    Joe Wyatt was a dear friend and co-worker at Crum and Forster in Abilene for many years. He always was there if needed in any capacity and always had his employees best interests at heart.

    He was a caring husband, father and grand dad as well as a friend who will be missed by many. My sympathy with the family.
