Ralph “R.E.” Eugene Wilson

Ralph “R.E.” Eugene Wilson 86, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 22, 2017 in Bryan, Texas. Born on February 26, 1930 in Leroy, Illinois, Ralph spent his career as a truck driver and involved in the trucking industry, which allowed him to see most, if not all, of our country while logging over 6 million miles. He never ran out of ideas on how to improve or modify his equipment. He had his truck frame stretched to provide a large enough “house” for his wife to join him, and duly named it “The Whopper”. He couldn’t wait to get home, enjoy a beer with his friends and large family, and tell of his many adventures while out on the road.

Ida May Kraft 1947 - 2017

Feel no guilt in laughter She knows how much you care Feel no sorrow in a smile That she's not here to share She would not want you to She'd hope that you would carry on The way you always do So talk about the good times And the ways you showed you cared The days you spent together All the happiness you shared Let memories surround you A word someone might say Will suddenly recapture A time, an hour, a day That brings her back as clearly As though she was still here And fills you with the feelings That say she's always near For if you keep those moments You will never be apart And they will live forever Safely locked within your heart.
