    Thank you for posting my brother’s obit. It never was in the PNJ which the family requested, only in the “For the Record” which had the wrong date that he passed.
    My big brother was like a father to me as my dad was killed in an auto accident before I started school. Wylie was always there for the family and for many others. He will be dearly missed.
