Tombstone Thursday - Wyman

Indiana Bones ran into Pat Coselett in Rural King last night and had a delightful conversation.  I showed him the cool knife that I had just bought and showed him where I got it so he could buy one, too!  Then he told me about an interesting man by the name of Gunner Wyman and about Gunner's tombstone.

"I had rather be here than in Jasper, Ind." - Gunner Wyman put on his marker as a reminder of the great rival basketball teams at Vincennes Lincoln with Jasper teams!  Mr. Wyman, a native of Palmersville, Tenn., served as a teacher and basketball coach at Wingo, Nortonville and South Hopkins high schools and schools in Indiana, including Vincennes Lincoln, where his team won the 1981 state championship. He was inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in 1991.

An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who has been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast simply because I found it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this subject here on your web page.
