Mitchell Wilson a man of integrity! No words can fill the void he leaves behind. So blessed to have known him and called him friend. Rest in Peace Boss

Tammy and I will miss Mitchell very much! Being raised by his mother, I learned a lot from him about hard work, responsibility and life in general. Mitchell was like a father to me. He gave me my first real job. He was so very good to me and later to my wife to. He told her that she was the best thing that has ever happen to me, and he was so right! I will never forget the love and kindness that he has shown to me and later my wife to include the love his dear wife Dot showed us to. Again we are so very sorry to hear of his passing away. He will be missed. (Acts 24:15 & John 5:25). ❤️ James and Tammy Rorrer

Mitchell was a great man. I played on a baseball team Wilson Construction sponsored when I was 12 years old. Now at age 59 I work as a subcontractor for Mitchell as his Insulation Company. He always had kind words to say and was a loyal builder. He helped many while on this earth. Nothing but admiration and respect for him. Go rest with the angels Mitchell. Prayers for the family.

Dot and Mitchell Wilson and Mark were a big part of my life growing up. I have fond memories of our families spending tine together. As a young adult I came to know Mitchell as a mentor and a friend. He was a man of faith, generosity and integrity who loved his family and his community. He was also a lot of fun. My condolences go out to Mark and Marcus and their families. I know you will miss him every day.

So very fortunate to have worked with Mr. Wilson at the golf course for about two years. He was a very honest and smart businessman. Condolences to the family, Mark and Marcus. You both have a lot to be proud of and a wonderful legacy to care for. Now if I can just find someone going to Florida during the winter to bring back those wonderful tomatoes...
