Richard E. Wilson Obituary
Richard Eli Dick Wilson of Dennis, passed away peacefully on Sunday, September 29, 2019 in Leominster, MA. Born on April 27 1929 in Concord, MA he was the son of the late Clarence Eli Wilson and Martha (Calvert) Wilson. After graduating from Belmont Hill School, he went on to earn a bachelors degree in Philosophy from Haverford College and a masters degree in Business Administration from Boston University. In June of 1955 he married Jane Adams, also of Concord. After adopting two children, they remained in Concord for many years, spending as much time as possible during the summers on Cape Cod. Upon retiring from the Boston VA Hospital as a computer systems analyst, he and Jane moved to Dennis. Richard gave much of his time volunteering for various charities and organizations over the years while residing in both Concord and Dennis. He was extremely generous of his time, preferring to serve his community quietly without recognition or praise. His kind, generous spirit, optimism and pleasant personality will be forever cherished by those who knew and loved him. He is survived by his wife, Jane (Adams) Wilson, daughter, Kathryn Calvert Wilson, son, Richard Adams Wilson; five grandchildren, Julia Wirtz, Abigail Wirtz, Ailish Wilson, Aengus Wilson, and Neve Wilson and a host of nieces and nephews.
