Robert Eugene Wilson, age 62, of Aurora, Missouri passed away unexpectedly at his home on Wednesday, March 27, 2024. He was born May 24, 1961, the son of Walton “Eugene” and Lola “Jane” (Devereaux) Wilson Smith.
Robert loved the outdoors. Fishing, hunting, cutting wood, and gardening all brought big smiles to his face. He was a hard worker and retired from Tysons after 34 years due to health issues. Robert looked forward to the annual Tyson fishing tournament with his nephew, Nathan, as his partner. They just fished the last one on Saturday. We will miss Roberts smile, sense of humor, and friendship.
Survivors include his wife, Clara Wilson; mother, Jane Smith; one son, Brandon Wilson of Fairview, MO; step-son, Alan Morgan of Aurora, MO; bonus son, Alexander Peterson of Springfield, MO; one daughter, Rebecca Wilson of Aurora, MO; two brothers, Ronald Wilson and wife, Cindy of Aurora, MO and Steven Smith and wife, Kristie of Joplin, MO; one sister, Deborah Gunn and husband, Carl of Aurora, MO; along with six grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
Robert was preceded in death by his father, Eugene Wilson; dad, Wayne Smith; and one grandchild.
A graveside service was held Friday, March 29, 2024, in Maple Park Cemetery in Aurora.
Arrangements were entrusted to the care of Peterson Funeral Chapel.
