Wilbur was born in the old City of Allegheny, now a part of Pittsburgh. During World War I, he served as an Army private in the Blue Ridge Mountain Division (possibly both the 317th and 320th Infantry, 80th Division). Most soldiers in his unit came from West Virginia, but a few hailed from Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Wilbur trained at Camp Lee, Virginia.
During battle, Wilbur survived a mustard gas attack even though another soldier, in a panic, grabbed the mask hanging around Wilbur's neck. His service record was probably lost in a fire that claimed most military records in 1973, but he wrote "Belleau Woods" on his copy of A History of the 317th Infantry, by Lt. Edley Craighill. In this book, the passage about Belleau Woods, July 1918, mentions the destructive power of gas.
After the war, Wilbur found work in New Brighton, Pennsylvania, where he met Grace Louise Parke. They married in 1925, moved into a house on Venture Street on the North Side of Pittsburgh, and had two children. Wilbur worked as an accountant for most of his career. He was a skilled gardener, a devoted churchman, and a steady and good-humored influence on everyone who was blessed to know him.
