John T. Wilson
January 26, 1957 - May 29, 2020

John T. Wilson, affectionately known as Frog, 63, passed away on May 29, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. Born in Tampa, he grew up in Odessa on lake Hiawatha. He graduated Leto High School in 1975 and joined the Air Force, serving our country for 2 years. He was an avid fisherman, who loved fishing and being on the water. Always with a joke at hand, he had a gift to tell jokes that made everyone around him laugh, never meeting a stranger. His proudest accomplishment was his daughter Jana, with his dream to one day walk her down the aisle, which he was able to do. His love for her and his family was endless. He resided in the Titusville area for over 30 years where his friends were considered family. He worked for AECOM for 17 years building many relationships with his co-workers that impacted his life. The family appreciates all of the love and support from his friends and co-workers and are grateful for everything they did to help him during his most difficult times. He is survived by his parents; Donald and Virginia Wilson; sister Beverly Wilson Kane and spouse Ann Wenner; brother Lee Wilson and spouse Renee Wilson; daughter Jana Wilson Clark and son-in-law Jason Clark; grandchildren Juliana, Jason and Natalia. There will be a service at Unity Church in Tampa, date to be announced. A celebration of life will follow in Cocoa, date to be announced. In lieu of flowers please make any donations to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

    I am going to miss my friend. I met Frog on my first day at AECOM and we immediately became great friends, I don’t really know why since I’m so hard to get along with. Frog just had “that way” about him. Even when he ended up reporting to me and I had to make the painful decision to furlough him during the Great Recession of 2008, we managed to remain great friends and he was the first person that I was able to call back to work. It was his work ethic, knowledge, and unique personality that made him such a valuable friend and employee.

    I am so glad that in the end he was surrounded by his family. He loved them very much and never stopped talking about them, especially his daughter and granddaughter. He was very proud of them.

    Good Bye Froggie-Frog (his rap name) and hope you can do some fishing with Ken in heaven (if they allow that there).

    Well, John was the best friend a girl could ever have. One of my Fondest Memories is John taking me out on his big boat. I realized he was catching live bait 2 catch live fish. I thought you used worms LOL so I was throwing the live bait back in the water. What a laugh we had. And for many years to come on this subject. So many great memories. Thank you John. You have taken a piece of my heart to heaven. As I have kept a piece of your heart here with me. I will miss you greatly. You were my blanket of Courage..

    My condolences to Jana, Mr and Mrs Wilson, Bev, Lee as well as the rest of the Wilson family..

    I married John’s cousin Beth Howell in 1974. The Wilson family accepted me as family. The Massey girls and families were a very loving family. John also had the family trait of a loving, caring family member. When his cousin and I divorced, he continued to love me as family. He continued to call me “cuz”. And that is true of his whole family. We both shared the joy of fishing. John, you will always be remembered for the many lives you brightened. Now you have eternal peace. Where the fish are always biting!! My deepest condolences to the family for your loss.

    Dear Frog,
    Ever since we met we have had a special friendship. You my friend are “Finer than a Frogs Hair” so glad we were able to spend some time together over the past few months, and so grateful to have rung in the New Year with you, “No matter the trials, may we keep the faith” 2 Timothy 4: 6-8. You fought the Good Fight my Froggy Friend. BTW my sunglasses broke. Love you

    Getting to know Frog was one of the highlights of our visits to Cocoa, it won’t be the same without him. Always looked forward to his wit and humor, he was part of our extended west coast family. Lots of good times were shared with him and we’ll always remember to set the hook. We miss you Frog and we’ll keep you in our thoughts and prayers, and toast your memory ever chance we can. Fish on my friend!

    Life at AECOM won’t be the same without the Frogger. He was a very nice guy and always had a funny joke to tell! He was reliable and always appreciated the work. I’ll miss him. He is hopping around in a better place now and still telling jokes. My condolences to his family. RIP buddy.

    Remembering all the fun, good times, and laughs that we shared together at Earth Tech will most certainly help me in these most difficult of times. Frog man, I will always feel mighty proud to have been your friend. Hopefully, you are at the helm of a nice pleasure cruiser in calm waters somewhere just wetting a line without a care in the world. Thanks for being such a good friend buddy!
