I'm sorry for your lost. Death is never easy for anyone to deal with , because it wasn't God purpose. I truly believe that one day he will live again, because God promised his people in Re 24:4 that he will do away with death and also in Joh 11:25 clearly says that " those exercising faith in me ,even though he dies, will come to life . One day we will all be together again with the ones we lost in death and will never have to experience it again. If you would like more information, please visit one of our local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's witnesses or visit us online at Jw.org

Thomas Edwin “Tommy” Wilson

November 24, 1934

March 8, 2017

 

Savannah native Thomas Edwin “Tommy” Wilson (age 82 years) passed peacefully, relieved of the difficult illness of which he has suffered for more than a decade. He was the only child of the late William Samuel Wilson and Leticia Chambers Wilson. Tommy was a graduate of Carlyle Military School in Bamberg, South Carolina. He worked for Union Camp Corporation, then Savannah Electric and Power Company from which he retired after 37 years of service; and was a member of IBEW Local 1208.

Tommy enjoyed camping vacations in the Carolinas, Tennessee and Georgia especially during the fall of the year; as well as hunting and fishing. He is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Patsy Kennedy Wilson. Despite his failing memory and inability to communicate in meaningful conversation, Tommy would daily tell Patsy he loved her and kiss her hand.

He is also survived by 2 children: daughter, Carol Ann Barbee and husband Bill, and son, Thomas Edwin “Eddie” Wilson, Jr. and wife Lisa; granddaughter, Rachel Wilson Hilton and husband Stephen Hilton, grandson Stephen Samuel Wilson, grandson Alex Barbee; and great-granddaughter Payton Elizabeth Wilson who always made him smile.

Thank you for your prayers, love and support during his illness. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 201 Television Circle, Savannah, GA 31406, or St. Joseph’s/Candler Foundation, 5356 Reynolds Street, Suite 400, Savannah, GA 31405 (to benefit children living with diabetes in summer camp).

A Graveside Service will be held Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. in the Greenwich section of Bonaventure Cemetery with longtime friend Brother Billy Miller officiating.   The visitation will be one hour prior to the service in the cemetery.
