David Alfred Wilson

David Alfred Wilson, known to most as “Bub,” passed away on Wednesday, May 27, 2020 at the age of 81 years.

Bub was a wonderful husband and father who took care of his daughters and did his best to guide with a strong moral compass. He was a loving “papaw” who took extreme pride in each of his grandchildren. He was a strong patriarch, caring more for his family than himself.

Never afraid of hard work, he was an oilfield worker for over 50 years.

He loved fishing, Saints football, Willie Nelson, and casinos. Bub will be fondly remembered for his singing in the shower and will remain in our hearts forever.

A small graveside memorial service will be held at a later date.

He was preceded in death by his father Albert Earl Wilson, mother Audrey Wilson, and sister Kathleen Wilson Bruce.

Survivors include his wife and sweetheart of 57 years, Janis Wilson; his children, Debbie Thompson (Whit) of Tallulah and Shelly Cruse (Ronnie) of Olla; and grandchildren, Nikki Thompson of Galveston, TX and Jonathan and Ryan Cruse of New Orleans.

Memorial donations in memory of Bub may be made to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Memorial Giving, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
