If you knew Wyman like I knew Wyman, oh, oh, oh what a guy!
No song lyrics or other words can adequately describe Wyman. He gave me meaningful work, laughter and, above all, enduring friendship. I met Wyman when he was Fort Worth Public Library Director. Who knew one man could possess such diverse skills - librarian, jazz pianist/singer and, of all things, magician! We started out in a business relationship that quickly turned into friendship. Wyman hired me to design the interiors of four branch libraries for Fort Worth, and three more in other small Texas cities. Our business meetings were like no others. Our diligent, enthusiastic work on projects was punctuated with jokes and laughter. Wyman was sharp and progressive in his thinking, his wit, his talents and the clothes he wore. He had a huge collection of beautiful and unusual neck ties, and was always looking for more! He appreciated good design in all forms, thus supporting my use of classic, mid-century modern furniture in all of our library interiors. We remained friends after his moves to L.A. and Portland, enjoying long, interesting phone calls and visits that were too few and far between. But ours was one of those friendships that withstood the passing of time. No matter how long between phone calls or visits, our conversations were always enriching and nurturing, as we caught up on our own and our kids' lives, the state of the world, music, pop culture, and recounting memories, as if no time had passed. But eventually too much time did go by between phone calls. When I couldn't reach Wyman recently, to my surprise I found him singing and playing the piano on YouTube! I was mesmerized, thrilled to see and hear my talented old friend once again. After learning of Wyman's passing from his son Manson, I realized again how important it is to stay in touch, to embrace those we love by reaching out often, if only to say "Just thinking of you, calling to see how you're doing." I'm so sorry we did not have that one last conversation. Thank you, Wyman, for your gifts of friendship, support, humor and intellect over the years. You were truly one-of-a-kind, and you will always have a special place in my heart.

We met the Jones family when Wyman became director of the public library system here in Fort Worth, in the early 1960's. Theirs was the third family in our neighborhood with four boys. Wyman was a talented man with interests in literature, music and of course magic. I kept in touch with his oldest son Greg after the family relocated to Los Angeles in 1970, and we remain close friends to this day. Our condolences to the entire family at Wyman's passing.
