My wife Martha and I have the fondest memories of Dr. Wilson. I was a Resident in EENT in Dayton in 1963-64. He was excellent with his patients and helped the Residents develop their skills. I also then had recently learned to fly and we would fly to West Virginia to perform cataract surgery. Unfortunately I transferred to a residency in Detroit to specialize in ENT, but in following years Dr Wilson would always have a welcoming hand and smile when we would meet at conferences. He was an exceptional part of my development as a physician and had left me as a better person.

My sincere sympathy to the family, for your great loss. Dr.Wilson was very special and unique. There will never be another man like him. You were very blessed indeed, to have this man as your patriarch. May you find comfort in knowing he is with your matriarch and your sister, in Heaven.

I worked for Dr. Wilson for almost five years, in Vandalia, until he closed that office with the intention of retiring. I have many fond memories of him. He always knew when I was having back pain or a migraine. He would say to come back into an exam room, where he still had one exam table and I couldn't refuse. He took good care of his employees in every way he could. On several occasions, my husband would take me to his home and he would adjust my back and neck when I was in alot of pain. He was the most interesting man I ever met. He could capture an audience. I missed working for him. He loved his patients so much.
Rest in peace Dr.Wilson, I, along with all who knew you,will never forget you!!

What a wonderful caring Doctor and friend to my mother and her 6 daughters. Rosa Lee worked for Dr. Wilson both in Cincinnati and also Dayton, Ohio. She also traveled to South America and Mexico to do eye surgeries with Dr. Wilson for the people of those countries.l He was a great man of God and cared for each patient as family. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Dr Wilson was a kind and caring man. He will be remembered as the first intern and Gradview Hospital creating a path for all interns and residents to become caring Osteopaths. He will be remembered fondly by all of us at Grandview. Rest in peace.
