Hollywood, Florida: Edward F. (Eddie) Wilson passed away Friday, July 8, 2022 in Hollywood, Florida where he called home since 1995. There he worked for 19 years at Pier 66 where he often connected with family and friends. He enjoyed the year-round summer life and became good friends with Dan Sawtell who helped him for many years, especially during COVID. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elvin and Dorothy (Reed) Wilson; his stepson, Dewitt Conover; his sister and brother-in-law, Leatrice and H. Kenneth Wilkie; his brother, Arnold Wilson; his nephew, Gary (Susan) Wilkie and his great niece, Ashton Eva Wilkie.

Ed loved life and lived it to the fullest. By 1952, before he was drafted in the Army, he had visited Florida and California, worked for RD Wood and Roebling Steel, played football for Rider College and Holy Name. Edward served his Country from 1952-1954 in the US Army where he was a member of the 82nd Airborne Division from Fort Bragg, N.C. and in the Army Reserves until 1960.
