Rochester, NY, November 14,2000
Our prayers and thoughts go out to the family of Jim Wilson, a former Franciscan, who died on 11/14/2000. Jim was predeceased by his wife Arlene who died in 1998. He is survived by his daughters, Carla Loukota and Karen, as well as his brother John, and sister-in-law Mary Wilson.
Jim's funeral service was conducted by his closest friend Tom Knapp, a classmate who worked with Jim as a missionary in Bolivia, former Franciscans and diocesan priests remembered Jim as a true renaissance man who fully embodied the prayer of St. Francis.
Jim will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
