John Wilson:  Sept. 04, 1929 - Sept. 17, 2018
Wilson, Jr., John,  Sept. 04, 1929 - Sept. 17, 2018
 
In case you missed Clark's email, John Wilson, Jr. (89) of Osprey, FL, formally of Pasadena, MD, passed away on September 17, 2018. He was a graduate of Glen Burnie High School and served 14 years in the 104th Fighter Squadron of the Air National Guard. 
 
John was a 50-Year Kiwanis Legion of Honor member and a Hixson Fellow.  He was twice president of the South Sarasota Kiwanis Club and president in 1972 of the Kiwanis Club of Mountain Road in Pasadena, MD.  As many of you know, he seldom missed one of our Wednesday luncheon meetings, and liked to do the ticket sales at our pancake breakfasts.  He had a wonderful smile and was devoted to Kiwanis.  He will be missed.
 
He is survived by his beloved wife of 65 years, Diana; daughters, Jo-Ann Wilson, Barbara Kufel, 7 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. Memorial donations may be made to the Special Olympics of Maryland.
 
Cards and notes can be sent to Diana at 528 Habitat Blvd, Osprey FL 34229,
