We have gathered today under the wings of our Heavenly Father to give honor, praise and thanks to God for the life and memory of Brother Lee Archer Wilson.

"Poppa" was born March 2, 1936, in Amelia County to the late Arthur, Sr. and Christine Worsham Wilson. At an early age "Poppa" confessed, was baptized, and joined Manassa Hill Baptist Church where he remained a dedicated, loyal, and faithful member until he joined his wife, the late Louise Wilson at the Mount Level Baptist Church. He was a dedicated member of the church, usher’s and hospitality ministries. He was a faithful staff member of the The V. Y. Scott Funeral Home.
"Poppa" loved outdoors working in his yard and garden. His grandchildren and great grandchildren were the love of his life. He was fond of hats and with each outfit he had a hat to match. Oh how handsome he looked.
