Arley G. Sayman, 72, of Towanda, passed away peacefully into the presence of his Savior Saturday morning, Sept. 20, 2003, at his home following declining health.
Born May 8, 1931 at Bird's Maternity Home in New Albany, he was the son of the late Delan G. and Johanna Silverstrim Sayman.
Arley attended school in Sullivan County, graduating at the Cherry Township High School in 1950, the last class to graduate from Cherry High, as the name was changed to Turnpike School the next year. He entered the U.S. Air Force on January 17, 1952, serving in Alaska and Cape Cod, and received his honorable discharge on Jan. 16, 1956. Arley attended barber school in 1956 at the Philadelphia Institute of Barbering. He purchased the Don Yaw Barber Shop on Main St., Towanda in June 1959, serving his faithful customers there until the building was closed in Dec. of 1990. He then moved to Wysox where he enjoyed a loyal clientele until retiring on May 22, 1993, with more than 37 years of barbering, to enjoy gardening, hunting, cycling and camping.
On Aug. 13, 1961, Arley married Martha Colton, Daughter of Melvin and Marleta Wilcox Colton, at the bride's home in LeRoy.
Mr. Sayman was a member of the Independent Baptist Church, Towanda, where he served as trustee, treasurer, deacon and Sunday School teacher. With a love for his Lord Jesus Christ, he had a desire to have others know life eternal in Jesus, who is the way, the truth and the life (John 14;6).
Surviving are his wife of 42 years, Martha Sayman, at home; his sister and brother-in-law, Regina and Irvin Swank of Sayre; nieces, Gail Decker of Ulster, Roberta Moore and her husband Dennis Moore of Chemung, N.Y.; Johanna Kinney and her husband David Kinney of Chemung, N.Y.; nephews, Irvin Swank and his wife Dawn Swank of Elmira, N.Y., and Harry Swank and his wife Cathy Swank of Hermitage, Tenn.
He was preceded in death by an infant sister, Norma Mae Sayman, in 1933 and by a nephew, Vernon Swank.
The funeral service will be held Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 11 a.m. at the Independent Baptist Church, Cherry Street, Towanda, with Pastor Donn Hauser officiating. Interment will follow in the LeRoy Cemetery with Towanda American Legion Post No. 42 according military honors.
The family will receive friends Monday evening from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Maryott-Bowen Funeral Home, 217 York Ave., Towanda, Pa. The family suggests that memorial contributions may be directed to the Independent Baptist Church, 109 Cherry St., Towanda, Pa. 18848-2001, or to Guthrie Hospice, RR1 Box 154, Towanda, Pa. 18848-9737 in Arley G.
