Lawrence Bradshall Wilson, Jr. passed away March 5, 2019 at Suburban Community Hospital.

Born in West Chester, PA, he was the son of the late Lawrence B. Wilson, Sr. and the late Anna Peterson McMillan and step father, Bobby McMillan.

He was preceded in death by brother, Author “Tink” Wilson, his sister Violet “Pixie” Wilson-Green as well as 3 grandsons.

  2. I just so happen to be looking through the obituaries because I was reading my grandfathers, he passed last year. I decided to write because like Mr. Wilson I am a Marine. I just wanted to reach out too your family and give my condolences. Mr. Wilson is a brother too me and too thousands of other Marines around the country and the world. I know that it is hard and that you as a family are grieving your lost but for what it is worth, He will be remembered by not only your family but his extended family that is the Marine Corps. The gates of heaven are guarded by Marines so his entire should go smooth.

    Semper FI,

    P.S I was born and raised in the kennett Square, West Chester, Coatesville area.
