Obituary

Aaron Timothy Wilson was born on February 23, 1956 to Marvin Sylvester Miller and Mary Lee Wilson in Norfolk, VA. He attended Lake Taylor High School in VA where he played football as a running back, sang in the choir, ran cross country track, and had many adventures along the way. He worked at Pepsi-Cola, Budweiser Beer, and Giant Open Air Market.

 In his 20’s he moved to Vallejo, CA where he eventually met his wife Anita driving the church bus for New Hope Chapel COGIC. He married in 1982. Aaron attended The Living Gospel Church Outreach under his first Pastor at the time, D.L. Jones. He received the Holy Ghost April 1999 in Dallas, TX. He served throughout the years in Houma, LA, Monroe, LA, Longview, TX and Gilmer, TX by picking up families in the church van (or his van), locking up and cleaning the church, ushering, working in the kitchen, and his favorite – singing in the choir.

Aaron went by many titles: Brother, Uncle, Dad, Daddy, Fat Neck or Neck, Big Grip, Mr. Wilson, Big Wilson, Pops, Old Man, Bro. Wilson and more. He had a big heart for people; he was definitely a people person. He would help anyone in need, especially single mothers. Aaron was a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan, win or lose. He enjoyed eating and going out to eat whether it was something he was suppose to have or not. He loved to sing old school music and gospel from his era and beyond. Aaron enjoyed being around people and making them laugh; he also joked A LOT! He was a character, “a chip off the old block” as he would say. Aaron loved his brothers, sisters, nieces (who were all his favorite), nephews and family. He loved his children, Victor and Veronica, most of all and made sure the world knew it too.

 Aaron is preceded in death by his Father: Marvin Sylvester Miller and Mother: Mary Lee Wilson. He is survived by his son Victor Wilson and daughter Veronica Wilson; Brothers: Beaufus Miller, Thomas (Lolita) Wilson, Cleveland Wilson, and Victor Wilson; Sisters: Glenda Wilson, Rosalind Wilson, Sonja Wilson, Jean Wilson, Debra (Chris) Reid, and Pamela Trotter; a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
