Kevin Wilson

Kevin was born to Lillie Gadsden and Bennie Wilson on February 3rd, 1961. He was called home to receive his wings on February 5th, 2021.

Kevin grew up in Brooklyn, NY where he attended public school. He had a big heart and was always willing to help anyone in need. He was charming funny and full of life. He was also a very good salesman who could persuade anyone to buy anything he was selling. He loved working independently and was very family oriented.

Kevin was known for his magnetic personality which made people gravitate to him. We first met in September of 1984 then married in June 1986. Later that year we had a son and then our daughter in 1991.

He leaves behind a legacy of loving family members to cherish his memories: His wife Andrea Wilson; two children – Kevin Wilson Jr and Ki’Auna Wilson – Daughter in-law Rihanna Wilson; Grandchildren – Kevin Kamari Wilson; Rayelle Riley Wilson & Delilah Kaylee Bunn; 3 sisters – Belinda Gilmore; Patricia Hawkins & Sharon Anderson; 2- brothers – Troy Wilson & Steven Gadsden; 6 Sister-in-laws; 7 Brother-in-laws; 12 Nieces; 12 Nephews; 17 Great Nieces; 9 Great Nephews and a host of extended family & friends.

Family and friends who wish to attend the visitation virtually may click the following link on Thursday between 4-8pm Wilson Services

May you always walk in sunshine and God’s love around you flow, for the happiness you gave us, no one will ever know. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, a part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

So long for now “My Love” we thank GOD for allowing us the time we had with you and hope you’ll rest eternally in peace. Amen.

        I love that brother by his spirit… from the time we met-years ago in Harlem, then recently again, in BK, we were able to speak life into one another and encourage one another. He could take criticism better today than he use to and life had humbled and seasoned him. I will miss our honest laughter-most times we were laughing at ourselves. You are missed, K-Dub…

    Can’t really find the words to say how much you’ve help me The love that you showed me early on on this journey I love you Kev

  14. Jason Williamson (family) on February 18, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    Kevin was always good energy to me and around
    me. I appreciate the finger print he left on my life and celebrate who he was to me (family). I never saw him not smiling and would raise your spirits no matter what was going on. He made you feel it was going to be okay and that’s all you need some times. Who will pick up the mantle now that the king is gone (I really don’t know).

    I’m thankful for him and the legacy he left with his immediate family (wife, children, grandchildren) they will pick up the mantle and forge ahead with that same energy once we all recover from such a loss. God bless you Kevin and your legacy is well established with us all.
