GARLAND - David Lester Wyman passed away Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, at his home after a long courageous battle with cancer. He was born Sept. 1, 1943, in Augusta, son of Lester and Mildred (Knowles) Wyman.

Throughout the years, Dave enjoyed his racing cars, camping trips, fishing, hunting, four-wheeling, gardening, and trips to Fryeburg Fair. Toward the end, he loved to watch his nephew, Chance pull horses. But his greatest joy came from being around people and always having a way to make that person laugh and smile.

Dave was a hardworking man for many years. He worked at Prouty Ford for 12 years and was a teacher at Dexter Regional Vocational Technical School for 25 years.

He owned and operated his own construction business for 25 years before retiring.

He is survived by his loving wife, Jody (Lessard) Wyman of Garland; son, David Wyman and his wife, Aimee, and grandchildren, Ryan and Morgann Wyman, all of Ripley; son, Tony Wyman and his wife, Kim, and grandchildren, Lindsey and Korie, all of Florida; daughter, DeeDee Kupferer and her husband, Mike, and grandchildren, Mike and Lisa, all of Florida; four brothers, Richard and his wife, Dianne, of Kentucky, Norman and his wife, Marsha, Melvin and his wife, Cathy, and Roger and his wife, Judy, all of Dexter; three sisters, Judy "Gaga" Garneau of Dexter, Geraldine Rizzitello and her husband, William, of Guilford, and Barbara Marshall and her husband, Gerry, of Corinna; two sisters-in-law, Vickie Easler, and Donna Spack and her husband, Ziggy, all of Guilford; brother-in-law, Allen Lessard and his wife, Cheryl, of Madison; a "special" uncle, Wilfred Hensbee of Madison; many nieces, great-nieces, nephews and great-nephews, whom he loved dearly.

He will be remembered by many close friends whom he loved very much: Buzzy Chabot and his wife, Lorie, and daughter, Kimmie, and the Chabot family; Stewart Hopkins and family; Bob and Sharon Bradford; Gary and Tina Santos; Bub and Shannan Hall and family; Robby and Tammy Beem and family; Katie Hall, who called him "Papa Troll;" and many friends he held dear to his heart. He was predeceased by his parents; younger brother, Mark; and his fishing buddy and best friend, Gary Garneau.

At his request there will be no visiting hours. Services will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, in the family lot at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Dexter. After the service, family and friends are invited to gather at the family residence in Garland.
