Herman Douglas Wilson

January 4, 1952 — September 12, 2023

Herman Douglas Wilson, “Doug”, age 71 of Moorefield, WV departed this life on September 12, 2023. Born on January 4, 1952, in Petersburg, WV, he was a son of Dorothy Lee (Vetter) Sherman (husband Tude) of Moorefield, WV and the late James Herman Wilson. A brother, Mark Wilson also preceded him in death.

Surviving in addition to his mother are his children, Douglas “Ryan” (Aly) Wilson of Baker, WV and DeAnna Marie Wilson (Jeff) of Moorefield, WV; seven grandchildren, Blake, Lee, Cayleigh, Harper, Seth, Shane and Holly; two sisters, Debbie Wilson (Gale) of Harrisonburg, VA and Pam (Dane) Schell of Stephens City, VA; a brother, Brodell Wilson of Wardensville, WV; numerous nieces and nephews and a life-long friend, Randy Wilson.

Doug often claimed he was from “Tuff” holler, a moderately private person who liked the simple things in life. A carpenter by trade as well as a handyman, he could do anything he set his mind to do. An avid outdoorsman, he could often be found riding his side by side or scouting the woods for fresh deer sign. An excellent shot, he often joked that he could split the hair on a gnat’s ass at 400 yards. He shared his love of hunting with his children and taught them how to hunt and enjoy the outdoors as much as he did.

A Service of Remembrance will be held from 6 - 9 PM, Friday, September 22, 2023 at the Walnut Grove Church of the Brethren with Pastor D. J. Taylor officiant.
