James Reeves Wilder Sr. Our Beloved husband, father and friend, has gone home to his Savior and Lord, on December 13th.

He passed away comfortably at his home with his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lorraine and Otis Wilder, his granddaughters Caitlin and Elizabeth Talley and Josie Kate Wilder.
