He loved camping and, for 20 years, maintained a seasonal campsite at the Lone Oak Campground of East Canaan.

Together with his wife, Karen, they enjoyed many memorable cruises, Caribbean trips and visits to Central and South America. They celebrated their love for each other and for the Caribbean by getting married in Jamaica in 2000. Mr. Wilson played softball in area leagues and was a lifelong fan of Major League Baseball, especially the rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox.

In addition to his wife of 20 years, he is survived by a brother, Drew Wilson and his wife, Bonnie, of Texas; and a dear sister-in-law, Linda Michel of Naugatuck; as well as many cousins and friends.
