Donald Larry Wilson, age 81 of Logan, Ohio passed away on Monday, November 1, 2021 at Hocking Valley Community Hospital in Logan.
Born February 26, 1940 in New Lexington, Ohio, he was the son of the late Warren Romaine and Velma Odessa (Hammers) Wilson.
Donald was a 1958 graduate of New Lexington High School. He was a U.S. Army Veteran, having served during the Korean Conflict and Vietnam as an engineer. Donald retired from the Post Office in Columbus, Ohio in 1992. He was a former 30 year member of the Church of God in Logan, where he was a bible schoolteacher and held bible study for the elderly at local nursing homes. Donald enjoyed years of vacationing with his family, fishing, watching westerns and home movies, and collecting superhero figurines. Always the joker, he was a kid at heart and a cowboy or superhero in his mind. Most of all, Donald loved spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. To them, he was a superhero!
