Graham L. "Willie" Wildasin, 81, formerly of Taneytown, MD, passed away on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at St. Joseph's Ministries in Emmitsburg. Born May 31, 1936 in Emmitsburg, MD, he was the son of the late Leroy Emmanuel and Emma Irene (Graham) Wildasin. Willie was a long-time firefighter with the Taneytown Volunteer Fire Company and a professional firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department. He was first stationed at Towson, then at Westview. He was a veteran of the United States Army Reserves. He was an avid sports fan and loved playing baseball, basketball and tennis. While playing for the old Taneytown baseball team, he received a letter of interest from the Washington Senators. Willie also enjoyed running and dancing. He is survived by daughters, "Mimi" Wildasin and Michelle "Shelley" Geiman, both of Taneytown; son, Brian Patrick Wildasin and wife Sherrie of Gettysburg, PA; grandchildren, Connor Geiman of Littlestown, PA, Sydni B. Geiman of Taneytown and Samantha "Sami" Wildasin of Gettysburg, PA; former sister-in-law, Cheryl Wildasin, nephews, Joey and Rob Wildasin, and several cousins, all of Hanover, PA; and a niece, Toshia Wildasin of Paris, France. Willie is also remembered by his former spouse, Anne Wildasin of Taneytown. He was predeceased by his brother, Michael "Mike" Wildasin. In the same spirit of his life of community service, in death Willie chose to donate his body to the Anatomy Board of Maryland for the purpose of medical and scientific research. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be announced at a later date. The family wishes to express their appreciation to the entire staff of St. Joseph's Ministries, especially on Terrace, to those who gave Willie such excellent care during the last 6-plus years of his life. May God reward you for your caring ways. The family is being assisted by MYERS-DURBORAW FUNERAL HOME in Taneytown. Memorial contributions may be made in Willie's name to the Taneytown Volunteer Fire Company, 39 E Baltimore St., Taneytown, MD 21787.
