Jack Wade Wilson

Augusta, Ga. – Jack Wade Wilson, 87, loving husband of Elizabeth Dianne Wilson, passed away peacefully at home on November 1, 2022, following a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
Jack was born in the old University Hospital in Augusta, Ga on March 10, 1935, to Dan Frank Wilson, Sr. and Blanche Evelyn Wade Wilson.
He grew up in Waynesboro, Ga. and attended Waynesboro High School where he played football, basketball, baseball and played in the band. He was active in the National Guard in 1955 and attended Basic Radar School in El Paso, Texas. He graduated from Southern Technical College in 1959 with a degree in Electronic Technology and went to work for the Federal Aviation Administration until his retirement following 35 years of service.
A devout Christian, Jack loved being a member of Trinity-on-the-Hill United Methodist Church where he taught Sunday School and Disciple Bible Study. He served on the Administrative Board and as President of Methodist Men and was a faithful member of the Damren Sunday School Class. He also served for years at the Soup Kitchen and worked building houses for Habitat for Humanity with fellow church members.
Jack traveled extensively and loved golf, playing regularly with his senior group at Forest Hills Golf Club. Jack was also an avid Georgia Bulldog fan and enjoyed watching the games with his football group, where he could be heard shouting “Touchdown Georgia!” by nearby neighbors.
Jack also enjoyed spending time with his large, blended family and especially enjoyed his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
