Death • 05.11.12

Wayland Shipman was born March 23, 1930 in Vera, Texas.

Raised in Seymour, Texas, Shipman relocated to the D-FW Metroplex in 1970.

A gift from God, Shipman was called home on May 4, 2012.  Wayland was always there to lend a helping hand and would talk to anyone standing still.  We will miss the smile on his face, but we will always have the memories of a true country gentleman.

Shipman is survived by his daughters, Rea Brech and Hope Osborne; five grandchildren; and three of his 10 siblings: Olaff and Orgie Shipman of Seymour, and Marie Tuck of Yokon, Okla.

A memorial service will be at 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, at McKinney Memorial Baptist Church, at 4805 Arborlawn Drive in Fort Worth.
