Jefferey Thomas Wilson, 61, of Jacksonville, Arkansas passed away January 6th, 2023 to be welcomed into heaven with loving arms by his Mom and Dad Jim & Mary Wilson. Jeff, or as most called him “Bodeine” was born in Garden Grove California November 23rd, 1961.
Jeff lived life to the fullest, and we mean the fullest. His passions were sneaking across Military Road and fishing for monster bass. Or in California he would get a new bike from “Santa” and have it taken apart in a day or two. Jeff loved to tinker. It was really funny visiting with Jeff in his shop asking him about this or that, maybe a generator or a weed eater. Does that run Bodeine? What about this one Jeff? His answer – ‘awe that one needs this or that one needs that’. He loved tinkering as he loved each and everyone of his family members, he loved all of us with a passion!!! To have known Jeff was to have loved Jeff.
Jefferey leaves behind his older brothers Jimmy Wilson (Sue) & Tony Placzkowski (Vivian) and his youngest brother Tim Wilson (Samantha). Jeff also leaves behind his one and only sister that he loved dearly Lisa Barber and her husband Ron. Jeff’s tinkering buddy…
Uncle Jeff leaves behind his nieces and nephews Tiffany Wilson, Justin Haycook, Jacob & Chandler Wilson & Olivia German and many, many other family members, and friends.
Jeff is preceded in death by his parents Mary and Jim Wilson along with his Nephew Mel Booth Jr.
