George “Rick” Richard Wilson, Jr., age 62, passed away suddenly on April 26, 2019. Rick was born in Winston Salem on May 10, 1956. He worked construction most of his life, finding pride in his electrical work, but he was truly a jack-of-all-trades. He could fix or build anything.

In his spare time, he loved fishing, hunting, vermiculture, gardening and was an avid NASCAR fan. But most of his time was spent with his family. Rick loved his family so much and they loved him. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend.

Coming to your house to get wood and he was "all about his worm farm". We hope you find peace somewhere in the grief you now feel.
