Thomas Dwight Wilson Sr., 65, of Muskogee, OK passed away May 10th, 2020, 7:30 a.m. at Broadway Manor Nursing Home during a brief stay. His devoted wife Naomi was by his side.
Dwight was born November 18, 1954 to Dorothy Howell and David Wilson in Tullahassee Oklahoma. He was reared by his loving grandparent’s Tommy and Bernice Howell who he affectionately called Daddy and Momma. They preceded him in death.
He attended Carter G. Woodson Elementary and High Schools where he graduated in 1972. He enrolled in a vocational program and earned his certification as an Auto Mechanic. Dwight loved working on cars and serviced the community for 40 years. He also work for Green Country Casting as a Pipe Inspector.
On October 10th, 1981, Dwight united in holy matrimony with his sweetheart Naomi Wilson and to this union they were blessed with seven children.
Dwight had an inviting personality that made people love to be around him. He loved to fish and he enjoyed the beauty of nature. He enjoyed the pleasure of visits from his family and friend’s during his incapacitation for 12 years. Because of his wife’s witness and spiritual guidance Dwight learned the good news about our heavenly father Jehovah, the unmerited gift of salvation, and his kingdom that we believe is soon to come. Dwight’s confidence in his belief and blessed hope inspired him to share with joy how life will be after the resurrection of the dead: A New Earth With A New System Governed By Jesus Christ Our Lord, A New Body, And A Brand-New Life.
Dwight leaves to cherish his memory his wife of thirty-nine years Naomi Wilson of the home; four sons, Thomas Dwight Wilson Jr. (Mariah), Thyrone Darnell Wilson (Diedra), David Wallace Jr., and Tommy Wallace. He had an infant son Jeremy Dale Wilson who preceded him in death; two daughters, Nicole A. Moore (Brian), and Barbara Wallace. He has seventeen grandsons, five grand daughters’, five great- great grandsons’, and five great- great granddaughters; one sister Lanita Parker; two sister’s in-laws Geraldine Grayson, and Lavern Jones; two brother’s in-laws Rickey Scott (Katlynn), Otis Scott S. (Christein) and a host of niece’s, nephew’s, extended family and friends.
The family of Thomas Dwight Wilson Sr. would like to take this time to express our gratitude for all acts of kindness during this transition. The value of family, and friends cannot be expressed to its fullest measure during our bereavement. A special thank you to our spiritual family at The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses!
