Obituary Condolences

Billy Glenn Wilson 11/7/1971~3/14/2005 Billy Glenn Wilson, age 33, passed away March 14, 2005 at the LDS Hospital. He was born November 7, 1971 to William and Peggy in Ft. Bragg, N.C. He spent his young years living in North Carolina, Arizona, and Utah. He graduated from El Cajon High School in California in 1990 and returned to Utah where he went to work for Consolidated Theatres. He also spent some time driving the Milk Beast for KJQ Radio Station. He met his wife, Aimee, while driving the Beast. They were married on July 17, 1993. They were blessed with their beautiful son, Dax, who was the biggest joy in Billy's life. Billy founded Vodoo Extreme in the early 90's, which became the largest gaming news site in the world. He went to work for Packard Bell after marrying and worked there as a supervisor for several years. After years of struggle, he made a come-back and co-founded The Gaming Groove Website with Edward Chen. He leaves behind his beautiful seven-year-old son, Dax; ex-wife, Aimee; his loving mother, Peggy; step-father, Jim Novasio; his father, William; step-mother, Norah Wilson; his three younger brothers, Thomas (Tanya), Sean (Jamie), and Christopher; and his nephew, Nicholas; his "favorite aunt", Dawn Nichols; Uncle Jerry and Aunt Betty; Aunt Wendy; Aunt Patsy (LeRay); Uncle Ace (Janell); Uncle Ray (Debbie); Aunt Nancy (Jerry); his boss, friend, and sometimes Dad, Randy Miller with whom Billy created soft space; and so many friends and co-workers that we can't name them all. Billy will be missed by so many for his big heart and quick wit. We want to thank the LDS ICU and staff for the love and care they gave Billy; and Lama Thupten and his wife, Jean. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Billy G. Wilson Donation Account for his son, Dax, at Zions Bank. For more information or to leave condolences, please visit www.novasio.com.
