David Paul “Dave” Wilson, 65, died April 13, 2015, at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center. He was born Dec. 10, 1949, in Hutchinson, to Merle and Rosemary (Cyphert) Wilson.
He was a respected craftsman and former concrete foreman. Dave was a remarkable man full of knowledge, who had a passion for woodworking and an art for concrete finishing.
