Celebrating the Life
Eugene Francis Wilson
January 8, 1958 – September 3, 2020
The family of Eugene F. Wilson would like to extend our heartfelt and sincere gratitude for all your acts of kindness, prayers, calls, messages of comfort and hugs. Our hearts are heavy, but we rest assure knowing that he is at peace.
Eugene was born and raised in Washington, DC and graduated from Dunbar High School where he also played varsity football and baseball. Following graduation, he went on to attend University of Maryland Eastern Shore, where he continued his football career, and later graduated from University of Maryland, College Park. Eugene spent his career working as an educator in the Washington, DC and Maryland public school systems and played an instrumental role in the learning growth and development of thousands of students.
Eugene lived his life as a loving son, brother and father who enjoyed reading and studying the Bible, writing poetry, working out, playing and watching sports. He is survived by his two children, Tina Wilson, Tyrone Wilson and their mother Pamela Stewart; his two brothers Tyrone P. Wilson and Michael Wilson; his nieces and nephews; and the rest of his family and friends.
Eugene is preceded in death by his mother, Theresa Ann Wilson.
Mathew 5:16 reads “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is heaven.” Eugene strived to exemplify those words as he lived. And in doing so, he touched and impacted many lives.
