Theodore Samuel Wyman was born to Samuel Walter Wyman and Faye Turnby Wyman at the family farm Jan. 23, 1929. He was baptized by Rev. Richard Winker March 31, 1929 at the Silver Creek Methodist Church. Ted attended country school Dist. 23 through 8th grade often riding horse or driving horse and buggy with his younger siblings. Ted graduated from the Silver Creek High School in 1946.
Ted and Donna Joan Nelson were married Aug. 29, 1948 at the Silver Creek Methodist Church. They started farming in the Osceola and Fairview areas, before buying and moving to a farm South of Silver Creek. On this farm they built their dream home. Ted had cut walnut and cedar trees to be used in the interior of the house.
In 1990 Ted and Joan retired to a home in Silver Creek. Ted continued to go to the farm daily to feed the cattle and help on the farm his youngest son took over. Ted could have coined the famous quote, “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.”
Ted and Joan had four children, Janea Susan, Thomas Theodore, Mark Jeffrey, and Gayle Christine. Ted dearly loved his children, their spouses, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He took pride in them and his farm.
In his earlier years Ted served on the District 7 school board, Farm Bureau, and Silver Creek Co-op board.
