George "Willy" William Wilson

George William “Willy” Wilson, 54, of French Lick, Indiana entered into eternal rest on October 5th, 2019.


He was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on September 21st, 1965 to Earl and Marilyn (Myers) Wilson.


Willy married Anita Thompson on April 18th, 1987 and she survives.


He was preceded in death by his parents.


Willy was a 1984 graduate of Springs Valley High School and received a business degree from Vincennes University.


He was employed by Jay Hill Trucking as a truck broker.


Willy attended Victory Baptist Church where his Christian faith was evident in every facet of his life.  One of his greatest joys in life was sharing his love of the Lord with everyone he met.  Family was second only to faith in Willy’s life.  Sharing experiences together with his family was not just an option, it was a necessity.


He loved sports and coached both sons when they played, was a loyal fan of the University of Kentucky Wildcats, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Indiana Pacers.  Willy enjoyed fishing and playing golf with his buddy Kevin Morgan.


Willy also had a great joy in gardening and caring for his fruit trees and berries and sharing the fruits of his labor. 


He is survived by:

I am so sorry to have heard about your loss of a dear loved one. To have known Willy by phone calls and emails almost on a daily basis and never had meant him in person, I felt we made a good friendship in business and maybe even outside of work. We laughed and even had few serious conversations he knew how to speak professional and how to be a caring heart. He loved our U of K Wildcats and of course we had to laugh about him being the Cats Fan and with the boys following him.
Always had positive thoughts and a good heart to spread the word without hesitation. He was a child of God and a servant.
My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family at this time of sorrow.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Willy in person. But, from work related conversations over the phone, I could tell he was a fun one! I will miss the ribbing he would give me about being a Browns Fan! Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends. Willy, you will be missed by many!

So sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Willy, working in the transportation industry we talked or emailed each other often.
Even though we never met I could tell he had a great soul and a loving family man. I will miss seeing his emails that he wouldstart out by saying "Hey tattoo lady" .. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family..

I was so truly saddened to hear the news. Like many others here have shared - I've worked with Willy regularly for so many years - that even though I never had the chance to meet him in person - I feel like I could have called him friend. He was without a doubt one of the best people I've ever had the opportunity to work with. He was kind and honest and one of those people who make what you do worth while. He will be truly missed among our industry. But, most importantly, my heart goes out to your family and friends; you will be in my prayers during this most difficult time.
