In Memory of Frank Wyle

It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Frank Wyle, who founded the Craft & Folk Art Museum with his wife Edith Wyle, passed away peacefully at his ranch in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

At 97 years, Mr. Wyle still offered wise council to our board and encouraged us to excel. Mr. Wyle will be long remembered by CAFAM’s board of directors, staff, volunteers and its members who have long enjoyed Frank’s company and generosity.

We extend our most heartfelt sympathy to the Wyle family. He will be truly missed by his family and all of us at CAFAM.

CAFAM will be accepting donations in Frank’s memory at the family’s request.
