Donald Wilson Ii.

September 25, 1945 — June 16, 2021

Donald L. Wilson II of Quinton VA, a devoted husband, father, and follower of Christ, passed away at his home on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, at the age of 75. Born on September 25, 1945, in Richmond, VA. Don is survived by Cheryl White Wilson, his loving wife of 57 years, his three sons; Michael Wilson, Timothy Wilson, and Chris Wilson and his wife Kimberly Ayres Wilson, three grandchildren; Bailey Wilson, Olivia Wilson, and Steven Wilson, his sister Kathy Richards, brother Doug Wilson, half-sisters Katy Wilson Carter, Toni Wilson Messinger, and Stephanie Wilson Benedictson, his beloved dog Bella, and several nieces, nephews, and friends.

Faith played a large role in Don’s life. He began this journey 50 years ago at Orcutt Baptist Church in Newport News, VA. In 1979, upon moving his family to the tri-city area, he began worshiping at Woodlawn Baptist Church in Hopewell, VA. In 1990, with his friend and pastor, Jim Hallcom, Don became a founding member and ordained elder of New Jerusalem Fellowship church in Prince George, VA. It was here that he found immense delight in teaching his adult Sunday school classes. Also during that time, Don served for several years as both Chairman of Board and President of Super Kids Ministries—a nonprofit organization specializing in the needs of intellectually disabled adults. Until the time of his passing, he continued his service to the Lord at Spirit Life Worship Center.

After 33 years of service with the Department of Defense, Don retired from the Software Engineering Center at Fort Lee, Virginia in 1999. While at Fort Lee he managed the software development and implementation of several Army Logistics applications and served as the Deputy to the Commander for seven years. Upon retirement, Don continued working with his family owned construction and real estate business. All the while, following his passion for restoring, riding, and showcasing classic cars. Though perhaps his greatest joy in life was spending time with his grandchildren at the family lake house on Smith Mountain Lake.

A memorial service will be held 3:00 Saturday, June 26, 2021 at Spirit Life Worship Center 4605 Romans Road Prince George, VA 23875.  The family will receive friends Friday June 25, 2021 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Colonial Heights Chapel of E.
