Met the love of his life, "Betty" Elizabeth Wesley, got married and had 5 kids, Georgann, Melody, John, Joe and Jerry. He has been a member of the St. Pete Eagles Club for 27 years. He cared more for others than himself, often asking are you OK? He has 12 grandkids and 17 great-grandkids. His older brother, Wilbur Jr. is the last of the siblings, losing their sister, Barbara Stoltz, last year on the very same day as Dad. Pop is fearless and liked thrills so at 80, he rode Space Mou-ntain at Disney World with his son, Jerry. He loved cruises, and he could put away some food. On his last cruise, the more he ate, the stronger he became, until no walker was needed. He loved life, and everyone his life touched, loved him. Funeral services will be held at Memorial Park Funeral Home, 5750 49th St. N. St. Petersburg, on Sept. 7, 2013 at 1 pm. Written By Joe Strobridge
