Stanley Wyatt Wilson, 55, died March 1 at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Pendleton following a short battle with pneumonia.
Stan was born on Jan. 9, 1958, in Pendleton to Fred and Peggy Wilson. Stan loved horses, dogs and anything to do with “cowboying.” When he was 15 years old, Stan was in an almost fatal vehicle accident that left him a paraplegic.
Although Stan was never fully able to walk or talk again, he touched the lives of everyone that he met, and he never lost his sense of humor.
Stan is survived by his daughters, Ruby and Moriah Wilson, both of Sweet Home; father, Fred Wilson of Pilot Rock; mother, Peggy Jamison of Burns; brother, Dean Wilson and wife Janel of Pendleton; sister, Jane Shelley and husband Glen of Burns; nephews and nieces, Scott Wilson, Kari Vantine, Shantel Thorton, Monel Shelley and Wyatt Shelley; and many cousins, aunts, uncles, friends and care providers.
