Richard L. “Buddy” Wilson, 63, entered into Heaven on December 7th, 2020 while he was in Cincinnati, Ohio.
He was born on August 31st, 1957 in a trailer in Dearborn County, Indiana, son of William E. Wilson and Alma “Kipp” Wilson
Buddy ran B & W Motors for 41 years. Before he opened up his own used car dealership, he spent several years working at the family-owned dealership, Wilson Motors, as a young man under his father’s guidance.
Buddy was a Christian man that loved Jesus. He enjoyed spending time in the outdoors, doing activities such as boating, water sports, fishing, and deer/turkey hunting. He loved animals, and enjoyed spending time with his dogs. He also enjoyed watching movies, riding Roller Coasters, detailing cars, and watching NASCAR. He enjoyed watching his daughter’s concerts the most. He truly loved being a husband and a father. He thoroughly made family vacations a memory you’d never forget. He also enjoyed being a loving brother and Uncle. He was a hard-working man. If he was able to help anybody in need, he would.
Buddy is survived by his ever-supportive loving wife Linda Wilson (Kime) with whom he shared his love with for over 37 years; his cherished daughter Laura Elizabeth Wilson of Lawrenceburg, IN; his brother Gary Wilson (Stephanie Warnock) of Ocala FL; Kristine “Kris” (David) Colley of Lawrenceburg, IN; Greg Wilson of KY; Jeff (Missi) Wilson of Lawrenceburg IN; and several uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
