  • Darrell Roger Wilson, loving son, husband, father, grandfather, and friend passed away on April 1, 2021 at the age of 75.

    Roger was born on November 25, 1945 in Ogden, Utah. He graduated from South High School in 1964 before serving his country in Vietnam from 1966 to 1967. Upon his return from Vietnam, he married Linda Ann Talbot in the Salt Lake Temple on December 29, 1967.

    He worked at the Smelter at Kennecott Copper for several years and later retired from the US Postal Service in 2011.

    Roger loved to be outdoors camping, fishing, and hunting. He was also known around the neighborhood as the fix-it man. He knew how to fix almost anything and loved to help those around him by sharing his talents.

    Roger’s membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was something he cherished greatly. He held many callings in the church and spent a lifetime serving others.

    He is survived by his wife Linda, daughters Kim (Brian) Carter, Colette Wilson, Nanette Wilson, Lisa (Bryce) Jardine, son Jared (Keara) Wilson, and seven grandchildren. Preceded in death by his parents.

    Roger was loved by so many and will be dearly missed by his family and friends.

    With deepest sympathy, we mourn with you at the loss of Roger. He was an amazing example of Christlike love and service. If Roger knew of a family in need he would provide the service and time to fill that need. Our family was often blessed by Roger's selfless love and service. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers and thoughts are with your family. May God be with you until we meet again.

    I’m sorry to hear about the loss of Roger this morning. I have so many wonderful memories of working with him for many years at the Postal Service. I can still remember his laugh... And him saying “Well.....” He will be missed, but his memory will live on... God Bless You All...

We miss the Wilson Family being our neighbors, I didn't know how good we had it, till now the your family is gone from our neighborhood. The Lovato Family.

    Roger was the greatest neighbor I have ever had. Seeing the pure kindness, compassion, and charity from him is something I will truly cherish. He truly followed the Savior’s example and went about doing good. My prayers are with the Wilson family at this time. May the Lord continue to bless you as Roger has been asked to fulfill a different assignment.

    I remember Brother Wilson well. He was such a kind man, who I looked up to as a young woman. I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers will with be with your family.

    Dear Wilson Family, I remember brother Wilson’s smile. His wave and hello as you walked passed his house. He was always in the backyard working on something or in the front yard watering the garden. He was a kind soul and so incredibly tall. I never grew much so he was always taller to me but maybe that was his striking personality? He was a special part of our neighbourhood and ward. He will be very missed. My heart goes out to all of his family during this hard time. Kaylynn Farley

    We are so sorry to hear of Roger's passing. We all know he is in a better place. I know you will miss him so very much. Roger was a wonderful person. He was so helpfull after Bob was shot. He helped when we had the new shower put in and anything I need done (we had started it before Bob was shot). He was a very helpful, wonderful neighbor. Such a very good man and good example of God's love for everyone. Best wishes to all of your family. Bob and Colene

    There are many people who come into our lives. Then there are those who make a lasting impact. Roger is one of those people. I'm a better person for knowing Roger. He taught me so many great lessons about life and living the Gospel. His ability to look towards the future instead of focusing only on the present is a trait I admire so much. It's fitting that the last time I saw Roger was at Home Depot. It was one of many times I ran into him there. God be with you til we meet again.

    Dear Wilson Family, Our deepest sympathies are sent to each of you with a great big hug! Knowing that he will be watching over you, but in from a different place. We know how much he loved each of you. He loved the Lord, he loved his neighbors and friends. He was a kind man, a good neighbor, friend, and beloved of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. May your memories be sweet and ever lasting. All our love and sympathy, Susan and Joe B
