WYMAN -- Christopher Aubrey Wyman, 26 years old, was born in Carlsbad, NM, on October 11, 1983, and passed away in Albuquerque, on Wednesday, December 2, 2009. He is survived by his dearly beloveds, mother, Elizabeth A. Wyman; sister, Brooke E. Wyman; father, Charles A. Wyman; grandparents, James and Pauline Wyman, all of Albuquerque; his aunts, uncles, and cousins, out of state. Chris had many friends through the years, all attracted by his natural charm and his winning personality. He was fun loving, kind, thoughtful, and sensitive to others' feelings. After graduation from high school, he fulfilled his dream of going to college in Santa Cruz, CA, where he enjoyed his independence with his faithful companion, Harley, a Belgian Shepherd, and especially enjoyed the thrill of surfing along the California coast. After a year of college in California, Chris returned to Albuquerque and attended CNM for several years. He loved music, animals, astronomy, nature and philosophy. He was an artist, a writer, and a poet. Most of all, he wanted everyone to love each other and live in peace. Imagine by John Lennon was among his favorite songs. On the Sunday before he passed away he attended the sermon given by Franklin Graham at Calvary Chapel of Albuquerque. Sitting near the front, he was the very first to respond to the altar call, walking resolutely to the pastor's steps to rededicate his life and publicly profess his faith in Jesus Christ and the promise of eternal life through the resurrection of his Lord and Savior, just as Reverend Graham had reminded the congregation was required, as the Bible says, by the very words of Christ. Matthew 10:32. Graveside Services are planned for Monday, December 7, 2009, 1:30 p.m., at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 7999 Wyoming Blvd. NE.
