Chris E. Wilson, 60, of Evansville, IN passed away Thursday, July 4, 2024. He was born in Evansville, Indiana on August 26, 1963 to the late James C. Wilson and Grace Imogene Clemons and later was blessed by a loving step-father, Ben Saddler. Chris attended Tecumseh High School and dedicated many years working in the trucking industry. He was cherished by his friends, family, and neighbors for his kindness and generosity, traits that defined him. Chris battled type 2 diabetes and took pride in his Cherokee heritage. He owned a semi-truck and trailer, motorcycles and golf cart, and found joy in collecting items such as his $6 million dollar man collection and cherished his toys both big and small. Chris was an extremely hard worker and was naturally talented as a mechanic. An avid lover of the outdoors, Chris surrounded himself with pets including dogs, catfish, and one time he even had a pony named Scooby Doo. He was a sweet and wonderful soul that would always go the extra mile for anyone! Chris had a strong faith in God and attended as a visitor, The Hills Church. He was a very dedicated son, especially to his mom, who spoiled him rotten. Chris is survived by his step-sister, Karen Saddler-Presley, cousin, Anita Huebner (Don), cousins, Terry Grimwood (Bob), Larry Clemons Jr. (Debbie), Randy Clemons (Cindy), special nephew Maddaux, the Saddler and Hyson families, his colleagues at Gibco, and numerous other cousins, nieces, nephews, neighbors, and friends, and anyone that knew him, he loved them. He was preceded in death by his parents and all of his aunts and uncles. Family and friends are invited to gather for visitation from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Friday, July 12, 2024, at Alexander North Chapel, 4200 Stringtown Road, Evansville, IN.
