Donald Wilson, 87, passed away peacefully Monday, Aug. 10, 2020. He was born in Walters, Oklahoma, to Mr. Joe and Edith Swanson Wilson on June 17, 1933.

Donald married the love of his life, Wanda Louis Johnson, on June 8, 1957, in Crane, Texas.

He was the founder and owner of Multiple Cable Systems in Midlothian, Texas, for 30 years.

The Wilsons called Midlothian home for the last 20 years.

He is preceded in death by his parents; and his loving wife of 63 years, Wanda Louis Johnson Wilson.

He is survived by five sons, David and Kathy Crispin of New Mexico, Gary and Diana Crispin of Austin, Texas, Stephen and Valerie Wilson of Ennis, Texas, Greg and Deanna Wilson of Forney, Texas, and Jeff and Carri Wilson of Midlothian, Texas; 12 grandchildren, Justin Crispin, Derek Wilson, Amy Wilson, Jennifer Martinson, Stephanie Wilson, Andrew Wilson, Tiffany Hughes, Chelsea Raggio, Tim White, Hali Rodgers, Taylor White and Jason Crispin; and 11 great-grandchildren.

"Paw-paw" suffered the last three years of his life with dementia, but his "spirit man" was very much alive and well. He transitioned from this life on earth to his Eternal Home. "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord." II Corinthians 5:8

He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
