Dr. Noah James Wilson

Dr. Noah James Wilson, 76, of Kingston, Okla., left this earth on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017, for a new and better life after having battled Parkinson’s for almost 20 years. N.J., the name everyone called him while growing up, was born on April 12, 1941, at his home place in Senath, Mo., to Cecil X. and Velma Sylvia (Hall) Wilson. He grew up on a Southeast Missouri family farm where he spent many... what seemed like endless hours...working in the fields chopping and picking cotton... which probably became his main motivation to pursue a college education. N.J. was quite accident prone, and his mother always said that he probably wouldn’t live long enough to reach adulthood. As a matter of fact, he nearly poked out his sister’s eye with a fishing pole, jammed a stick down his own tonsils, and even rode his bicycle off the front porch. Also, one of the things he loved more than anything was chewing gum.
