Kenneth was especially fond of his miniature schnauzer Darby. The greatest joys of his life, were his children and grandchildren.

My big brother has passed away, but he will not be forgotten by the people who truly loved him. I have known him all of my life better than anyone. I knew his thoughts, his dreams, and all of the people in his life, past and present, that he loved, and the ones who really meant something to him.

My brother was very smart, and if he had not been forced to leave college after our father suffered a heart attack, he would have graduated from the U of I with honors. While he was always trying to portray the John Wayne tough-guy image, he actually was a very generous man with the biggest heart of any man I have known. The only exception is the greatest man I ever knew, our father. I know that he is now with our parents on our grandfather's farm in Rhode Island. As children, it was the closest thing to heaven we knew. The Wyman Family wishes to thank everyone for their many expressions of caring.

Wyman Roofing was the roofing contractor on two jobs that I ran for P.J.Hoerr. Ken was always good to work with and his firm could be counted on to be prompt, competent and timely. He was good to work with because he and his firm cared about the job and it showed.
