    He was a graduate of Nelsonville-York High School and devoted husband and father. He worked for Columbus and Southern Power, later American Electric Power for almost forty years. He knew the exact time, thirty nine years, four months and so many days. He finished out his career at the Conesville plant after the one on Poston Rd. in Nelsonville closed.

    Wilbur was an Army veteran and served during the Korean War. He was a lifetime member of the American Legion and belonged to the Nelsonville Eagles, Elks, and VFW.

He was very active in his daughter's life, he played ball with her and took the family camping, fishing and on trips to amusement parks when she was young. The teenage years meant helping her learn to drive a moped, then motorcycle and then car. In later years, they enjoyed watching the Cincinnati Reds together and being outside with their dogs. A true animal lover, Wilbur fed all the birds and squirrels in the neighborhood and liked watching them. One thing everyone says about him was just how kind he was, such a good person and loved by many. He was always there for his family and friends, really a solid rock you could always count on.
