John Robert Wylie
1940 - 2021
Tuolumne resident John Robert Wylie passed away on Oct. 25, 2021, at the age of 81.
Born in Contra Costa County, John spent many years in Tuolumne County, where he worked as a roofer and bar owner. John was a great and loving husband, father, brother, uncle, grandpa and great-grandpa. He worked hard his whole life so he could spend his retirement with friends and family. Married to his wife, Charlene, forever in his heart, they spent their years together raising their daughters, Carrie and Kelly. He spent many of his days out in his garden showing his grandchildren and great-grandchildren all about gardening.
During many summer days, he looked forward to going fishing with grandchildren or his friend Floyd. He liked to get together with friends to play cribbage and read lots of Western books. He loved to watch the family grow and to spend time with his wife, daughters, grandkids and great-grandkids. John lived a long and good life, spent with his family.
John is survived by his daughter, Kelly Carr (husband John); grandchildren Robert Carr ( wife Lauretta), Nicole Guzman (husband Abel), Emily Olson (husband Alex) and Hayden Carr, all of Tuolumne; 15 great-grandchildren; and siblings, Shela Santos and Florence Abel. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Beulah Wylie; his wife, Charlene Wylie; daughter Carrie Lynn Wylie; brother, Pat Wylie; and sister, Carolyn.
Private family services will be held.
John will truly be missed by many, but we are so grateful for all the moments we did get, that will be forever treasured.
