On Wednesday, March 27, 2019, God whispered, “Peace Be Thine” and extended his hand of mercy to Archie Wilson and gently called him from labor to reward. Born on March 8, 1930 in Assawoman, Virginia, he was the son of the late Lina Mae Wilson and James Douglas, Sr. He was 89 years old.

Archie received his education in the public schools of Accomack County. He was baptized at Jerusalem Baptist Church and later transferred his membership to First Baptist Church in Mappsville, VA where he served as a Willing Worker and an Usher. He truly loved the Lord and read his scriptures daily.

He was employed by Eastern Shore Tractor Company and later by Johnny Conquest Farms. Archie loved baseball, and was a member of one of the first local African American organized baseball teams in the area.

Archie was a jack of many trades. A mechanic at heart, he could often be found “fixing” his cars, trucks, lawnmowers or anything with a motor. In his younger years, he was also known for playing the guitar. One of his favorite hobbies was fishing and owned his own boat! In his later years, he developed a love for crafting and was well-known for his creative gifts. Anything you wanted, Archie could make it. Anything that was broke, Archie could fix it!

His love for his family was endless. He would always inquire about the welfare and health of everyone. His quick wit and humor was like none other. He will be greatly missed.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his daughter Geraldine; three brothers, James Douglas, Jr., Preston Wilson and William Wilson; five sisters Beulah Lewis, Helen Harmon, Mildred Dennis, Elizabeth Douglas, and Evelyn Douglas.

He leaves to cherish his memory his daughters Linda (Grant) Wallop of Nelsonia, VA; and Deborah (George) Crippen, also of Nelsonia, VA; five grandchildren – Robert Sanders, Alicia (Robert) Uzzle , Antonio (Rachel) Wallop, Troy Strand and Kenya Strand; twelve great-grandchildren; five great-great grandchildren; one brother Sherwood Wilson of Newark, DE; two sisters, Ruth Fisher of Morristown, NJ and Margaret Thompson of Philadelphia, PA; sisters-in-law Bertha Wilson and Margie Wilson; several nieces and nephews, cousins and friends.
