Wilbur was a great guy. I remember he was pretty fast... We played a lot of soccer together, laughed a ton, & he is missed.

Another person that I knew ever since Woodville Heights. He was a good person and someone you could count on being a friend. He will be missed tremendously.

Wilbur was awesome. He and I cut up alot at Siwell and would get in trouble with the teachers on a regular basis. He was a fun guy!

I was really saddened when I received the news that Wilbur had passed. He and I meet when we started at Siwell Jr. High. We became the best of friends because we both loved JROTC and liked to TALK and CLOWN around! We were able to still remain close friends during our FORMATIVE years at Forest Hill. Wilbur was my Debutante Cotillion escort, which just shows you how close we were! He endured all those long boring rehearsals and learned how to WALTZ for a friend. I have missed him and always will!
