I am Wardell Daris Patterson. Originally from Conroe, TX., I lived, with grandmother (Bertha Williams), mother (Ernestine Patterson), sister (Ida Gloria Patterson-Burd), and a younger brother (Collis B. Patterson) in the Georgetown area of Seattle, WA from 1959-1964. My best friend/s as a child was Ricky Lyman, and his family.
I am seeking the the whereabouts of any of the Lyman family members. Ed, the father. Mary, the mother. Patricia, the daughter, and my friend Richard "Ricky."
It would truly do my heart good to be able to contact any of the living family members and/or their offspring. I am composing a bibliography and the Lyman's impacted my life in a manner unequalled to any I've ever known at the ripe age 48.
I am a geography major at the University of Washington where I'm in the process of completeing my final year after returning to school thirty (30) years later. I am also founder and executive director of OutReach Ministries, USA, where I've worked successfully with gangs and at-risk youths since 1988. You may visit my websites at:
