Obituary for William Joseph Wilson, Jr.

William (Billy) J. Wilson passed away Thursday, May 9th and is now 10 under par at Augusta National. Billy distinguished himself in his teens in major Sandhills area golf tournaments. He was also a member of the Sandhills Community College and Campbell University golf teams. Many remember him winning two consecutive Moore County Amateur Championships. A competitor once said to Billy, “A fellow who hits the ball as long as you, should be outlawed on a golf course.” He later turned professional, playing the Florida mini tour circuit. He went on to become a PGA teaching pro and worked for Mizuno for many years.

His friends and family will remember Billy as one of the nicest men they have ever known. His family will miss his smile and his witty since of humor. Billy was loved by his wife Dee, countless family and friends and his faithful dog Bogey. Billy, you are so loved!

Celebration of Billy’s life will be held early next week at The Southern Pines Golf Club. Details will be posted on the Boles Funeral Home website.

The family request that in lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Solutions for Animals in Billy’s memory at PO Box 2062 Southern Pines, NC 28388.

Services entrusted to Boles Funeral Home of Southern Pines.
