Sgt. Wilson you were a great man i remember having you as a school resource officer at PCHS. You taught me that the stereotypes that i had from negative interactions with the police were wrong of me to categorize all officers the same just because of the negative actions of a select few. You showed me that you can have a sense of humor and that under the uniform you were just a normal man that loved his family and catching a game when you could. You will be deeply missed. You were taken away too soon. And by a unworthy person of even breathing the same air as you. It was also a great lost to our community and to the younger generation here that wont get the pleasure of experiencing having you as the resource officer or interacting with you in a public setting. Rest easy Michael god needed to call an angel home early. And my best wishes to your wife and kids
