Edward “Eddie” Clyde Wilson

In Loving Memory

Edward “Eddie” Clyde Wilson

2/26/1949 - 9/13/2017

Edward “Eddie” Clyde Wilson, 68, of Pearland, TX passed away on Wednesday, September 13, 2017.  He was born February 26, 1949 to Clyde W. Wilson and Virginia A. Riedle Wilson in Houston, TX.

He is survived by his loving wife Janice Crenshaw Wilson; children, Mark Wilson and his wife Tiffany, Thomas Wilson and his wife Amanda and Shirley Shiflet and her husband Joey; bonus children, John Gunnin and his wife Jennifer, Jason Gunnin and his wife Ashley and Amy Walker and her husband Scott; 1 sister; 3 brothers; grandchildren, Preston and Colton Wilson, Xander and Xaria Wilson, Cullen Ramirez, Caitlin and Emma Gunnin, Aubrey and Emery Gunnin and Aaron and Evan Walker; and many other relatives and cherished friends.

Eddie was a great father and loving Grampy. He wore many hats throughout his life: he was a steel mill worker, a truck driver, a Randall’s employee for over 25 years and a professional shopper. He loved everyone and never met a stranger. He was an avid Coca-Cola collector and enjoyed cooking, fishing, drawing, writing poetry, and adventure. Above all else he loved his family (but they still weren't allowed in the kitchen).

My Mother Terri Raney had the most special, kind hearted man in her life that she called her best friend that I absolutely ADORE. I love Edward so much we had this special bond that I'll cherish for the rest of my life. I remember as a little girl so excited to go to Randals to see the man I adored so much as a young girl. I always ran up to his for him to pick me up as he always did. I remember his breath always smelling like peppermint and as a child I thought he had this special thing about him for his breath to always smell like peppermint ( as I got older I found out he used to smoke so he ate peppermints to cover the smell) LOL. I'll miss getting tagged in silly things on Facebook and just having you in life. I love you more than words can explain❤️

The person who made Janice so happy had to be a great guy. That's mostly what I knew of Eddie until about two years ago when I finally made a trip to Pearland. Janice and I laughed a lot, shared stories from yesteryear, and calculated that we had not seen each other for maybe 30 years. Eddie sat fairly quietly, taking in the reunion of these two friends from long, long ago. He smiled a lot and made sure we didn't starve. I so enjoyed meeting Eddie, having the grand tour of his Coca-Cola memorabilia and the "W" collection, and sharing time with him and Janice. Stepping out at 68 is far too young. My deepest sympathy to Janice, all the children, and especially the Grands who he loved dearly.

To say that the world has lost a big friendly giant is exactly what happened the day that Eddie passed away. I will always Remember whenever I would see Janice I would see Eddie standing always near her just smiling away. It was like he knew something that no one else knew and if you listened long enough he would tell you all about it. You will be missed, thank you God for blessing us with him.
