THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Eugene A. Wyman
Eugene A. Gene Wyman, 75, of Crivitz passed away peacefully in Sarasota, Fla. on Friday, Feb. 8 after a courageous year long battle with leukemia.
The son of John and Eleanore Wojtkiewicz, he was the second child of four. He attended school in Crivitz and joined the United States Marine Corps in 1955. He loved sharing everything he experienced while in the Marines.
He married Mary Mans on Nov. 8, 1961. After leaving the Marines he opened the Crivitz Home Bakery, where he took extreme pride in providing fresh home-baked goods to loyal customers for 30 years. In 1982 he opened up the Bakers Kitchen, followed by Ellis Junction Supper Club and Ginos Pizzeria in Crivitz. Upon selling his businesses in Crivitz, he became passionate about collecting and selling taxidermy out of his home in Republic, Mi. To the people he came into contact with, he will be remembered for his ability to create a conversation with anyone who crossed his path.
His wife, Mary survives, along with six children, Tim (Tammy) Wyman of Neenah, Tammy (Mark) Wyman and Holly Wyman, both of Sarasota, Fla., Tracy (Don) Besnier of Lithia, Fla., Allison (Charlie) Godoski of Mulberry, Fla. and Shannon (Eric) Rajewski of San Francisco, Calif., 13 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
