Dan Wilson, 95, of Wolf Lake, died Thursday May 30, 2024, at home, surrounded by his family. 

He was born on May 14, 1929, in Wolf Lake, the son of Dewey G. and Mary Caroline Rendleman Wilson.

He was former president of the board at Bald Knob Cross and was a member of the Farm Bureau. 

It was important to him to document things with photography, especially Wolf Lake and the surrounding areas with historical significance. He was a great photographer and had quite the collection of cameras he had obtained over the years.
