Wyatt Jacob Bayer Jr., age 93, passed away in Mobile, AL on November 8, 2021. He was born in Nashville, TN on August 3, 1928 to Wyatt Bayer Sr. and Zadie (Patterson) Bayer.
After serving his country honorably for 4 years in the United States Army, Mr. Bayer worked for Scott Paper Company and retired after 37 years of dedicated work. He had a reputation for being a helper, especially when it came to fixing things that were broken for loved ones and friends at church.
