THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Eugene A. Wyman
Eugene A. Gene Wyman, 75, of Crivitz, Wis. passed away peacefully in Sarasota, Fla., Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, after a courageous year long battle with leukemia.
He was the son of John and Eleanore Wojtkiewicz and he was the second child of four. Gene attended school in Crivitz and joined the U.S. Marines in 1955. He loved sharing everything he experienced while in the Marines.
Gene 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, Gene 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, Gene will be remembered for his ability to create a conversation with anyone who crossed his path.
Gene is survived by his wife, Mary; six children, Tim (Tammy) Wyman of Neenah, Wis, Tammy (Mark) Wyman of Sarasota, Tracy (Don) Besnier of Lithia, Fla., Holly Wyman of Sarasota, Allison (Charlie) Godoski of Mulberry, Fla. and Shannon (Eric) Rajewski of San Francisco, Calif., several grandchildren, Brandon, Kaylin, Lyndsay, Brooke, Ryan, Heather, BJ, Ryan, Alexis, Tristen, Brittany, Nina and Syndney; one great-granddaughter, Stella; sisters, Karne Thomas of Crivitz and Gretchen (Jack) Keiler of Green Bay and a brother and best friend, Roger (mary) Wytkewicz of Sarasota, Fla.
