Mr. Wilson was a fine writer and a fine man. We were fortunate to get to know him at the DeGolyer Library at SMU. Part of the Greatest Generation, he will be remembered for his service to his country, his devotion to his family, and his creative writing.

I didn't get to know John until after I retired from TI and wrote about about my time there. Through great luck, John was asked to do a review of it for the TI newsletter. I'm sure John's write-up provided most of the sales! Some years later, when I thought I had learned to write, I re-read John's blurb, and realized I had not even come close. His writing inspired me, as a goal, but a goal which I could never reach. One of my treasures is a first edition of his High John the Conqueror, which I had John sign for me last year. One of the highlights of my life was working with John on the team to do the TI history book. We'll not see the likes of John again. Rest easy, my friend. You earned it.

Ted and family, You know what an amazing man John was, but I'd like to share with you that he was a bright light in my day when I had the privilege of spending time with him. I feel honored to have known him & will greatly miss him.
