Grady Wilson, 74, passed from this life on December 8, 2020 at the Veterans Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  Born on January 8, 1946 in Bruce, Grady was a son to the late William Glen Wilson and Shirley Elaine Wilson.

Grady found a career, spanning over two and a half decades, with the Weyerhaeuser Corporation.  Grady didn’t simply pass away; he held the cure to death in his soul, an active relationship with Jesus where he worshiped Him at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church.
