John Arnold Wilson


John Arnold Wilson, 82, passed away on November 14, 2023, in Dallas, Texas. He was born on January 12, 1941, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to parents Carl and Agnes (Moulton) Wilson.

John was a stoic man who approached his work with utmost dedication. His career as a jeweler spanned decades and he was known for his intricate designs and attention to detail. Each piece he created was a testament to his skill and creativity, leaving a lasting legacy in the world of jewelry. Beyond his profession, John had a multifaceted personality that brought joy to those around him. While some may have perceived him as stoic, those who knew him well experienced the delight of his goofiness and ability to bring laughter to any situation. His quick wit and playful nature will be fondly remembered by all who had the pleasure of spending time in his company.

When not busy at work or engaging in silly antics, John immersed himself in various hobbies and interests. He found solace and enjoyment in ham radio operation, soldering circuit boards, deer hunting, and building things. His passion for fixing and creating extended beyond jewelry making. In fact, he lent a helping hand to Charles when it came to building their home.

John is preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Agnes Wilson; brother, Donald Wilson; wife, Nancy Trahan Wilson; and son, Johnny Williams.

John is survived by his son, Sean Carl and wife Maria of Spain; son, Charles Issac Wilson of Eustace, TX; son, James Kelly Wilson of Eustace, TX; son, Patrick Earl Wilson of Ft. Worth, TX; daughter, Dana Leyva and husband Fred of Orange, TX; grandkids, Daniel, Jax, Carl, Madilynn, Finley, Amanda, Lauren, Allen, Kayla, Olivia, and Kyndale; ex-wife and dear friend Georgena Wilson of Gun Barrel City, TX; as well as numerous other family and friends.
