After a brief but courageous battle with cancer, Wilson with his wife Shelly by his side passed away peacefully on October 20th, 2021.

Left to cherish his memory, his wife and best friend Shelly, sons Wade (Sam), Warren (Paige). Brother Walter (Doreen), Sister Diane. Mother in-law Geri and father in-law Bill, sister in-laws Lori (Rick) and Lisa (Tim). Nephews Wallace (Brandi), Anson, great nephews Josh and Emmy; Nieces April, Kim (Brent), Hannah, great niece Shelby; many families and friends.

Wilson was predeceased by his parents Doug and Gail, brother Wayne, father in-law Phil and niece Lynn.

Wilson was born in Narcisse, MB, September 22nd 1960, where he lived until he moved to Winnipeg in 1980 for work. He met the love of his life Shelly in 1982, they were married in 1988. They moved to Balmoral MB, where they currently resided.

He started working for Bel Acres Golf and Country Club in 1987 in the maintenance dept., then as the Mechanic until May of 2021.

He took such pride in everything he did on daily basis at Bel Acres, which showed in his dedication and attention to detail. He enjoyed many golf games and BBQ’s and just spending time with the people he worked with, and members he knew.

Family was his top priority, he loved them with all his heart. The pride and joy and love for them could be seen in everything he would do for them and time spent with them. Teaching them how to hunt, trap, and how to love life and enjoy ever aspect. Wilson lived his life on the bases you have to “Work Hard to Play Hard” which he instilled this same trait in his boys. Shelly and him spent every day together enjoying all the things they loved to do. There was never a shortage of “I love you” or hugs daily. He was an amazing husband and father; this void can not be filled, but his memory will live on in their hearts and everything they do in life.

They would spend every spare moment at their cabin (The Farm) in Narcisse. With family and so many wonderful fiends, hunting, quadding and trapping and many evenings spent around a bonfire sharing stories, listening to music and drinks.

He had many lifelong friends and enjoyed spending time with each of them. They all held a special place in his heart. Willy always had a story to tell or a photo to share with you of the buck he seen or the Elk they harvested or what was in the traps when he would check them. Wilson had a huge heart, and if you needed help or a hug or someone to listen, he was there to for you.

As per Wilson’s wishes, there will be no funeral. A celebration of his life will be at “The Farm” at a later date.

If friends and family so desire a donation can be made in his honor to Stonewall General Hospital (Palliative Care), or a charity of your choice.

Heart felt thankyou to Dr. Graham, and the entire nursing staff at Stonewall Hospital for their kind ways and care and compassion shown to both Wilson and Shelly.

A limb has fallen from our family tree I hear a voice that whispers, “Grieve not for me” Continue my heritage, I am counting on you. Keep on smiling, the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all…how I was truly blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your lives, don’t stare at the wall. I miss you all dearly, think of me with a grin. Until the fine day were together again.
