Dear Wilson Family:
It is with sadness to learn that a spirit larger then life itself is no longer with us. Loyal's love of life, his gregarious personality, his abiding commitment to family and friends and his strong work ethic reflected a truly unique spirit. Anyone that had the honor of knowing Loyal was truly blessed from the experience. I know my family and I will never forget such a wonderful person.
With condolences at your loss:
