SACO — T. Wesley Wilson passed away peacefully in his sleep, on July 17, 2015, with his loving wife Beverly, and his stepchildren by his side.

He was born on November 26, 1921 on the eastern shore of Maryland, the son of Clinton and Elsie North Wilson, and is a graduate of Brevard College in North Carolina. In 1942, he obtained a pilot’s license, but because he was found to be color blind, he was not allowed to fly for the U.S. Army Air Corps. He worked in Army Intelligence during World War II and he continued on for another six years in Germany working for the State Department.

In 1955, he returned home and married his first wife, Helen Nash, who died in 1982. He worked for the next 30 years as a traveling auditor. He loved the sea and boating, and upon his retirement, he joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary where he enjoyed serving as their finance officer until recent years.

He loved nature and he lived a full life as an avid photographer, skier and sailor, who also enjoyed traveling, card games and cartography.

He is survived by: his wife, Beverly Wilson of Saco; a sister, Rosabelle Brown; five stepchildren; seven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

Friends may call from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, 2015, at Bibber Memorial Chapel, 67 Summer St., Kennebunk. A private interment with military honors will be in Blanchard Cemetery in Falmouth.
