Kenneth Kenny Leroy Wilson, 76, of Perrysville, Ind., went to be with his Lord and Savior at 10:20 p.m. Sunday, May 10, 2015, at St. Vincents Seton Hospital in Indianapolis.

He was born August 1, 1938, the son of Lee Wilson and Mary (Ellis) Wilson in Perrysville. He was a lifelong resident of Perrysville, graduating in 1957 from Perrysville High School. Kenny was a farmer all of his life and raised Angus cattle. He was a school bus driver for the North Vermillion school district for 42 years.

He attended Stringtown Church of God, was a Sunday school teacher for many years, and was very active in his church. He was also active in the work of the Gideons International. He loved reading his Bible, and singing Gospel music.

He was a fan of the Indiana Hoosiers basketball team.
He loved his family and his church family, and he enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren. He had traveled to all fifty states, but his favorite site was the Perrysville city limits. In 2013, he took his entire family to Alaska in celebration of 50 years of marriage, and his 75th birthday.
