Mark Wilson passed away peacefully in his home in Burnsville, NC, December 24, 2019 after a second struggle with cancer. He was 69 years old.
The Wilson family moved from Glendale, CA to Marietta, GA when Mark was 1. He graduated from Wheeler High School (Marietta). He attended Georgia State University and West Georgia College in Carrolton, GA. Mark enjoyed a varied career in the broad field of retail. Mark escaped childhood through the straights of Mormonism and eventually branched out into many expressions of liberation and a search for deepening spiritual truth. Sensitivity to God’s beautiful nature and nurturing a deep love for his fellow man, Mark manifested a slice of heaven in his choice of where to live his last year of life before actually moving on.
Mark is preceded in death by his parents, Bette (Edholm) and Larry Wilson of Marietta, and his brother, Dewi (John David) also of Marietta. Mark leaves behind cousins Alice Wilson Abram and Edna Wilson Burow of California.
A memorial service is being planned to be held in January at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Burnsville, NC.
