John Hunter Wilson, 85 years old, passed away in Post Falls, Idaho, on Nov. 9. He was born in Denver on Oct. 28, 1929, and graduated high school there. He served in the Army in the Korean War and graduated from MIT with a degree in math.
Before living in Post Falls, he lived in Pagosa Springs in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. He was always willing to lend a helping hand and volunteered at Head Start and the Senior Center, delivering Meals on Wheels. John always enjoyed the outdoors — hiking, camping, fishing, skiing, collecting mushrooms and cutting wood. Other pastimes included reading, chess games, walking his Shar-Pei dogs and playing Wii Bowl on the computer.
John left behind special friends Kathy and Ron Rogers and Lynn McNutt, both of Post Falls.
John, you were very special and we will miss you.
The Young family: Carole, Kim, Scott and Kelley, Pagosa Springs.
