Grandchildren Caleb, Cali, Alexis and Emma, and another on the way! Parents Charles and Patricia Wilson, sisters Annette and Rosey Posy. David was a kind, thoughtful, special person, he will always be remembered by the conversations he would strike up with strangers. Dad loved to learn about other peoples life stories. He was the most loving husband, father, father-in-law, brother and son you could ever wish for. Dad was known for his love of sailing, building, fixing and singing and flying. Buzzing Pasley in Canada with his Beech 18 aircraft, flying his kids to concerts and exploring the world with his family and their friends. He was creating memories for everyone who joined in. Davids quick wit, sense of humor and zest for life on the edge was really the best story of all! He will be sadly missed by all who was touched by him. RIP, Mr. Wilson.
