Jeffery J. Wilson, age 66, of Kewaskum, Wisconsin, passed away Wednesday, February 22, 2023 at Aurora Health Center in Grafton, WI due to complications of lingering illnesses.

To my brother, Jeff. You were bigger than life and I looked up to you so much even though I was a year older. You would do anything for your family and friends. I loved your laugh, you’d start to tell a joke and you couldn’t finish it because you would be laughing so hard. I knew I could count on you to help me with anything and there were times that you did. I know you loved your kids so much. I will truly miss you. I loved you so much!
Your sister, Pam
