Patrick Percival Wilson was born on Feb 3, 1965 to Mr. Ralph Wilson and Imogene Wilson. He was the 7th of 9 children. A handsome baby boy. He was sweet and could win you over with his smile. As he grew, he was mischievous. He and his older brother became inseparable. Aunt and papa had their hands full. My father yelled at both of them together. They were partners in crime. When Rudy split his tongue by a wheelbarrow Percy cried until he got home from the hospital. The years only bought them closer together. Mommy was able to bring them here in 1975. He attended elementary school P.S 335, J.H.S 210, H.S Redirection. He started working at the age of 13; bagging groceries for the Jewish man around the corner from our house. Percy and his boss got along pretty well that they became friends. He had such a good rapport with his customers that they would invite him in for dinner. He was also invited to celebrate the feast days with them. Mommy and I would laugh when we heard them going through the streets singing and laughing, and drinking on feast of Tabernacles. Percy became a part of their community. After high school, he enrolled in the navy. While there he took up engineering. He was deployed in the Persian Gulf War. Percy served this country for 7 Yrs, while there he developed Kidney disease. He was given an honorable discharge, he didn’t let that stop him because he became an excellent truck driver for 13 yrs then became an entrepreneur, Due to his illness he had to stop; but he still had a determined attitude about life. He was well loved by his family and friends. He and his nephews Robert and Kevin were very close. He and Robert went everywhere together. Through it all Percy loved family and surely family loved him. He will be greatly missed. He made a definite impact on everyone he came in contact with. There was always excitement when Percy came to town. Farewell my beloved brother. He leaves behind to mourn 1 brother, 1 sister, 4 nephews, 1 niece, 1 Aunt, Several uncles, and a host of cousins and friends.
