William M. ‘Bill’ Wiseman
William M. “Bill” Wiseman passed away Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, in Cypress, Texas. He was born to William and Clarissa Wiseman on Nov. 3, 1932, in New York City, N.Y., and moved to his family’s historic homestead in La Vernia in 1933.
He earned a degree in engineering from Texas A&I in Kingsville and served proudly as a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers during the Korean War. He worked 24 years for Tidewater Compression as senior vice president. Bill enjoyed restoring antique vehicles and collecting rare artifacts. He also had a keen interest in military history and family genealogy. He worked diligently to restore his family’s 1896 home. Bill believed in helping others and leaving a place better than how he found it. He was an avid supporter of the La Vernia Fire Department and youth football. He gave generously to anyone in need. He made friends with everyone and all will miss his big laugh, said his family.
The family would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to the ICU of North Cypress Hospital and Good Shepherd Hospice for their care, and especially C&S Caregivers for their support.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his wife, Mary; children Walter R. Wiseman and Lydia Wiseman Jones; son-in-law George; grandsons Robert Abel and wife Sarah and John Abel and wife Jennifer; great-grandchildren Cayla, Crysta, Kaden, and Falon; and cousins Jim and Anita Beard and Beth and Grant Durtschi.
A memorial service was held on Thursday, Aug. 21, at 3 p.m. in the Cypress-Fairbanks Funeral Home in Cypress, officiated by the Rev. Fred Carter.
A graveside service will be held on Friday, Aug. 29, at 2 p.m. in the Concrete Cemetery in La Vernia.
