Obituary for Waymon E. Wittman

Waymon Earl Wittman, 81, passed away October 16, 2018, after a long illness, in Naperville, Illinois, surrounded by his family. Waymon was born February 24, 1937, in Stuttgart, Arkansas, to Lucille and John Wittman. He is preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Lloyd Edward “Eddie” Wittman and John Wittman Jr. Waymon and his wife Barbara moved to Naperville in 1986 for his job after becoming empty nesters.

Waymon graduated from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, and was a staunch Razorback. He began his career as a salesman at Foley’s Department Store in Houston, Texas, where he met the love of his life, Barbara Brock on a blind date, and they married soon afterwards. Waymon also served in the Texas National Guard and was called for duty during the Berlin Crisis.

He also worked for Walgreens as a toy buyer and eventually found his passion as a toy salesman. Before he retired 16 years ago he was Vice President for CBS Toys, New York, but he always considered himself a toy salesman.

He and his wife enjoyed traveling the country in their Airstream, meeting new people and making priceless memories along the way. He was known for his big smile and booming voice and never met a stranger.

Waymon is survived by his wife Barbara Brock Wittman and their two children and three granddaughters: Wade Wittman (Sherri) Naperville; Wendy Wittman (Kevin Cupo) of Hewitt, New Jersey; Sheila Wittman, Oakland, New Jersey; Ashley Duncan (Scott), Elmhurst, Illinois, and Julie Wittman, Ridgewood, New Jersey. He is also survived by his sister, Cindy Ontiveros (Jerry), Lubbock, Texas; sister-in-law Shirley Hanks Wittman, Knoxville, Tennessee, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Memorial Services will be held November 10, 2018, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church at 11 a.m., visiting at 10:00. Internment will be in Knoxville, Tennessee.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 1310 Shepherd Dr., Naperville, IL 60565 or to Peace Hospice, 1717 N. Naper Boulevard, Suite 301, Naperville, IL 60563.
