Roy E. WILSON Obituary

News Death Notice

WILSON, Roy E. "Stubby" passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family. He was preceded in death by his father & mother, J. Roy & Ruth Wilson; brother & sister-in-law, Robert "Bob" & Margaret Wilson; sisters, Dorothy Zimmerman & Peggy Burns. In 1951 Roy was the youngest man in the city of Dayton to pass the exam & receive his HVAC license. He was employed with Holland Furnace Company for many years & retired from Refrigeration Equipment where he was foreman of the sheet metal department. That experience brought to him a challenging job, the Nutter Center where he supervised the creation & installation of ductwork & HVAC. A man of little words, he was happiest spending time with his family at Lake Cumberland or working with his hands. He is survived by his childhood sweetheart & loving wife of 66 years, Elma June; daughter, Deborah & son-in-law, Duane Quedeweit of Knoxville, TN and daughter, Kimberly Wilson & son-in-law, Bobby Davis of Florence, KY. A longtime member of Belmont United Methodist Church (2701 S. Smithville Rd.), where the family will receive friends on Tuesday, September 2, 2014 from 4-7 pm & a celebration of life service will be held on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 at 10 am. Burial will be at Miami Valley Memory Gardens. Thanks to Dr.'s Martin Schear & David Joffe for the wonderful care & concern given to Roy. Also, special thanks to Donna & Steve Siefke & to the Hospice of Dayton. As a wonderful friend once said, "Roy has the strongest handshake of any man I've ever known." In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Hospice of Dayton. To send a special message, please visit www.NewcomerDayton.com
