Obituary for Milford Dennis Wilson

Milford Dennis Wilson, 73, passed away suddenly on Sunday, January 6, 2019 in Durham.

Dennis was born in Wayne County on February 1, 1945 to the late Marion Daniels “Scrooge” Wilson and Eleanor Parks Wilson. For many years, Dennis and his brother, Regis, owned and operated Wilson Grading Company in Goldsboro. His first and favorite occupation, however, was a farmer, and many of his happiest times were spent atop one of his tractors on the family farm. In addition to the crops they raised on the farm, he also grew turkeys for Goldsboro Milling Company. Dennis proudly served his country in the United States Army and served his community with the Elroy Volunteer Fire Department. Dennis will always be remembered for his love of a good practical joke whether done to him or by him as well as his true love of family, friends, life and work.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 from 6:00 -7:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Dennis’ life at 7:00 p.m. in the chapel with Mike Parks officiating. The family will also greet friends Wednesday following the service at the funeral home and other times at his home. Interment will be on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in the Wilson Family Cemetery.

Dennis is survived by his wife, Brenda Best Wilson; daughters, Hope Casey and husband Chris and Crystal Scrufari and husband Michael; and grandchildren, Gracie Casey, Adrienne Casey and Troy Casey. He is also survived by his brothers, Regis Wilson, Joe Wilson (Wanda), and John Wilson (Wanda); sisters, Linda Smith (Sammy), Ruth Smith (Kent), Mary Grady (Jarvis) and Esther Wilson; and several nieces and nephews he loved very much.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Lamont Wilson.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be given in his memory to the charity of one’s choice.
