Obituary, The Recorder, Gore Bay, Thursday, January 13, 1921 -
R.L. Wyman one of the Manitoulin's most respected and honoured pioneer citizens at the age of 87 years eight months and four days very peacefully passed away on Dec. 13th, 1920, at the home of his daughter Mrs. Mary Nelder, Howland Township.
The deceased was born at Whitby April 17th, 1833 and was married to Rachel Ellis in the year 1856. They lived in the township of Scott until the year 1874 when with their family moved to the Manitoulin and settled near Kagawong in the pioneer days of Indians, forests and hardships.
He followed his trade as a farmer and carpenter. He was always known as a willing and efficient tradesman who loved his work for the joy of seeing it done well. He built his last barn for his son-in-law Thos. Nelder at the age of 79 years, when in his pride and love for his work, he mounted the great high structure of frame work and proudly walked the main plate.
As he began to fail in health he longed to see his loved ones once again which resulted in a home gathering being planed (sic).
In August 1919 all the family with the exception of one daughter, Mrs. Chas. Hennessy, Vancouver, gathered at the home of Mrs. Nelder and spent a very happy family reunion, picnics, excursions, boating and driving. All the most joyous times of the season were indulged in.
Those present were, Mrs. Geo. Kendrick and daughter Patricia, Vancouver, Mrs. Kribs and granddaughter Harriet Kribs, Sturgis Michigan, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Forshew Loring, Parry Sound, Mrs. G.A. Buck Sault Ste. Marie, R.L. Wyman Thessalon, D. Wyman, Mindemoya and Geo. Wyman, Spring Bay.
A photo was taken of the happy family and final farewells of a much loved and respected father.
For many years he has been an ardent Christian worker and also a member of the Kagawong Orange Lodge and a kind and effectionate (sic) father.
Under the direction of the Little Current L.O. L. a large gathering assembled at the home Monday evening and a very appropriate service was conducted by Rev. S. Greenslade usingfor the key note, "The Builder".
The following morning the remains were conveyed by motor to Kagawong to a distance of twenty miles where they were met by the Kagawong L.O.L. and conducted to the church which had been beautifully decorated for the occasion and a large gathering of old time neighbours and friends were in waiting.
After the funeral services which were conducted by Rev. J. McLaughlin, the remains were laid to rest in the Kagawong cemetery beside his beloved wife who passed away in the year 1887.
He is not dead but sleeping,
To wake on that golden shore,
With friends in the Master's keeping.
Where parting shall be no more.
