Wilson Dutton Sr., 84, born May 19, 1936, from Hornbeak transitioned home to be with the Lord Jan. 9, 2021.
He was welcomed home by his parents; his wife of 65 years, Jeanne Dutton; his brother, Randall; and his granddaughter, Christina.
He now awaits his siblings, Jack and Phyllis Dutton, Richard and Betty Dutton, Clarence and Debbie Dutton, Brenda and Ellis Boilles and Marilynn Dutton; his children, Roger and Diann Dutton, Wilson Jr. and Susie Dutton, Samantha and Mike Simmons, Jeanne K. and Donald Goodman, Valorine and Dempsey Eddy, Lola and Rodney Goodman; his 15 grandchildren; 29 great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren.
There will be a Celebration of Life ceremony Saturday at Living Word Church, 292 West Main St. in Hornbeak, at 10 a.m. We will share memories and food.
The family kindly asks for no cut flowers, but would, however, like any climbing rose bushes to be planted this spring to decorate the memorial to celebrate their parents’ reunion in Heaven, along with any other gifts. He will be greatly missed, but stand in faith we will one day be reunited at the Gates of Heaven.
