Kenneth "Doug" Wilson

October 15, 1956 ~ April 24, 2022 (age 65)


Kenneth Douglas Wilson "Doug", age 65, of Knoxville, TN., departed this life on Sunday, April 24 at his home after a long illness. 

Doug was father to three children: Amanda Wilson Arko (Michael) of Murfreesboro; Melissa Anne Wilson and Jess Ryan Wilson (Sara), both of Knoxville. He was a grandfather to six grandchildren, Cadence, Hannah, Logan, Sylv, Holly, and Fox.

He leaves behind his partner, Anna Spencer and her granddaughter, Brookelyn. He was born in Polk County, TN in 1956 to Kenneth and Dolores Wilson and was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth Donald Wilson. 

Doug is also survived by his mother, Dolores Cheek Wilson of Knoxville and by his sisters: Debbie Wilson Mitchell (Ben) of Louisville, TN; Donna Wilson McClure (James) and Nancy Dianne Wilson, both of Knoxville. 

He previously served in the USAF for six years and was stationed in Valdosta, GA. Like his father, Doug was a lifelong fisherman and was happiest heading to a creek in the Cherokee Forest or fishing on the beach on St. George Island. The family wishes to extend our heartfelt appreciation to UT Hospice for their constant kindness and compassion and also to Greg Weller, Doug’s “bud for 50 years”.

A celebration of life is pending.
