Ronald J. "Ron" Wilson, age 78, of Elwood, IN passed away on Friday, November 11, 2022, at Miller's Merry Manor in Tipton, IN following an extended illness. He was born in Noblesville, IN on July 30, 1944, to the late Garland and Lillian (Douglas) Wilson. On Feb. 2, 1968, he married Sharon (Poynter) Wilson, and they shared 31 years of marriage together before her passing on Dec. 12, 2020. Ron graduated from Wendell L. Willkie High School with the class of 1962, and he proudly served our country in the US Army. Although Ron was a retired auto mechanic, his passion for cars never felt like a job, but more like a hobby because he was known for being able to fix anything with motor.
Ron is survived by his loving brother David (Vickie) Wilson of Elwood; and several nieces and nephews. Along with his parents and wife, Ron was preceded in death by a sister, Margaret Myers.
Ron's wishes were for cremation without services, and to be laid to rest next to his wife in the K of P and IOOF Cemetery in Frankton.
Dunnichay Funeral Home is honored to care for Ron and the Wilson family. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions are suggested to the Elwood VFW or Elwood American Legion.
