Resin (Reese) Wyman

Resin (Reese) Wyman left us on December 17, 2015.  He was born on January 27, 1923 in Port Angeles, WA.   Reese was a WWII veteran and fought in the European campaign during the war as a fighter pilot, specifically flying in P-51’s, P-47s, and spent sometime in the B-17 Bombers.  After the war, Reese worked in many jobs, but enjoyed photography.  He eventually worked for the Boeing Company for over 27 years, mainly in Engineering as a Contract Compliance Coordinator.  He retired in the late 1980’s.

Reese and his family lived in many parts of the country, but Washington State was home to him.  Reese and Edith lived on Vashon Island, in Federal Way, Shelton and finally in Graham, WA.  Reese is survived by Edith, his wife of 72 years, his four children, Lynn, Lee, Katy, Liz and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Reese has quite a number of friends and will definitely be missed.  Rest in Peace, Reese.

A memorial gathering will be at a later date.
