Samuel S., passed away on June 25, 2014, at the age of 89. Born in 1924 in Cincinnati, Wilson was the son of Elizabeth Smith Wilson and Russell Wilson, the Mayor of Cincinnati from 1929 until 1937. Wilson was on the faculty of the University of Cincinnati, College of Law from 1965 until his retirement in 1993, and served as its Dean from 1974 until 1978. Wilson was also very active in a variety of civic activities, and served in a number of leadership roles on different boards. Wilson was perhaps best known as "Judge Paul Trevor," the role he played on WCPO's "Juvenile Court" television show, which ran from 1975 until 1983. Wilson is survived by his wife of nearly sixty-one years, Anne N. Wilson, his four children, Clare Richart (Brett), Eliza Kirkpatick (Richard), Russell Wilson (Julie), and Andrew Wilson (Susan), as well as twelve grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, July 18th at Knox Presbyterian Church in Hyde Park, with a Memorial Visitation at the church beginning at 10:00 AM on the morning of the service. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be directed to the UC Law School's Domestic Violence Clinic, Knox Presbyterian Church, or the Deupree House's Good Samaritan Mission. Gwen Mooney-Elden Good Chapel (513-871-3433) entrusted with the arrangements.
