Kenneth Paul Wilson, 78 of Aurora passed away on the morning of July 22nd, 2021 on his property in Jenkins, Mo. He attended school at Fairview and then went on to graduate high school from Cassville. He chased his future wife of 54 years to Kansas City where they resided for a few years before returning and settling in Jenkins to start a successful Dairy Operation that he ran until he retired.  Kenneth loved his family and enjoyed going to his grandkids school events and spending time in the garage with his boys.  He had a passion for old cars that he passed on to his boys. In his early years he had a hard time getting home from work without having to get into a race. He loved to play the guitar. He played most every Sunday in church.  He was a great son, brother, dad, grandfather and servant of the Lord. He is rejoicing with his family in heaven now as we sit here saying goodbye. 

           Survivors include his wife, Vivian; two sons, Michael Wilson of Cassville, MO. and Bryan Wilson of Jenkins, MO.; two sisters, Louella Mooneyham and husband, Rex of Aurora, MO. and Rhonda Wilson of Shell Knob, MO.; and 4 grandchildren, Cade, Brylee, Lucas and Emily Wilson.

            He was preceded in death by his parents, Horrel and Cupie and his sister, Aleene Wilson.
