Donald Wyman Jr. ’55

Published in the Mar.19, 2008, issue

Don died suddenly Nov. 28, 2007, while gardening — an activity he enjoyed so much — at home in Glastonbury, Conn.

He came to Princeton from Weston (Conn.) High School. Majoring in aeronautical engineering, Don sang in the Glee Club, was a member of Quad, where he played club sports, and roomed with David Roblin senior year.

Following three years in the Air Force, where he flew KC-97s, Don spent 38 years with Pratt & Whitney’s experimentation, development, and testing department. Jet engines, Apollo fuel cells, and deep-submergence fuel cells were his specialties.

After retiring from P&W, Don shifted gears and became a landscape designer and master gardener. Fishing, boating, and

traveling were his hobbies. He was a communicant at St. James Episcopal Church of Glastonbury. Don loved Princeton and served for many years on the local schools committee.

Don is deeply missed by family and friends. To Elizabeth, his wife of 52 years and girlfriend since Princeton days; his two sons; a daughter; the grandchildren; and the extended Wyman family, the class extends deepest sympathy.
