William H. Wilson, Jr. (Bill), 83, peacefully went home to be with our Lord on Friday, October 28, 2016, at Bentley Assisted Living in Branchville.

Bill, the son of William H. Wilson, Sr., and Helen Bryant Wilson, was born in East Orange on March 21, 1933. Bill was predeceased in 1965 by his infant daughter, Bonnie Sue Wilson, and both of his parents in the early 1980's.

Bill is survived by his beloved wife of 60 years, Gail, and their four children, Debra Wilson, Daniel and Judy Wilson, Donna and James Wainio, all of Sparta, and William and Edie Wilson of Augusta, as well as their eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, David and Ann Wilson, of Easley, South Carolina, and brother-in-law, Gary and Judy Huthmacher of Ocala, Florida, and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

Bill was a 1951 graduate of Grover Cleveland High School in Caldwell. Directly after High School, he enlisted and served in the United States Navy Seabees. Bill married his high school sweetheart, Gail, in 1955 and soon after they started a business, and then a family. Some of their businesses are still in operation today.

Along with his family and business interests, Bill was a member of Lafayette Federated Church, where he had been an elder, an usher and on the building committee.
