Kyle Thomas Osgood

Kyle Thomas Osgood was born on March 30, 1994, in Muncie, Indiana. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He grew up with his loving parents, Mike and Amy Osgood, and alongside his twin brother, Cody, and younger brother, Cole. Kyle spent his childhood riding bikes around the town of Farmland, playing Nerf wars, and raising pigs for 4-H. Kyle was known for his contagious smile and laugh and for his willingness to always help others.

Kyle attended Monroe Central for his entire K-12 education and continued on to Ivy Tech, where he received a degree in agriculture. Kyle had a passion for FFA and 4-H. He was voted 4-H Fair King and took great pride in being called “King Kyle.” He was an active member of FFA and was honored to serve as the FFA president. Kyle continued his involvement with FFA after graduation, volunteering to be a mentor and coach.

Kyle was a dedicated member of the Farmland Volunteer Fire Department for 15 years. He spent much of his childhood at the station and became a junior member at the age of 14. Kyle could often be found at the station doing training, chatting with friends, or completing a project. Kyle’s ultimate goal was to be fire chief like his dad before him. Kyle had worked his way up the ranks to assistant chief of the fire department. This was a position that he took with great pride, and he loved being a leader.

Kyle met his wife, Darby, in high school, but they didn’t begin dating until several years later. They were married on June 29, 2019. Together, they loved to spend time doing DIY projects around the house and being outside. They welcomed their son, Tyler, on October 1, 2021. Tyler was the light of Kyle’s life. He loved being a dad.

Kyle was friendly and outgoing, never knowing a stranger. Anyone who met Kyle would tell you he always had a big smile on his face, a story to tell, or a sarcastic comment to make you laugh. He was an avid Harry Potter fan and was a proud member of the Ravenclaw house. Kyle enjoyed camping, woodworking, gardening, and kayaking. He was always looking for ways to create memories and spend time with his loved ones. Kyle’s dedication and service to the community will be deeply missed by all.
