John Wylde, 77, of Dartmouth, died peacefully on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 at St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford. He was the husband of Lynn Wylde.
He was a graduate of Milton Academy and Harvard College where he played hockey. He loved outdoor sports of all kinds, especially sailing.
His love of the environment lead him to becoming a conservationist. He volunteered for and became president of “green” organizations, most recently Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust (DNRT) where he believed that one begins to make a difference closest to home.
He is survived by his sons, J. MacRae Wylde and Peter I. Wylde; his most beloved granddaughter, Fiona Wylde; and his former wife, Seddon Wylde.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to DNRT, 404 Elm St., Dartmouth, MA 02748. For online tributes please visit: www.waring-sullivan.com
