WILSON, Alan - It is with profound sadness to announce that "Everybody's Pal Big Al" Wilson has passed away unexpectedly on February 4, 2016 in a place he truly loved to be, Grand Bend, Ontario at the age of 71. Al will be sadly missed by his sister-in-law Jill Wilson and his nieces Colleen Church, Judy (Tony) Schlegel, Mary-Ellen (Tom) Oates, Shirley Wilson, Jackie Wilson, Laurel Wilson and Beth Bowes and his nephew Paul (Laurie) Bowes and his many great nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his parents William and Madonna (Weiler) Wilson, brother William Wilson, sister Margaret Bowes, brother-in-law Mickey Bowes and nephew Richard Bowes. Al was known for his great sense of humour, laughter and love of drag racing! He spent many hours at the Grand Bend Motorplex, making new friends each and every time.
