Curtis R. Wilson died on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. Born and raised in Cloquet, MN by Roy Curtis and Jane B (Fay) Wilson, who predeceased him, he is survived by the love of his life, Lisa Wilson, who he married on May 25, 1991 and their daughter Zoë Rose Wilson and her fiancé John A. “Alex” Reinman.
A graduate of Cloquet High School and the University of Minnesota with a BS in Electrical Engineering, where he played hockey, Curt worked for various engineering firms over the years, before starting his own consulting practice Wilson & Wilson, LLC in 2001. Devoted to his clients, who spanned the country, he enjoyed every aspect of a profession he knew he wanted to pursue from the time he was a young teenager.
Athletic and outdoor endeavors and music were the soundtrack of his life. An avid outdoorsman, whether it was skiing or golfing with Zoë and friends, hunting, fishing, picking rocks or walking or hiking a new trail or town, Curt maintained his curiosity. A gifted athlete, he played hockey for the University of Minnesota, joined baseball, softball and golf leagues. He loved everything about the sky, whether it was viewing it through a telescope, flying through it while piloting a plane or hang gliding himself or with a student. An accomplished musician, Curt played the violin and guitar in orchestras, bands and at home.
He is also survived by his daughter Julie Ann Wilson and grandson Sam Miller of Coleraine, MN and granddaughter Kyra Anne Wilson of Swan River, MN, his brothers Keith L. Wilson of Huntsville, AL, Joel D. Wilson of Cloquet, MN, Ross N. Wilson of Chippewa Falls, WI, his uncle Thomas (Cecilia) Fay and their son Phillip of Rockford, IL, his aunt, Esther Fay of Champaign, IL, nieces and nephews, Sarah and Greg Partridge of Atlanta, GA, Ryan Wilson of Huntsville, AL, Laura Wilson and Nancy (Craig) Korpela of Shoreview, MN and Jennifer Milbrandt of Forest Lake, MN, in laws Douglas and Georgiana Sweetman of Conway, SC and countless family friends.
Arrangements are being handled by Wm. G. Miller and Son Funeral Home, 371 Hooker Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY. On Saturday, November 30, 2019, calling hours will be held from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm directly followed by a memorial service.
