"BUTCH WYSE" is what they called him

    Clarence Almond Wyse "Butch" was born on July 23, 1945 to the late Clarence and Ruth Wyse. His brother preceded him in death as an infant.

    Butch was educated in the Philadelphia Public School System. He attended BOK High School. He worked a variety of jobs and retired from Progress Lighting. Butch was a member of Greater St. Matthew's Baptist Church. Butch married the love of his life Deborah Christine and they had four beautiful children. Deborah preceded him in death. Butch loved his in-laws like his own siblings.
