Wilson Lee Privett, 74 of Arley, entered into rest on Thursday, April 1, 2021 at his home surrounded by his loving family.
Wilson was born on September 13, 1946 in Addison, Alabama. He was the rock and hero of his family. He loved helping people and was willing to give the shirt off his back to someone in need. Wilson was a hardcore Alabama football fan, but also loved the Miami Dolphins. He always had a cigar in his mouth and if he didn’t have one, you knew something was wrong.
Visitation will be held on Monday, April 5, 2021 from 1:30 to 3pm at Nichols Funeral Home in Addison, where services will be held at 3pm. Burial will follow in Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery in the Nesmith Community.
