Ronald "Butch" Wilson

February 11, 1949 — October 13, 2023

Eglon

Ronald "Butch" Lee Wilson, 74, of Eglon, passed away on October 13, 2023, under the care of WV Caring in Elkins. Born on February 11, 1949, in Cleveland, OH, he was the son of the late Roy and Geraldine (Shaffer) Wilson.

After graduating high school, Butch made a lifelong career being a coal miner and one of the many coal mines he worked for was Island Creek Coal Company, from which many of his local coworkers would remember him. He enjoyed hunting and trout fishing, especially when fishing included spending time with his family. Butch was a proud member of the Mt. Grove Volunteer Fire Department, where he served the community for over 58 years and, most recently, earned the position of Captain of the department.

He is survived by his wife, Leona (Wilhelm) Wilson, to whom he was married on October 19, 2019; two children, Crystal Morton of Oakland and Jeffery Wilson of Eglon; a stepson, James Reed of Oakland; five grandchildren, Tiffini Sisler, Charles Sisler, Nathaniel Wilson, Kyle Morton, and Tyler Morton; and two siblings, Connie White and Charlene Arnold.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Paulette Lucy Wilson, and a brother, Donnie Wilson.
