Dr. Wyngarden began his medical practice in 1939 as one of only four practicing physicians in Wheaton. In an age of medical specialization, managed health care and urgent care centers, the career of a small-town doctor stands in sharp contrast. In earlier days, a doctor was expected to make house calls, and Dr. Wyngarden visited many of the early residents of Wheaton in their homes, including Dan and Ada Rice and Col. Robert McCormick, who used to send his limousine to pick up Dr. Wyngarden for the visit. A small-town doctor was also expected to perform a variety of medical services. In addition to his thriving 50-year family practice, Dr. Wyngarden delivered more than 2,000 babies during his career and was one of the first general surgeons to perform operations at both Delnor and Central DuPage hospitals. A graduate of Wheaton College in 1932 and the University of Illinois School of Medicine in 1936, Dr. Wyngarden returned to serve his college alma mater for 37 years as the school physician. In this job, he held clinic hours twice a day, served as team physician including traveling with many of the sports teams, and supervised the operation of the student health center. In gratitude for his service, Wheaton College later named the health center in his honor. Dr. Hudson Armeding, Wheaton College's president at the time, commended him by saying that, `. in the 37 years that Dr. Wyngarden has been here, he never failed to answer a telephone call or to respond to a student in crisis. He fulfilled his role to be a faithful steward.' Dr. Wyngarden and his wife, Betty, were longtime members of College Church in Wheaton.He also servedin the Army Medical Corps from 1943 to 1945. Surviving are his wife, Elizabeth O'Hair Wyngarden; children, Judith Wyngarden (C. William) Pollard of Wheaton, Elizabeth Wyngarden (George) Toles of Edmonds, Wash., and John C. (Danette) Wyngarden of Wheaton; sister, Lois Wyngarden Hakes of Baltimore, Md.;11 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.
