Entered into life June 25, 1930; entered into rest March 3, 2014.
Known to most of his family and friends as "Bogue" Wilson, he was one of seven children born to Myrtle Shepherd Wilson and Walter C. Wilson of Sanger, Texas. At the age of six, his family moved to Denton where he attended public schools and established many lifelong friends. In 1953 he accepted a position with General Motors in the parts division and retired after 30 years of dedicated service. Following his retirement from GM, "Bogue" graduated from Lindsey Cooper Refrigeration School in Irving, and founded Wilson Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., in Denton, TX. Over the next 30 years, he developed his business into a respected local HVAC company known to operate with honesty and integrity.
"Bogue" was dedicated to his family, friends, and the success of his business. He could always find time to tend to a family need or to help a friend. He was a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, NASCAR racing, and Texas Longhorn sports. He was also a supporter of his granddaughters' local youth sports teams. His greatest passion away from work was camping and traveling. In addition, he enjoyed his 1957 Chevy.
He will be missed by his loving wife Doretha Wilson, daughters' Karen Wilson and Kelly Quintanar, granddaughters' Sara and Madeline Quintanar, great granddaughter Olivia Reese Silva, son-in-law Art Quintanar, and a sister Georgia Robertson, all of Denton. He also leaves behind many loving nieces, nephews and loyal friends.
