Obituary for Bobby Stephen Wilson

Bobby Stephen Wilson passed away Sunday, October 15, 2017. The family will receive guests at 10:00 a.m., Friday, October 20, at Richfield Christian Church. Services will follow at 11:00 a.m., with Rev. Alec Ylitalo and Chaplain Sarah Miller officiating. Burial will follow at Oakwood Cemetery.

Bob was born in Elajay, Georgia, and lived in Akron, Ohio. He relocated to Waco in 1983 with his job. He met and married Barbara Castillo in 1984. Bob worked for General Tire for 18 years, two of which he traveled internationally as a consultant to India, Iran and Venezuela. When General Tire closed, he worked for Packless Industries, in the plant and as a private pilot. He left there and went to work for M&M Mars, where he retired when he could no longer work because of his Parkinson Disease.

Bob was in the Air Force from 1959 to 1963. He was a pilot and a flight instructor. Bob was also in the Civil Air Patrol and was president of the Cobra Car Club. When the club went on road trips, he had to drive at the back because he didn’t have a Cobra. He only had a black Corvette.

He was preceded in death by his father, Henry S. Wilson; mother, Imogene McArthur; and stepfather, Creston McArthur.

Survivors are his wife, Barbara, and his puppy, Hannah. He is also survived by his sons, Jon and Gary Wilson, and granddaughter, Alex Wilson, of Ohio; stepchildren, David Scott, Denise Castilleja and husband, Julian, and Donna McCrory; and step grandchildren, Nick Engelbrecht and wife, Ana; and twins, Bianca and Savannah Castilleja.

Pallbearers are David Scott, Nick Engelbrecht, Julian Castilleja, Andy Pedigo, James Yates and Pete Moffatt. Honorary Pallbearers are Helen Bunting, in memory of Bob’s faithful friend, Max Bunting, and Ida McBride, in memory of Mickey McBride.

Special thanks to Southern Care Hospice for their loving care. They are very special and like family. Thanks to the caregivers at Senior Care of Hewitt.
