Kenneth E. Wilson, age 83, of Summerfield, Ohio, died Friday, December 13, 2019, at his home. He was born August 2, 1936, in Senecaville, son of the late Earl and Frances Devine Wilson. He was a graduate of Liberty Union High School in Baltimore, Ohio, and proudly served his country and retired from the United States Coast Guard. He farmed and sold farm equipment for Townsend Sales, from which he retired. He was a huge supporter of the local 4-H.
