James “Jim” Baird Wilson (84) born in Hartstown, PA went to be with the Lord at 9:10 on December 26th, surrounded by loved ones in his home after a struggle with Congestive Heart Failure. Please join us on Saturday, Jan 2nd at 1 pm at New Smyrna Beach First Baptist Church to celebrate his life and to support all those he left behind. Jim was raised with his 5 siblings on a farm, instilling his love of gardening and wildlife, his strong values of hard work and personal responsibility. A supportive and loyal husband for over 60 years, father of 4, and active man of faith, Jim graduated from Thiel College with a Physics degree in 1949 and began his working career with the railroad in PA. He was an engineer and patent holder at Union Carbide and for a short time was the Mayor of Conneaut, OH. He became an engineer for General Motors working in OH, MI, and MD; he was the Hospital Facilities Engineer at Johns Hopkins and worked for our family business, Jet Blast Inc. He retired in 1992 and moved to New Smyrna Beach with his wife, Muriel.  Jim loved the outdoors, whether he was fishing, which he did a lot, bird counting, teaching his kids and grandkids about the chemical makeup of soil or just explaining how everything is related to everything else.  His mantra of”actions speak louder than words” was a true part of his life as he was a Speaker and President of the Volusia Gideon’s Ministry, Deacon and President of his church and helped to found the Pregnancy Crisis Clinic to assist young mothers. He carried and transported furniture to the Clinic’s sponsor Thrift Store into his 80’s and his works in the missions’ field were extensive. Jim is survived by his loving wife Muriel, his children Sue, Jim and Tim who all reside in MD, seven grandchildren and countless friends. He will be sorely missed but leaves behind a tremendous legacy of making the world a better place for all those he touched. 1:00 PM Saturday, January 2, 2010 First Baptist Church 214 Sams Avenue New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168 (map/driving directions) Rocky Glen Cemetery Adamsville, Pennsylvania

    I want to offer my deepest condolences to the Wilson family in the loss of your loved one. I didn't know Mr. Wislon, but from all the kind things you said about him, I know he was a wonderful person. And I hope that reading Acts 24:15 will give you some comfort, knowing that you will see him again in the resurrection. And may the God of tender mercies continue to bless you and strengthen you through this very difficult time. Mary Ann
