Wylie died Feb. 5, 2001, of a massive heart attack. He and Vera, his wife of 61 years, had just moved in November to Adamstown, Md., to be near members of their family. They had been longtime residents of Dayton, Ohio, where Wylie, a mechanical engineer, had worked for Standard Register for 29 years. There, he was a member of Fairmont Presbyterian Church, of national and local societies of professional engineers, the Centerville Historical Society, the county chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society, and the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. But what meant the most to him were his family and working with the Boy Scouts and the church.
Vera tells us that Wylie had fond memories of Princeton, especially of playing guard on the championship 150-lb. football team. He and Vera were married in the Princeton Chapel in 1939. Doug Caney and Buz Bedford were in the wedding party. Their second son, Wallace, was in the Class of '66. He survives, as do sons Robert and Larry, daughter Peggy Gelhard, 10 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. We offer sincere sympathy to the entire family.
