Deacon Wycliff remembered as a man of service

Deacon Wilbert A. Wycliff was remembered as a true man of service during a funeral Mass celebrating his life at St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Dayton Jan. 20.

Deacon Wycliff died Jan. 5. He was 99.

“He lived 99 years and covered a lot of territory, dangerous territory,” Bishop Curtis Guillory, SVD, said during his homily. “But he was a man of faith. He loved the Lord. ”

Deacon Wycliff served as deacon at St. Joseph the Worker from the early 1980s until 1998. He also served in the Army during World War II, as a teacher, and as a chaplain at the Hightower Unit of the Texas Department of Corrections.
