|Bill (Billy) Gene Wilson, 83, of Nipomo, California, peacefully left this earth to be present |
with the Lord Jesus on December 27, 2015. Bill was born in De Kalb, Mississippi, on March 7,
1932. He was raised by his grandparents, Albert Brown and Essie May McLelland, in the small town
of Blackwater, Mississippi. He later joined his mother and stepfather, Opal and Ezra Addy, in
Memphis, Tennessee, where he attended Tech High School. After graduating from Tech High School in
1953, Bill joined the U.S. Air Force and served during the Korean War. He earned the rank of
master sergeant and went on to travel serving in the States and abroad in Azores, Portugal and
Madrid, Spain, concluding 20 years of military service at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.
Bill retired from the service on June 30, 1973, and settled his family in Nipomo, California.
He immediately returned to the workforce as an Operating Room Technician at Valley Community
Hospital in Santa Maria, California, and retired in September of 1999. Bill met his wife, Pamela
Catherine Gavlak, while they were both working at Marian Hospital in 1961. It was love at first
sight and they married on December 15, 1962. Bill and Pam had four children together and built
their dream home in Nipomo. He was a devoted family man and a happy homebody. Bill was the
consummate southern gentleman and preferred the simple things in life. He enjoyed tending to his
two-acre property, gardening, sipping iced tea, playing with his Chesapeake Bay Retriever,
“Honker,” listening to country music, splitting logs, and resting by his wood-burning stove
every evening. He was a man of deep faith and rarely missed a Sunday worship service. He will be
greatly missed for his profound wisdom, incredible capacity for love, and sweet sense of humor.
Bill is survived by his wife of 53 years, Pamela Catherine Wilson. He is also survived by his
son, Anthony Todd Wilson; daughter, Catherine Ann Wilson; daughter, Rebecca Marie Weber and
son-in-law, Dale William Weber; daughter, Ann Marie Looysen and son-in-law, Christopher Looysen;
