He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Bobbie Strayhorn Wylie, two children, Cheryl and Mark, and his sister, Wilma Walk. He was preceded in death by his grandson, Jacob Wylie, and his parents, Malcolm and Mable Wylie. Funeral services for Mr. Wylie will be held on Friday, April 28, at First Baptist Church of Covington.
