Wyman lived a full and enjoyable life. He was born in Many, La. on June 6, 1930 and joined the United States Air Force during the Korean Conflict. Upon returning home, he worked in the oil and gas industry in sales. As a side job, Wyman stocked and serviced vending machines. This side job became full-time however, and he sold his business after 20 years.
In retirement he traveled to Tennessee, and was offered a job at Dollywood in the vending machine maintenance department. He worked there for a few years and enjoyed his time spent at the theme park. He will be missed by all who knew him.
