Obituary of Nathan J Wilson

Nathan J. Wilson passed away Wednesday, July 13th, 2022, at his farm. Nathan was born to the late Clarence Wilson & Shirley Briston Wilson on April 9th, 1947. He grew up on the family farm on Old Chautauqua Rd, Sinclairville NY, where he gained his love of farming and John Deere 2 cylinders. He graduated from CVCS High School in 1965 and went on to attend Alfred State. After graduating college in 1967, Nathan married Julia Sylvester on July 29th, 1968, in the living room of what would later become their home & the Wilson Farm, or as Nathan would sometimes refer to it as, “Gobbler’s Knob”. He served in the U.S. Army & was honorably discharged in 1973. Nathan went on to be a dairy farmer for 39 years, earning a Dairy of Distinction in 2008, and retiring from farming in 2010. Nathan was also known for his writing. He wrote articles for The Milkweed, a monthly newsletter focused on farming & agricultural news. His writing was also featured in the Post Journal, Modern Farmer, and The Buffalo News. He will be remembered by his wife Julia S. Wilson, & their 2 children, Duncan Wilson & Mitzi Wilson Kendrick and he will always be remembered as a loving Papa to his 3 granddaughters, Dana M. Wilson, Aurora A. Wilson, & Cleo M. Kendrick. He is also survived by his brother Dennis Wilson. He was preceded in death by his brother Jim Wilson. Nathan certainly entered heaven to herd of dogs scratching at the door & the bellowing moos of cows ready to be let out. Memorial service 8p.m. Monday in Jordan Funeral Home, Sinclairville with visitation beginning at 6 p.m. Private burial in Evergreen Cemetery. The family requests donations in Nathan’s name that further, or help with the education of youth in agricultural careers.
