John P. Wilson Obituary
John Paul Wilson was born in Lucien, Mississippi. He worked at a shipyard as a welder until entering the US Navy at the age of 17 to serve as a gunner aboard the USS Thomason. He was quickly promoted to Head Baker when the captain found out he could cook.

He worked for Helms Bakery after the war for about 10 years, then applied to DWP. He retired as a Water Trouble Inspector at the age of 62.

His interests were fishing, woodwork, gardening, camping and trips in his motorhome.

His wife, Evelyn passed in 1977. He is survived by three daughters, six grandchildren, nine great grands, and one great-great grand child.

He was a wonderful, kindhearted man who is deeply missed.
