A son of the late Frank W. and the late Cecilia Rose (Normandy) Wilson, he was born October 21, 1941, in Lowell, and was educated in the local schools.

He also loved to spend time with his family, grandchildren, and more recently his great grandchildren. He also volunteered and was actively involved at Callery Park Senior League Baseball, and could be found at Lowell Brunswick Lanes where he was an avid bowler or the golf course, his second favorite pasttime.
For more than twenty five years, Mr. Wilson worked as a truck driver for Dupont, the former New England Nuclear (NEN) in Billerica before his retirement. He was a communicant of St. Margaret's Church.
