Bob is preceded in death by his dad and mom, Harley and Sarah Wilson; three sisters: Bernice Watson, Dorothy Sheets, and Clara Morris; and a brother, Presley Haughee.

"In addition to his wife and kids, Bob is survived by two sisters, Jane Bivens of Ohio and Barb Hardman of Indiana; two brothers Ray Wilson and Virgil Wilson, both of Indiana; his grandchildren: Jodie Caldwell and family of Virginia; Braxton Blair and family of TN; Jessi Payne of CO; Ashley Wilson of NC; Heather Keaton of WV; Brandon Keaton and family of WV; Alex Cleary and family of NC; Bradley Blair and family of WV; Scott Cleary and family of NC; and Kelsey Price of WV; 13 great-grandchildren, a host of nieces and nephews; and a special fur baby, Allie.
