Doc was not only a good chiropractor but a good friend. He was my wife, Anita’s chiropractor for most of the 52 years. To the end she would say she would feel better if she could just see Doc. He will be missed.
I started going to Doc Wilson in 1969 after a fall while I was pregnant with my first child. Wanda was my sorority sister and she suggested LeRoy could help me. She was so right. Good friends thru the years. He will truly be missed.

We visited with LeRoy often. He drove his classic Ford Ranger to Springfield and then the fun began; we mostly reminisced about the good old days. The visit was always the bright spot of the day. He was not only a good friend and in-law but a “brother”. Oh, how he will be missed!
Dr. Wilson was my chiropractor for 45 years, He was more than a chiropractor he was a friend. Dr Wilson loved the Lord and it showed, He is finally with his beloved Wanda
and we will see him in heaven one day. He will be missed here on Earth,
Learned many things from you, Doc. I didn’t tell you I cared/loved you near enough, but I did. You knew me a lot more than I knew myself. I really wanted to get things right. Thanks for being there, when you were.
So sorry to hear of Doc’s passing. My prayers are with your family.
