Dennis Keith Wilson

April 16, 1940 -

June 15, 2014

Dennis was born in Chattanooga, TN the only child of James & Bettye Wilson. He accepted Jesus on Mother's Day 1954 and entered glory on Father's Day 2014. He grew up in Rossville, Ga and moved to Pensacola in 1960. He was a tireless and dedicated employee of Monsanto/AES/Solutia for over 45 years. Upon his retirement from the plant, he returned to "work" as a labor of love for his church, Olive Baptist serving in various capacities including construction supervisor for the remodel of the Charis houses & Passmore Hall

and concluding as Director of Community Outreach.

He was preceded in death by his parents, aunts Janice Williams and Joyce Watts, uncle Donald Yankey, granny Lula Mae Yankey and grandsons Preston Hunter & Brian Heath Wilson and Asher Graham Currey.

Dennis leaves behind his "tribe":

wife Nancy; children: Brian (Glenda) Wilson, Beth (David) Dunlap, Kevin (Christine) Wilson, Rachael (Steve) Croley, Leah (Dick) Currey, Jill (Justin) Manny, spiritually adopted Sandi (Clinton) Guice, and 17 grandchildren.

Big "D" was a larger than life bondservant of Christ who never failed to provide an encouraging word or hesitate to pray on someone's behalf. He boldly proclaimed the Gospel from post-communist Romania to the slums of Brazil to the homeless camps of Pensacola. He touched countless souls with his teaching of the Word, seeking questions and unparalleled humor. He was known as an unashamed man of faith, family and friends. He leaves behind an extraordinary legacy for generations to come.

Pallbearers will be his sons and sons-in-law. Flowers will be accepted as will donations to Olive Ministry Village and Covenant Hospice, Milton. Funeral services provided by Faith Chapel, North. Visitation will be Thursday 6-8 p.m. at Olive Baptist, service Friday at 11 a.m. at Olive Baptist and graveside following at Magnolia Cemetery, Evergreen, Al.
