Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers. They are a great source of strength and comfort that words cannot describe.
Not only did I grow up with "B.B", but in the late 1970s- early 1980s we shared a house together. He was, is, and will always be a great man and loving brother in my heart and spirit. Miss you bunches, bro. Love you. George "Billy" Wilson Jr.

BB was a kind man, an inspired listener, an open mind and sympathetic heart. We loved to play guitar together, or just sit by the river and watch it flow. I regret losing touch with him over the years, but am happy I got to see and talk with him this summer.

He was a friend of mine.

Bob was a fine friend and a member of Ramapo Fault String Band. He played bass and guitar with us. I'll never forget some of his jokes, and he could make the sound of an elephant like no one else! (I love my elephant, my elephant loves me...). We all remember him well, and will miss him.

I used to spend summers up at the Bullowa Adirondack Scout Reservation with my father and mother, Don and Evelyn Holmes. Dad was a Commissioner. We knew "Biggie & Mrs. Biggie" and Bobby, Tommy & Duncan in the early 1970's. No wonder you call him a "great man" - he came from a great family! Many fun times we all had back then. I still keep in touch with a staff member named John Heller. I have lived in Stony Point for 27 years and didn't know the Wilson family members were nearby! Our deepest sympathies to all of you.

Loved all of our times in the finished basement of Mr & Mrs Big, as they fondly called their parents.
