Obituary for Deacon Arthur Wilson

Deacon Arthur Wilson of Bridgeport, Connecticut was born on December 14, 1931. He peacefully entered eternal rest on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at Lord Chamberlain Health Care Center.

He was born in Chuckatuck, Virginia to the late Wesley and Anne Wilson. Arthur Wilson was one of 16 children, 10 boys and 6 girls.

Upon arriving to Bridgeport he was employed at Borden’s Dairy in Bridgeport and then began using his skillful hands as a Brick Mason until his retirement.

After his marriage in 1954, he was fruitful and had 8 children.

Deacon Wilson was a faithful member of Cathedral of Praise for 64 years, serving in several capacities during his membership. Deacon Wilson served as President of the Usher’s Board, was a member of the Senior Choir and was called upon frequently to bless the congregation with a solo of his favorite song “How Great Thou Art.” Deacon Wilson was also fondly known to some as the “Biscuit Man” as he blessed us with his mouth watering homemade buttery biscuits. Fishing and gardening were two of his favorite pastime hobbies.

In addition to his parents, six brothers and five sisters predeceased him.
He leaves to cherish his memory eight children, sons, Nathaniel of Wallingford, Arthur, Jr. and Jehu of Bridgeport; five daughters, Ruth Gardner of Hawaii, Manasseh Blackwell of Hamden, Sherah (David) Rodriguez of Ansonia, Charity (Edmond) Jones of Cary, NC and Naomi (fiancé Pat) of Raleigh, NC; 14 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren; three brothers, Edward of Baltimore, MD, Reverend Vernon Wilson of Suffolk, VA, Reverend Ollie Wilson of Lynchburg, VA; and one sister, Anne Jane of Suffolk, VA.
