Don Ray (Donnie) Wilson was born July 10, 1947 in Memphis, TN, the son of the late Robert L. and Margaret O'Conner Wilson. Mr. Wilson departed this life on Sunday, May 26, 2024, in Michie, Tennessee at the age of 76 Years, 10 Months, 16 Days.

Don proudly served his country in the United States Marine Corps. He met Rhonda Hamilton on a blind date at church. They were united in marriage on February 28, 1970.

He loved to fish, watch TV, play video games, go square dancing, and go camping in Heber Springs, Arkansas, but most of all he loved spending time with his family, especially during the holidays. In 1992, Don was saved at Olive Hill Baptist Church.
