Wayne Anthony Wilson born on January 31, 1959 in Gastonia, North Carolina, departed this life on Monday, February 3, 2020. Wayne is preceded in death by his daughter, Victoria Hicks, father, John H. Wilson, sister Wanda Wilson and niece Robyn Cole.

Wayne was married to his beloved wife and best friend, Maxine Wilson, whom he affectionately called "CupCake", for nearly three decades. He was a devoted husband and loved his entire family, his church family, his students and players he worked with daily and his many friends.

Wayne professed his faith and love of God at an early age and has been an active and faithful servant of God. He was a member of St. Mark Baptist Church where he was a committed servant on the Deacon Board, Men's Ministry, Superintendent of Sunday School, Choir Member, Church Security and driving the church van.

Wayne Wilson was employed by Toledo Public Schools 37 years and also served as a union steward. He found remarkable joy in serving as a Basketball Coach for elementary, freshman and junior varsity teams at Lincoln and DeVeaux Elementary, Start High School, Rogers High School and Waite High School. In addition to coaching, he was always "fired up" about getting his players into colleges. Wayne treasured his relationships with the other coaches, players and their families.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife Maxine, mother, Jessie Wilson, her twin Betty Johnson, sisters Cassandra, Regina and Patricia Wilson, nephew Keenan Cole and great niece Kendell Cole, mother-in-law Maggie Woodard sisters-in-law Victoria and Jennifer Woodard, brothers-in-law Kenneth, Gary, Dwight Woodard and Danny Patterson (Pearl). God-children Arianna Bias, Charles Cudjoe, Sean Warren and Brandon Anderson. And a host of loved and treasured aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces and awesome friends, Charles Gibson III and Rev. Manny May Sr.
