So sorry to learn of this fine man's passing. Wilson is a great guy and such a pleasure to work with. He had great humor and we all enjoyed laughing with him. He is missed and will always be missed. He was truly loved by all his co-workers. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I love you Wilson.
Thanks for the laughs, the knowledge you shared and the smiles.

So sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family. I remember when we used to pick names for Christmas in the Telephone office. I still have the wolf ring box that Wilson gave me. It will always be special. We missed y'all out at the Centex Sportsman's Club.
From our family to yours,
Our condolences,
Lori and Paul Atkins
