Wilson was the owner and operator of the Smith Brothers Paving Company. He took great pride in providing the best service to his customers. When not working, you could find him riding his gator, tending the garden or finding a good auction somewhere. He always had a kind, humble way about him and enjoyed giving the bountiful blessings of his garden away to anyone he met. He loved the Lord and his family with his whole heart. Folks will always remember his legacy of love, his love of singing and his dry humor that kept everyone laughing.
