He is also survived by two brothers, John (Brittany) Wilson of Penfield, and Trevor Wilson of DuBois, by two sisters, Jennifer (James) Chittester of Brockway and Laura Wilson of Pittsburgh, as well as by numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, John DeSalve and Lillian Munn DeSalve McMillen; his paternal grandfather, Harry Wilson; and by his step-grandparents, Anthony and Alvera "Molly" Marzella and Clay and Donna Kohler.
