Edgar Wilson "Big Daddy" Nutt, 91
Wilson Nutt re-joined his heavenly father Sunday, September 22, 2013 at Colonial Nursing Center in Lindale, Texas.
Services to celebrate a life well lived will be held at 10am Saturday September 28, 2013 at Tyler Memorial Funeral Home in Tyler, Texas. Visitation will be held Friday September 27, 2013 from 6pm-8pm at the same location.
His family would ask that he be remembered for his unsinkable good nature, ability to always find the funny in life, and his unfaltering integrity. He was humor, fun, temper and cleverness dressed up in a pair of threadbare red coveralls. He will be sorely missed.
Wilson was born July 29, 1922 in Corsicana, Texas to Bufford Hunter Nutt and Gary Belle Wilson Nutt. He served his country in World War II by joining the Coast Guard. In May of 1943 he married the love of his life, Catherine Thompson, and they resided in Corsicana until 1949 when they moved permanently to Tyler, Texas. They were blessed with two children, Cathy Ann and Donald Hunter.
Wilson was involved in the building of the Kelly Springfield plant in 1962 and he remained with the company as a maintenance electrician for the rest of his career, retiring in 1987. He enjoyed his retirement by traveling with the Good Sam Club, watching old westerns, singing at church and regaling his grandchildren with many fantastical tall tales.
He was a lifetime member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
He and his family were longtime members at Wesley Methodist Church but in later years, Pleasant Retreat Methodist Church became Wilson's spiritual home.
He is survived by his spouse of 70 years, Catherine Nutt of Tyler, daughter and son-in-law, Cathy and Tommy Darden of Lindale, his son, Don Nutt of Tyler, his grandchildren, Lisa and Brian Baker of Arlington, Shaun and Roger Pigsley of Sugarland, Jeff and Dawn Darden of Lindale, Dax Nutt of Tyler, Jade and Heath Ginn of Lindale, and Clayton Nutt of Tyler and his ten great grandchildren.
