Michael Steven Wilson

Michael Steven Wilson, 63, left the loving arms of his family on Saturday, June 1, 2019, at CHI Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, Tenn.

He will forever be missed by his wife, Myra; son, Daniel (Ashley) Braun; grandsons, Alex and Austin; and sister Joyce Johnson, all of Dayton; brother, Randy (Sheri) Wilson, of Pikeville, Tenn.; and a close-knit family of nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Clara Potter Wilson; and father, John B. Wilson, of Dayton.

Steve was born in Jacksonville, Fla., and as a military ‘brat’ he attended several different schools in different states. He graduated from high school in 1974 in Port Hueneme, Calif., and immediately enlisted in the U.S. Army. Steve was a proud member of the Airborne Rangers. In 1994, he and Myra Braun married and he became the father to Dan. Steve and Myra moved the family home to Dayton in 2006. The light of his life was grandson Alex. He was so proud of his family and he will be in our hearts forever.

The family will host close friends and extended family in a Celebration of Life on June 29, 2019, at Spivey Memorial United Methodist Church.
