Wilson worked as a pipefitter/plumber with GAF and Anitec, also a Union member of the local 112. His family was the most important thing to him he was very active in their lives.
He was a coach for many years in youth bowling at Sunset Lanes and later helped with the Windsor High School bowling program. As a family man that "adopted" many of his children and grandchildren friends, he was always there to help anyone who needed it to give advice, put a roof over their heads, food in their bellys or homes, fix a problem, give a dollar, loan a car or give a ride, whatever he simply did it. Was a true outdoors men. Fishing, hunting, strolling through the woods, berry picking to make the best homemade jam, planting and growing amazing gardens of flowers and vegetables. He loved to cruise the junk yard with his best friend Larry to fix those "blasted cars", loved his cookies n treats lately the sugar cookies Brittany Ostrom made for him. "Do your best, you will never fail"
