Mike Wilson

In Memoriam 1955 – 2021

Oh the stories he would tell…. Mike Wilson was a man of deep passions, absolute commitment, and unique transparency.

He loved life, which for him included fierce loyalty to his family, his friends, his dogs, his Catholic upbringing and faith, and his profession. He balanced them all with a boundless energy.

To know Mike Wilson was to know Mike Wilson stories, which always involved a self-effacing humor that exposed a vulnerability.  His love of storytelling and good humor prodded him to roll past the barriers and buzzers most of us build and install to protect ourselves from the judgments of others.  Mike loved to tell stories about himself.
