William Christopher Wilson went to be with our Lord on Monday, October 14th at 76 years old. Bill lived in Mt. Lebanon, PA for 60 years, prior to moving to The Villages in 2007. His generous, affectionate, spontaneous love manifested itself as a high school teacher at Brashear for 30 years. He served others as a Eucharistic minister, as a clown, as a builder of model railroads, and as an encouragement to friends and relatives. He received a Masters from Duquesne in counseling and guidance. As an avid adventurer, he visited four continents, kayaked, deep sea fished, and wrote a book titled, “Secrets of Success” to aid high schoolers in life understanding. His first wife, Jean Mangan, and his brother, George Wilson, preceded him in death. His wife, Sheila O’Brien, survives him. He leaves behind his sisters: Gloria Geisler and Mary Helen Beck, and his brothers: Mike, Jerry, and Leo Wilson, as well as numerous beloved nieces and nephews.
