David Edward Wilson, age 66 of Southbury, previously of Milford, lost his battle after many months of fighting in Yale ICU on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. David was born in Bridgeport, December 31, 1952, son of the late Clyde and Anna Harrison Wilson. David was a man who worked and provided for his family and always wore a smile on his face and had a heart of gold. He was the devoted husband of 40 years to Linda Sue Hayes Wilson, and the loving and caring father of twins Jason Edward Wilson and Jenea Marie Wilson. One of his most prized memories was the gift of being a Pop, aka grandfather, to his favorite little boy, Joseph J. Gagliardi III, son of his daughter and her fiancée Joseph J. Gagliardi Jr. He was also the brother of William C. Wilson and his wife Sue and uncle to 7 nieces and 1 nephew. He retired from Pitney Bowes, Enterprise, and last year he retired from Milford Transit and was well known, loved, and respected by his coworkers.
