Pallbearers will be sons and grandsons. Mr. Wilson was a native of Dutton, Alabama and a resident of Jacksonville since 1962. He attended Dutton Elementary School and graduated from Pisgah High School in 1962, where he met and married his high school sweetheart, Barbara Tinker. He was a Methodist and never moved his membership from Chaney's Chapel United Methodist Church in Dutton, Ala., although he attended church with his family at First Baptist Church of Jacksonville until he became homebound with Parkinson's Disease in 2004. He attended Jacksonville State College but graduated from Jacksonville State University in 1967. He also earned his Masters and Ed.S post graduate degrees from the University of Alabama, which helped him become an avid UA fan. He became a teacher and taught almost every subject while teaching at Cedar Springs, Post Oak Elementary School and Saks Jr. High School, teaching science and physical education. Mr. Wilson also taught adjunct classes for J.S.U. at Gadsden State Jr. College for several semesters. He grew up on a farm in Dutton, Ala. and was known to be a hard worker. He drove a bus in high school and while attending college at J.S.U. and used the money to pay his way through college. After marriage, he planted a garden every summer; raising watermelons, sweet corn and other vegetables for his family and friends. This became his hobby, along with fishing and collecting knives. Another hobby during midlife was the development of a home video business in which he video taped weddings, ballgames, funerals, cheerleading clinics or any special events in the home. He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Pauline Wilson; a sister, Linda Gail Deerman; two brothers in law, Donald Deerman and Jim Womack. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Nancy Dalizu, a friend and caregiver for 10 years and Dr. Hannah and the nursing staff at ALACARE for their loving care. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made to the Barbara T. and Jimmy D. Wilson Scholarship Fund, c/o Jacksonville State University, 700 Pelham Road, N., Jacksonville, AL 36265.
