Wayne Dale Wilson

Died Feb. 23, 2020


Wayne D. Wilson, of Sterling, Michigan passed away February 23, 2020. He was born on September 30, 1968 in Bay City, Michigan. Wayne-O was a loving husband of Sheila Wilson, and lives on through his children; Mariah Wilson, Ashleigh Wilson (Luke Waldie), Cole Wilson (Tiara Mervyn) and Lauren Wilson. Wayne was also an honorable son to Sharon and Gordon Wilson of Bay City, Michigan. He grew up with his siblings, Kent Wilson who preceded him in death on August 5, 2019, Rodney Wilson (Ann Class), and Jodi and Thomas Haley.

Wayne was a graduate of John Glenn High School and from there he went onto serve in the United States Marine Corps from 1987-1991. He’s been known for his outrageous stories and hilarious jokes funny to not only himself but everyone around him. He would give you the shirt off of his back even if it was his only one. Wayne was always found outside either on his porch or in one of his many trucks. He loved family, God, country and corps in that order. He would gladly elaborate if you showed any interest in any of those four. Wayne’s many hobbies included attending the Sterling Sucker tournament with his family, grilling up anything that he could find and getting into all sorts of trouble in the neighborhood. He was definitely one of the most interesting dads out there. His children would classify him as one of the “cool” dads. Whether we fish at the Omer flats, or ride down Melita, Wayne-O will be dearly missed and we will live through his memories.

Funeral Mass will take place Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 2 p.m. from Prince of Peace-St. Anne’s Campus in Linwood, Michigan, with cremation to follow. Wayne’s visitation will take place Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at Lee-Ramsay STANDISH-CHAPEL from 2-8 p.m. On Thursday, Wayne will lie in state at the church from 1:00 p.m. until the time of service. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider Wayne’s family.
