Tom (Tommy) Wilson 36, died unexpectedly at his Beaver Road home in Saegertown on July 14, having lost his struggle with bipolar disorder. He was the beloved son of Tom and Libby Wilson.

I know how you feel and feel your pain along with you. I have bi-polar disorder in my immediate family and am very familiar with NAMI. I will be making a donation to NAMI in honor of your son in hopes that one day bi polar and other mental illnesses can be eliminated. My heart breaks for you and your family and I believe that now Tommy is at peace in a wonderful place and I hope you know that this was not your fault in any way. Love to all of your family.

Having went to high school with Tom, I knew him very well and always considered him a close friend. I’ll always remember that he always had a friendly hello to say to anyone and everyone.

To the family please accept my deepest condolences on your loss.

I think what I will always remember most about Tom is his constant, kind consideration for others and his great sense of humor. He was like a brother to me, but also a great friend and a true Cussewago boy. The number of people that have reached out to me to express their sorrow is a powerful testament to how many people his life impacted. I miss him terribly and will never forget his easy smile and quick wit. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tommy and the entire Wilson family.

Tommy took me on my first(and only) pheasant hunt. After waking him up(not easy!) he got me 3 birds(easy-peasy). Always had a great smile on his face.

Rubber band wars, water balloon fights, pinochle marathons, game night hilarity, my first and only snipe hunt, enough tomfoolery, shenanigans and hijinks to annoy even Aunt Rose: Thanks for a million great memories Cousin.
