Remembrances may be made to American Legion Post 154, Tybee Island, GA.
Wyman served with my dad in Japan during the Korean war and would tell me stories about my dad while we were at American Legion Post 154. He was also a client of our surveying company back in the 80s. What a great guy, so kind and laid back. I guess he and dad are back together telling old war stories. I won't be able to attend the funeral tomorrow because of a previously scheduled appointment. I am sorry for the families lost and will miss him dearly.

So sorry for your loss. Wyman was always a special person, I know that he and Frances are dancing in Heaven together today. He was a great husband to my cousin, and a good Dad to Michael and Mark, and to Little Ashby (who is watching her Dad and Mom in Heaven as they dance). I know you all have special memories to remember about your Dad, Grand Dad, and Great Grand Dad. Just know always that your Dad left you all with enough Love to last you a lifetime.

Dear Mike and Mark and the entire family of Wyman H Sharp, we will miss “Daddy Wyman” immensely for it is not often that we get to know someone who possessed so much charm, character, fun and sense of responsibility. However, there are no profound or clever words that I can accurately depict of what an immense person Wyman was! His undying love and devotion to the family depicts the man we have known, respected and loved. Maybess and I first met Wyman and Frances when we lived at Lincoln River Estates in Richmond Hill. These were of the most treasured moments of our lives. We had many enjoyable years attending the Georgia, Florida football games with the gang, Bill (Gator) Betty, Wyman and Frances. Those were the days of fun and folly for all and with these and other memories of Wyman will help us to sustain his memory in the years to come. Peace be with you. We love you and God bless. Wayne and May. J. Wayne Disher
