He graduated High School in Springhill, Louisiana. Upon graduation, Wyman moved to Kingsville, Texas, where he worked on the King Ranch before embarking on his professional career in the Petrochemical Industry with Hudson Engineering.

Wyman was a man of multi-talents, and was proud to be known as a hard worker. 

While Wyman considered Texas his native state, he moved to Antioch, CA after meeting his future wife Karen where they would spend almost 30 years together. Besides his family and friends, he loved the rodeo, horses, dogs, and was an avid sports fan. He played basketball, softball, golf, racquetball and tennis.
