William Ernest Wilson

William Ernest Wilson, age 73, of Water Valley, MS died peacefully Monday, February 24, 2020 at Yalobusha General Nursing Home. He was born July 2, 1946 in Charleston, MS to the late Ernest and Eura Mae (Hardy) Wilson. William had at one time worked as an under water welder in the shipping industry, and later retired as a diesel mechanic. He was a down to earth man who enjoyed fishing and hunting. It is said that the only thing William loved more than a good prank was telling stories.

Services will begin at 11:00 AM Friday February 28, 2020 in the Henry Chapel of Seven Oaks with Bro. Freddy Moorman officiating. Burial will be in Elam Cemetery in Coffeeville.
