Obituary for John "Jack" Wilson

John “Jack” Wilson of Wixom moved on to his heavenly home on November 18, 2020. He was 92 years old. Jack was born on November 23, 1927 in Detroit to the late Edith (nee Lansbury) and Justice Wilson.

Jack graduated in 1945 from Walled Lake High School and attended Bob Jones University. He was self-employed as a painter for many years before working at Williams International for 15 years. He enjoyed hunting, watching little league baseball and spending time with friends and family in both Michigan and at his second home in Zephryhills, Florida. Jack’s greatest love was music. He could always be heard singing a hymn or whistling a tune. Singing in the church choir was one of his greatest joys and it was there that he met his wife. Jack will always be remembered for his love of children and for the laughter he would bring to everyone he met.

Jack is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Peggy (nee McDaniel), son Mark (Cheri) Wilson and daughter Joy (Anthony) Bowman. Besides his wife and children, he is also survived by his grandchildren; Alexandria Bowman, Brittany (Sean) Burnett, Drew Wilson, Seth Wilson, Gabriel (Suzie) Wilson, Noah Wilson, Luke Wilson, Ellianna Bowman, Nathaniel Wilson and John “Jack” Bowman. He is also survived by a brother, George (Shirley) Wilson and a sister Nancy Alexander as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brothers Gordon Wilson, Donald Wilson and Doug Wilson, and sisters Constance Shelton and Eleanor Morrow. The family would like to give a special thank you to the loving caregivers and special friend, The Morton Family.
