Our hearts are broken. Mr. Wilson was a special man. Loved by so many. Such fond memories of our time with him. He was such a loving and fun loving guy. When he was finishing up our pool, handed me the plunger and pulled me over his head......dressed to go out. I will always remember his laugh. Mrs. Nita and family,
you have our sincere sympathy, love and prayers during this difficult time.
He will be missed!

But then after telling him that everyday he blow his truck horn. But after that he would sometimes call me and say did I wake you. And we laugh 😂 other times I would beat him to the call saying I got you I’m up . 😝 So if you ever see me on Cornerview blowing the horn I’m telling dad hey you can join in if you like that day ! Huntley Grace Hodgeson loves doing this and I’m sure Jeb Eugene will love doing it with us the first chance he’ll get to do it !!

Me and PawPaw were always so close, I remember when I used to watch crime shows with him and he would explain everything. He would always let me get some of his gun and sneak me snacks and it showed me he loved me. He was one of the most caring, sweet and generous people I knew and I loved him so much.
