Paul Eugene Wilson
-Paul Eugene Wilson, 71, died Thursday, November 24, 2022 at his home in Shelby, NC with his beloved dogs Baby Girl and Sasha by his side.
Paul was born June 24, 1951 in Gaston County, NC to the late Arthur Howard Wilson and Velonia Almond Wilson. Known by all who knew him as the kindest soul, Paul found the beauty in everyone and everything and cherished time with loved ones above all else. His love and gifts are seen in every piece of wood he collected, carved, sanded and shined for endless hours into works of art for those he loved. He was a memory keeper and master story teller and cherished the woods and land he called home. Paul was an avid reader and writer and composed incredible music which he taught us soothed the soul. He could create or fix anything anywhere and his wisdom and skill will carry on in the many treasures he bestowed on family and friends. One of the strongest men ever to live will carry on in all of us, our beloved man in the woods reminded us always that family is everything and a smile was the greatest gift of all.
Paul is survived by his son Jason Howard Wilson (Hope), granddaughters Hunter Anniston Wilson and Jaycie Morgan Wilson (Anthony Batte) and their children Amani and Becklen. He also leaves behind his beloved sister Linda Wilson Hill (Karl), their daughter Jennifer Hill Miles (Jeff) and their children Lucas and Ellie Kate, and daughter Katherine Hill Doyle (Liam) and their children Piper, Eden and Langley. He is survived by his sister-in-law Sue Wilson Moore and children Kenneth, Tina, Cindy and Johnny. He also leaves behind his nephew Scott Fitch.
He is preceded in death by his parents Arthur and Velonia, his sister Dorothy Wilson Fitch (Mike) and their sons Mike and Craig, his brothers Arthur “Bud” Howard Wilson, Jr, and Wayne Wilson.
Paul will be especially remembered by every walk through the beautiful woods, every walking stick he fashioned from the woods and gifted to so many, and from the memories he created and passed on.
