Obituary for Eric Wilson

Wilson, Eric Andrew-

Eric enjoyed a perfect day in Saint Lucia surrounded by his family on April 10, 2019. He left us suddenly that day, but his love, loyalty and passions remain. Eric and Joan (Lennox) celebrated over 35 years of marriage and were blessed with their children Andrew (Vanessa) and Heather (Matthew) and family pet Lucy.

He was a devoted brother of Dave (Marion), Marjorie (Greg), Donnie (Donna), and Carolyn (Gary). Eric was predeceased by his brother Dick (Laurie) (1993) and nephew John (2010). He was a loving uncle to his many nieces, nephews, and their children.

Eric delighted in the time spent with family and friends. He passionately enjoyed biking, soccer, hockey, music, literature, and politics. He was happiest when spending time in rural Ontario, having grown up on a family farm near Woodstock. Eric graduated from the University of Guelph. His love and concern for the environment was reflected in his fulfilling career as a Soil Scientist and his involvement in tree planting initiatives. Eric was a loyal friend, neighbour, teammate, coach, and community volunteer.

Friends will be received at Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home, Hart Chapel, 1099 Gordon St, Guelph, on Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 1-4pm. A funeral service will be held for Eric at Three Willows United Church, 577 Willow Rd, Guelph on Monday, April 29, 2019 at 1 p.m. A private interment will take place at Huntingford Cemetery at a later date.
