Obituary for Philip Wilson

Philip “Phil” R. Wilson, 68
Called to our Heavenly home August 13, 2019 from Hayden, Idaho
Son of Forest Ennals Wilson and Garnette Merle Marshall, grew up in Wilmington, Ohio. Phil graduated from Wilmington High School, educated through the college of life, and obtained his teaching certificate through the University of Idaho.
Phil met his best friend and jewel, SuZanne Lynn Harris in Santa Barbara, CA and they were married April 22, 1979 in Coeur d’Alene, ID.
Phil was the owner and operator of Wiltrek Automotive with his wife at his side for many years. He later included a teardrop trailer manufacturing business called Hunter Outdoor Products. When closer to retirement, Phil blessed the inland Northwest youth community as an instructor at the newly opened Kootenai Technical Education Campus (KTEC) in the art of mechanics.
Phil was a son, brother, father, uncle, grandfather, Master Mechanic, Teacher, Role Model and Friend to many in the community and across the nation. Phil possessed a supernatural talent to connect in a special way with both humans and machines.
Phil enjoyed making things function, hand on projects…he loved seeing things run - especially motorcycles! Phil was an avid gardener. His specialties were his favorites of asparagus and cherries from the tree he nurtured as a sapling.
Phil was a proud member of the American Motorcycle Club (AMA) and the Iron Butt Motorcycle club – 1,000 or more miles in 24 hours on his motorcycle. Phil easily put 64,000+ miles on his Suzuki Bandit a year. Phil enjoyed taking his time in investing in his family, his whole body, heart and spirit. Phil’s most important accomplishment in his life was leading his wife, SuZanne, to find our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Phil is survived by his wife of 40 years, SuZanne; children, Nicole and Philip; grandchildren, Meghan, Courtney, Ryan, Christiana and Nicholas.; brothers, Mike and Tim; sisters, Hope and Rhoda; numerous nieces and nephews and many more family members too numerous to count but were all important to him.
A funeral service for Phil will be held Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 11:00AM at Yates Funeral Home, Hayden Chapel, 373 East Hayden Ave, Hayden, Idaho 83835
A graveside will follow the funeral at Coeur d'Alene Memorial Gardens, 7315 Govt. Way, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho 83815 With a reception afterwards back at Yates Funeral Chapel in Hayden.
