Wilson family , so sorry to hear the news of Mr J D. I will always remember the years he coached the Three Creeks Little League, he was so good teaching the boys and I am sure he left lasting impressions on them.
My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Wilson family.

JD Wilson was a good man. My son, Adam and Caleb grew up together. Adam didn’t have a father’s influence. JD kind of took him under his wings and treated him like his own son. Adam learned to get up early with Caleb and work the chicken houses. When hunting season rolled around Adam and Caleb as little boys were allowed to be a part of the excitement at the deer camp. Adam has expressed to me many times how important this was for him while growing up. I will forever be grateful to JD and Patricia for sharing their home with Adam. I’m praying for all of you and love you all, especially Caleb so very much. God bless all of you.
