Obituary for Wayne G. Wylie

Wayne G. Wylie, age 77 of Albrightsville passed away surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, September 7th at his home.
Wayne was the loving husband of Frances D. (Manco) Wylie. They celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on May 3rd.
He was born in Abington on March 9, 1942, the son of the late William G. and Beatrice M. (Engle) Wylie.
Wayne had worked as a Project Manager at Vertex in Berwyn upon retiring to a quiet life in the mountains with his wife and dogs.

He was a graduate of Upper Dublin High School and after graduating served our country with dedication and courage in the U.S. Army in Germany.
He served Christ through the United Methodist churches he joined - Jarretown, Lehman in Hatboro, Lansdale, and Effort. He enjoyed serving
at Effort United Methodist Church though the Men's group, Seeker's bible study and the choir. His hobbies were stamps, gardening, model trains, reading,
listening to music, and watching documentaries. When his children were young he would support them through his presence at school functions, concerts,
scouts, and soccer. He continued to support his grandchildren through his presence at their birthdays and holidays, when he was able. He remained connected to his High School friends visiting with them monthly as he was able and looked to maintain activity through joining Silver Sneakers, in Brodheadsville.
