    I knew Wilbur a long time. He was a good friend to my late husband Sam Singleton. They went to school together and in later years worked together on survey and construction projects. Thru Sam I became Wilbur’s friend. I have many happy and fun memories of Wilbur. He enjoyed people and fun times. Sending prayers for peace and comfort to his family and friends.
