Peter G. Wilson of Akron OH, and former head of Old Trail School, passed away on September 3, 2021, his 85th birthday. He was born in Toronto, Canada, the son of the late Jack G. Wilson and Sally Palmer Wilson.
He immigrated to the U.S. in 1942 with his name attached to his mother's passport. He became an American citizen in 1955 and proudly voted in every election since.
After receiving his B.S. and M.S. from the University of Michigan, he began his lifelong career path as an independent school educator and administrator. Even after he retired, he became a consultant for the Independent Schools Association of the Central States. Peter would have told you that he was fortunate in that he truly enjoyed every day of his working career, even those that were challenging.
He cherished his family and friends and enjoyed sharing his passions for photography, sailing, volunteering, reading, learning, and supervising Lois' gardening projects.
Peter is survived by his wife, Lois G. Wilson; sons Craig G. (Jennifer) Wilson, Mark L. Wilson; daughter, Anne L. (Chris) Ramsey; sister, Penny (Dan) Phares; grandchildren, Nicholas, Peter, Ethan, Zachary, Beth, Laina, and Celia.
A celebration of Peter's life will take place at 11:00 on Saturday, October 9, 2021, at Old Trail School, 2315 Ira Road, Bath. Reception to follow.
Peter's family suggests that memorial gifts be made to Old Trail School or to the CVNP Conservancy, both places that he loved.
