David Wilson, 61, of Craigsville, passed away Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at Summersville Regional Medical Center.

Born October 26, 1959 in Clarksburg, he was the son of the late Billy and Lemoine (Mathes) Wilson. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sister, Norma Wilson.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Lisa Wilson; sons: Daniel Dixon and David Dixon and his companion, Jodi House; grandchildren: Dawson, Maria, Miya, and Novalee Dixon; brother, Billy A. Wilson, Jr.; sisters: Kay (husband, Preston) Lee, Susie (husband, Donnie ) Clark, Shirley (husband, Paul) Moran, and Brenda Wilson (companion, Victor Lucky); and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn his passing.
