Wilson earned the rank of Eagle Scout as a youth and was a pitcher on the high school baseball team, the Seminole Indians, during his time at Seminole County High School. He attended and graduated from the University of Georgia in 1964, a journalism major, where he met his future wife Janis, of Atlanta, Georgia, also a graduate of UGA. He was an avid recreational tennis player, finding immense enjoyment following Seminole County high school and college sports including UGA and University of Miami football, Seminole County high school basketball and even traveled to Athens, Georgia on occasion to take in UGA tennis tournaments. Wilson conscientiously managed his and his family’s business concerns and spent some years as a stock broker, fulfilling his lifetime interest in the financial markets. He deeply loved his South Georgia community, and his heart never left Seminole County; however, had a little known adventurous side visiting Israel and Hawaii and engaging in Christian missions work on a trip to Peru. Wilson was actively involved in past years in the First Covenant Church of Donalsonville, more recently advocating for and participating in the Gideons International missions work of placing Bibles worldwide and also engaged in a prison ministry. He is remembered by his family as a person of faith and inclusion, with sincere compassion for persons from every walk of life.
