Barry D. Hyliard
Barry Dee Hyliard, 54 of Coldwater passed away Tuesday, November 22, 2016 at his home, while surrounded by his family after a courageous battle with cancer.
A funeral service will take place Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at First Baptist Church in Coldwater with Pastor Mark Case of California Community Church officiating. Interment will follow at Oak Grove Cemetery. Visitation will be Monday, November 28, 2016 from 3:00 – 8:00 PM at Dutcher Funeral Home in Coldwater.
Barry was born as a twin January 8, 1962 to Lee and Janet (Bracy) Hyliard in Coldwater. After graduation from Bronson High School in 1981, he began a long working career. Barry spent many years doing asphalt paving before his entrepreneurial spirit took over. He was sole owner of Barry Hyliard Trucking. Barry, along with his brother Terry, were owners of Carman Safety Lock, Dorer Easy Shifter. On July 23, 1988 he married the love of his life, Susan McBride.
Barry was a hardworking, determined, and motivated man. He was a member of the Teamsters Union. Barry was very passionate about racing & motorsports. He spent many hours working at the speed shop. He also enjoyed riding his Harley Davison motorcycle, tinkering on old cars, and antiques. Barry was known for his quick wit, could be a bit sarcastic, and being strong willed with a bit of feistiness mixed in. His true joy in life was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
