Curtis R. Wyrick, 66, of Riverside, California, passed away at home, with
family at his side, on May 28, 2021. He was a hard-working, well-loved and
devoted husband, brother, father, stepdaddy, papa, father-in-law and friend
to many people.
Curt was born on June 4,1954 in St Louis, Missouri to Jude and Sarah
Wyrick. He was the last born and only boy, with three older sisters who
lovingly cared for him throughout his entire life. He joined the Air Force in
1972, and lived in Germany, Egypt and several places throughout the US,
during his twenty-year career. He loved his time in the Air Force and would
encourage any young man or woman to join our nation’s military service, if
given the chance. After a very fulfilling career, he retired and joined the
ranks of the US Postal Service, where he carried mail and made many
friends on his route, until his retirement in June of 2016. Since retiring, he
and his beloved wife, Pennie, have traveled all over the U.S., Canada and
Europe, mostly in their trusty sidekick Casita trailer, and have made many
friends and countless memories along the way, despite battling cancer for
the last 18 months. When he wasn’t traveling, he could often be found
working in their garden, watching a Cardinals game or just sitting and
enjoying life with his wife from his favorite spot on their deck.
Curt is survived by his wife, Pennie Wyrick (Clark), of Riverside; sons Brad
(Rosalind) and Matthew (Pamela); stepdaughters, Jessica Whitehouse
(Robert), Holly Mann (Marc), Sarah Beth O’Neill (James) and stepson
Matthew Clark; grandchildren, Cheyenne, Alia, and Guy Sloan, Allie
Clemente (Saul and Liam), Maddy Wyrick, Lily (Israel) Allemand, Trenton
Whitehouse, Ruby Whitehouse, Camryn, Parker and Mason Mann; sisters
Beverly Coloma and Judy (Larry) Hoock; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents Jude and Sarah Wyrick, sister,
Donna Skube (George) and longtime friend John Jolly.
Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, July 6th, at 11:00am, at Sandals
Church Palm Ave (6807 Palm Ave, Riverside), with Pastor Alfredo
officiating, followed by a graveside service at Riverside National Cemetery.
