. Lyle loved music. He was a talented musician and singer. He also loved a good game of poker. Lyle was “the greatest barber that ever lived” as he would often remind everyone. His career in the beauty industry was vast. He worked in many salons, and even went on to open his own before discovering his love of teaching. Lyle taught cosmetology for over 20 years at various campuses throughout Utah. He developed the Straight-line Method of Haircutting and published a book on men’s hairstyling. He can easily be compared to Atticus Finch, as he often spoke with a lesson in mind. Lyle enjoyed sharing his lessons, talents, stories, and jokes; these will live on through his students and family. Lyle was an amazing father, husband, friend, and teacher. He inspired many and was loved by all. We’ll love and miss you every day. Until we meet again, somewhere over the rainbow.
Lyle is preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Lynn. He is survived by his wife, Suzette. Two sisters, Bonnie and Roxann. His daughter, Leslie (Mike) and his grandsons, Lennon and Jack. A private service for close family has already taken place. No other services will be held. He would love for you to dedicate your next round of golf in his honor.
