Ralph William Wyand, 88, of Hagerstown, MD, entered into the presence of the Lord on Monday, February 28, 2022 at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC. He was born December 7, 1933 in Hagerstown, MD. He was the son of the late William J. Wyand and Nona N. Wyand.
He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Rebecca G. Wyand. He is also survived by his children, Bill Wyand (wife Amy) and David Wyand (wife Beth); his grandchildren, Jacob Wyand, Andrew Wyand (wife Carrie), Tyler Wyand, Micah Wyand, Nathan Wyand (wife Claira), Abigail Wyand, Katherine Wyand; and his great-grandson, Bowyn Wyand.
Ralph was a 1951 graduate of Boonsboro High School. He also graduated from Shepherd University and the University of Maryland with degrees in secondary education.
He was employed for many years as a high school math teacher at Smithsburg High School and then later at Broadfording Christian Academy. He was a member of Broadfording Church.
He was a train enthusiast and enjoyed working on layouts at home and at the Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum. He loved his family dearly and enjoyed spending time with them, especially on the annual beach trips.
More than anything, he loved the Lord and was secure in his relationship with the Lord. He was a strong supporter of Christian education and missions, and he was involved in so many ways behind the scenes to make a difference in the lives of others. He showed us all what it really means to be a servant, to put others before himself.
A memorial service will be held on Sunday, March 6 at 3:00 pm at Broadfording Church, 13523 Broadfording Church Road, Hagerstown, MD 21740 with Pastor Bill Wyand officiating.
Family will receive friends at the church one hour prior to the service.
