Obituary

Beloved man, George Larry Wyatt, passed away January 28, 2018 at the age of 95 in Spring Branch, Texas. George was born at home January 8, 1923 in Floresville, Texas to his parents George William Wyatt and Annie Hennessey Wyatt. He was preceded in death by wife, Geneva Morris Wyatt; son, Randy Wyatt; daughter, Karen Tanguma; Brothers, Rexford Wyatt, Edward Wyatt; and sister, Lyndall Blackwell. He is survived by his sister, Leatrice Powers and brother, Leon Wyatt; daughter-in-law, Susan Wyatt; son-in-law, Nisano Tanguma; grandchildren, Nicholas Tanguma, Natica Tanguma, Justin Tanguma, Amber Wyatt, Ryan and wife Calley Wyatt, Lindsay Wyatt, Shawn and wife Jennifer Wyatt, Ashley Wyatt, Miranda Wyatt; great grandchildren, Alexis Hernandez, Harper Wyatt, Royce Wyatt, Camilla Reese; great great granddaughter, Adrianna Wyatt. George lived with his family in Elmendorf, Texas helping on the family farm until 1939 when the family moved to San Antonio, Texas. George joined the U.S. Army at the age of 18. He was introduced to his wife, Geneva by his sister, Leatrice, and married at age 19. They moved to Wisconsin where George was stationed; they also lived in New York, California, Florida, Arizona, and Germany. George joined San Antonio's Harlandale Lambskin Masonic Lodge in 1962; later joining Brahan Masonic Lodge in LaVernia, Texas where he became a Master Mason. He gladly became a member of the Masonic Motor Patrol, as George was able to ride his treasured motorcycle to events, in parades, and attend charitable functions. In 1963, George and Geneva purchased their first home in San Antonio, where they lived until 2010. After serving in the Army, he enlisted in the Air Force, and became a pilot. He then was in Civil Service retiring after 30 years. Retirement didn't appeal to George, so he started a trucking company; his son joined him as a truck driver. Itching to try something different, George started a successful used car business. George had many friends that he enjoyed visiting and taking them to try new diners, which he liked to rate the food and price. He enjoyed sampling his daughter-in-law's baked goods with coffee on a regular basis while sitting by the lake talking. He enjoyed spending time with his kids and grandchildren; around the ranch, watching their games and racing go karts, or a trip to Luby's for dinner. George was a gardener when he was young, so when he retired, he planted and tended to a productive acre of garden at his son's home. Motorcycles was one of his special loves; washing them, maintaining them, buying accessories for his treasures, and riding near and far. Sturgis motorcycle rally was a special treat he shared with his son. He also shared a Florida trip with his friend, Andy. Seeing him riding at the age of 85 with his wife sitting behind him was a treat; they had shared riding together 40 years earlier too. There were countless other trips and adventures, too many to mention, with numerous friends. God was number one in his life; he believed, studied his bible and lessons, and attended church. George was outgoing, went with the flow, was fun, and was a true friend. He will be sorely missed by all.
