John ‘Jeff’ Wilson

Feb. 15, 1951 – May 31, 2021

John Jeffery (Jeff) Wilson, 70, of Buffalo, passed away on May 31, 2021, in his home.

Jeff was born in Aberdeen, South Dakota, to John and Cherie Wilson-Casey on Feb. 15, 1951. He went to high school at Mounds View Senior High and graduated in 1969. He went on to earn a certificate in business/upholstery from Century College. He worked as an electrical project manager for several electrical companies for more than 26 years. His favorite job was working as a museum guide at Fort Phil Kearny in Banner, sharing his love of history with anyone who would listen, and when visitors would ask questions, it made his day. He enjoyed being with his family and his friends. Jeff loved animals, especially our Cavaliers, and he was an avid horse lover, a horse whisperer in his own right. Jeff was a patriot, an honorable man, an authentic friend and someone whose integrity was unshakeable.

Jeff is survived by his wife, Adelaide “Addie” (Sand) Wilson, of Buffalo. Jeff is survived by his children Heather Wilson, Natalie Wilson-Haugen, Jesse Wilson (Lacey) and Zachary Wilson. Jeff is survived by his sisters Jackie (Larry) Lehman and Judi Neumann and nephews and nieces Dale Neumann (Colleen), Curt Lehman, Lexie Lehman, Obie Wilson (Debbie), Sonny (Jill) Wilson, Benjamin Wilson and Kadie Wilson. Jeff is survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Jeff was preceded in death by his grandparents, parents and brother, Timothy Arthur (Paula) Wilson.

A celebration of life memorial service will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 1, 2021, at Volunteers of America, Bill Daniels Chapel, 3390 Strahan Parkway, Sheridan. A light lunch will be served. Please feel free to share any of your memories of Jeff at this link: www.bustardcares.com.
