Edward “Eddie” Clyde Wilson, 68, of Pearland, TX passed away on Wednesday, September 13, 2017. He was born February 26, 1949 to Clyde W. Wilson and Virginia A. Riedle Wilson in Houston, TX.
He is survived by his loving wife Janice Crenshaw Wilson; children, Mark Wilson and his wife Tiffany, Thomas Wilson and his wife Amanda and Shirley Shiflet and her husband Joey; bonus children, John Gunnin and his wife Jennifer, Jason Gunnin and his wife Ashley and Amy Walker and her husband Scott; 1 sister; 3 brothers; grandchildren, Preston and Colton Wilson, Xander and Xaria Wilson, Cullen Ramirez, Caitlin and Emma Gunnin, Aubrey and Emery Gunnin and Aaron and Evan Walker; and many other relatives and cherished friends.
Eddie was a great father and loving Grampy. He wore many hats throughout his life: he was a steel mill worker, a truck driver, a Randall’s employee for over 25 years and a professional shopper. He loved everyone and never met a stranger. He was an avid Coca-Cola collector and enjoyed cooking, fishing, drawing, writing poetry, and adventure. Above all else he loved his family (but they still weren’t allowed in the kitchen).
