On a beautiful spring morning, Saturday, April 26, 2014, his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ called John “Dickie” Stuart Wyatt Jr. home.
John was born December 13, 1930, at Friars Hill, WV, to the late John S. and Nora Spangler Wyatt.
He was retired from The Greenbrier with over 50 years of service and was a U.S. Mail contractor. Dickie, as he was known by his friends and family, graduated from Williamsburg High School and attended Concord College.
He entered military service and served in Korea. He was a member of the VFW, as well as a member of the
Alleghany Masonic Lodge #136. Dickie enjoyed playing golf and helping his family out in any way possible. He was raised to work by the sweat of his brow. He was a great father, husband, and grandfather. Dickie always had a smile for everyone, and he never met a stranger. He was a member of Emmanuel United Methodist Church and enjoyed services at Bethesda Temple of Praise and listening to his son, who played drums on the praise and worship team.
