March 25, 1943 - October 20, 2020
On October 20, 2020 heaven gained an angel and Today, December 18, 2020, we celebrate the life of Byron Lee Wilson. A little bit about the life of Byron Lee Wilson. He was born on March 25, 1943 to Amsa Wilson and Betty Wilson in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. He was a son of a military family. He lived in multiple countries during his younger life. In June 1962 he joined the navy and served during the Vietnam War as a radar man on USS Iwo Jima and USS Tom Green County LST 1159. After he left the navy in July 1966, he worked as an assistant manager for Woolworth in St. Louis, MO. While working with Woolworth, he met his future wife Sandra L. Shell and they were engaged after 2 weeks of dating and married shortly after on Oct 14, 1967. During their 53 years of marriage, they had 3 boys. He never had a “career” job but did many things during his 77 years. His favorite things in life besides his family were baseball, football, and fishing. During the war he was exposed to Agent Orange and this affected him later in life. Ultimately those health issues took him from us. He is survived by his Wife Sandra L. Wilson, Son Aaron Wilson and wife Melba Wilson, Son Eric Wilson and wife Tamra Wilson, and son Jason Wilson and wife Summer Dame, Sister Jo Ann and David Jameson, Niece Casey and Boo Honeycutt daughter Addison. He has 6 Grandchildren Alysha Wilson, Blake Wilson, Rabecca Wilson, Colby Wilson, Caitlin Wilson, and Kylee Dame Wilson. For those that knew him, he always welcomed you into his family with open arms. He was never a man of many words, but always gave everything he had to his family. He left this physical world knowing how much his family and friends loved him. He will never leave our hearts and our minds. Family events will never be the same without him, but I know he will always be with us in spirit. We celebrate the life of one Byron Lee Wilson knowing that one day we will all be reunited. Until then, know that we all love you and will miss you. I know that you are finally able to rest in peace.
