Matthew K. Wilson

November 13, 1956 — December 12, 2023

Ashtabula

Matthew K. Wilson, Sr., 67, passed away on December 12, 2023, at the Ashtabula County Medical Center in Ashtabula, Ohio.

He was born on November 13, 1956, in Cleveland, Ohio, the son of Edgar and Margaret (Hitchcock) Wilson.

Matt was very proud to serve his country in the United States Marine Corps.

He was the owner and operator of Wilson Construction Company for 28 years until his retirement in 2008.

He was a jack of all trades and he loved to build things, always taking extreme pride in his work and having the satisfaction knowing he did it with his own two hands. He was a great conversationalist, he never met a stranger and he could strike up a conversation with anyone.  He was also an animal lover.

On August 1, 2015, he married the love of his life, Doreen Dixon; they shared eight wonderful years of marriage together.  

He is survived by his loving family: his wife, Doreen; his children: Crystal (Kosik) Wilson, Matthew L. Wilson, Jr., Jordan Wilson, Joseph Wilson and Matthew Kevin Wilson II; three grandchildren and six great-grandchildren; his siblings: Lydia Liosa, Rebecca Wilson, Bonnie Swain, Steve (Kerry) Wilson, Daniel (Mary) Wilson, Jim Wilson, and Johnny Wilson; his step-children: Steven Mayle, Paul Mayle, John Shelott, Nicole Whysong, TYara Whysong and David Whysong.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Karen Sue Dawson.

Calling hours will be held Saturday, December 16, from 1:00-2:30 with funeral service to follow at 2:30 at the Pentecostal Church of God, 2202 Cook Road in Ashtabula, Ohio; with Pastor Kenny Roberts officiating.
