Richard "Dick" V. Wilson, age 90, of Quincy, went to be with his Lord on Thursday, April 11, 2019, at 10:15 p.m. in Blessing Hospital.

Richard was born May 9, 1928 in Quincy, Illinois, the son of Max and Alvina Viehmeyer Wilson. He married Rita Mae Oshner on August 19, 1951 in Quincy, Illinois. She survives.

After graduating from high school, Richard served in the United States Army.

Richard was employed as a computer numerical control operator for Harris Corporation, until his retirement in 1985. After his retirement, Richard and Rita moved to Texas where he owned and operated his own company, Wilson Janitorial. He was a member of the First Baptist Church in McKinney, Texas. In 2014, Richard and Rita decided to return to Quincy.

Richard loved mushroom hunting, but the true light of his life was his family. Richard cherished every moment spent with his family. The relationships and roles he had as a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather were the most important part of his life.

Survivors in addition to his wife, Rita, include six children: Rita Jo (Bernie) Henze of Tulsa, OK; Tina (Joseph) Grimes of McKinney, TX; Vicki (Harold) Garner of Quincy; Debbie (Kinney) Grisham of Aubrey, TX; Jeffrey (Carol) Wilson of Payson, IL; and Robert Wilson of Quincy; 19 grandchildren; 37 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild.

Richard was preceded in death by his parents, a great-grandson, Justin James Scronce, a sister, Norma Parker, and a brother, Donald Wilson.
