William Alexander Wyckoff


On January 29, 2011, at the age of 99, William Alexander Wyckoff,
surrounded by his children, left this world to join His Lord and Savior.

Born in Hoboken, NJ, on January 14th, 1912, Bill 'Buddy' Wyckoff led a long and
productive life. He grew up in Sea Bright, NJ and then at an early age moved with
his family to Washington, DC. The son of a carpenter and tile mason, Bill earned
honors at
McKinley High School where he participated in sports and became a
Major in the cadet corp.

Bill served his community and his nation as a member of the Metropolitan Police
Force and then the Capital Police and lastly as a member of the Uniformed Service
of the US Secret Service. After retirement he continued to work in construction
and then with the Small Business Administration.

He loved life and lived it well. He lost his wife Irene far too early in life. He spent
many years traveling to spend time with his children and grand children in Louisa,
Virginia; Lebanon, New Hampshire and Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Amelia and his sisters,
Katrina and Gladys, and his brothers Charles and Harry, and his much loved wife,
Irene.

Bill left this earth but his legacy and spirit continue with his children, Judy (Bill),
Nancy (Richard) and Charles (Vicki), and their children and now a great
granddaughter. His grandchildren Deborah (Gray), Matthew, Michael (Megan),
Tommy, Travis (Patty), McKay, Alexander, Zachary, Connor and Lucas will
carry great memories of their grandfather. He was able to meet and hold his great
granddaughter Lucy.
