Dudley Anthony Wilson

Place of birth: Grange Hill, Westmoreland-Jamaica

Dudley Anthony Wilson ‘Mr. Wil’ passed away on November 28th, 2011. He gave up the fight —a 9 years battle with Cancer. He had just celebrated his 81st birthday.

Daddy was born in a very rural village called Grange Hill in Westmoreland, Jamaica. He was born on November 26, 1930 and was the last of 3 children; the older two siblings being girls.

He was raised by his grandmother. At the age of 14 years old, he stowed away to ‘Town’ Spanish Town, St Catherine, Jamaica, for better opportunities. It was there he met the love of his life, his wife, Olive Claire Wilson.

“Duds”affectionately called by his wife was a proud father of five children: Walter Jarrett, retired Army veteran, Dr. Angela Wilson Brewton, Everton Desmond Wilson, retired Navy veteran, Fitzroy Anthony Wilson and Viviene Patricia Wilson Castle.

Dad and mom enjoyed over 49 years of happy marriage. They migrated to the United States some 40 years or more. After more than 30 years in New York, they then relocated to Kissimmee, Fl.

Daddy was one of the hardest working men who ever lived. His motto was “hard work has never killed anyone.”
He held many jobs over the years—at times more than 2-3 silmultaneously.
He was a farmer, a truck driver, a personal chauffeur, an entrepreneur, a security guard, a grounds keeper and a property manager.

Mom and Dad retired in 2004 to the Poinciana, Kissimmee, Fl area. They fell in love with the quiet, peaceful tranquil community where they made new friends and became entrenched in their community and church.
Dad was a very active member of the Kissimmee United Methodist Church and served in the Men’s Ministry as well as a member of the Senior Choir.

As one of his friend echoed, Dad was an extraordinary human being. He had many “best” friends and had no enemies. He would help anyone who needed his help. He was that listening ear that we often need in dealing with life’s issues. He was a man of wisdom and integrity.

I miss him so much. I missed him before, but still so much now. I will forever feel the void. I miss our talks; the anticipation of his phone calls, the sound of his voice, and the look on his face from our surprise visits. I love you Dad!!!!!! You will forever live in our hearts.
