He was born March 23, 1923, in Granton, Wisconsin, to the late Wayne and Edna (Brandt) Wyman. Bill graduated from Spencer High School in 1941. After graduation, he joined the U.S. Army, where he proudly served his country during World War II as a member of the 496th AAA Gun Battalion.
On April 12, 1947, he married his high school sweetheart, Ermine "Mickie" Cramer. He and Mickie owned and operated Bill's Red Owl in Abbotsford, Spencer and Kewaunee, and Wyman's Skogmo clothing store in Kewaunee before retiring to Cape Coral in 1984. Bill enjoyed his retirement as an active member of Abiding Love Lutheran Church in Cape Coral, where he served as president of the men's club and organizer of the church food pantry. He was also an avid gardener and loved caring for his beautiful yard and fruit trees. He took every opportunity to tell jokes and loved to make people laugh. In his younger days, he also enjoyed golfing, hunting, fishing and playing bridge.
