Nicholas Wilson Obituary

Nicholas Cavender Wilson (Nick) of Brookeville, MD passed away on Sunday, January 14 peacefully with his wife Sharon Evans and sister-in-law Carol by his side.  Son of Vincent J. Wilson, Jr and Mary Jo Cavender Wilson, Nick was born on November 13, 1945 in Worcester MA. In addition to his loving and ever supportive wife, Sharon Evans, Nick will be missed by his sister Liza Jane Wilson Bernard and brother-in-law Thomas J. Bernard Jr. of Berwyn, PA, and nephew Thomas Maxwell Bernard of Wynnwood, PA. 

Nick lived a robust, eclectic and full life.  A longtime resident of Brookeville, MD, together with his wife, Sharon Evans, they owned and managed a beloved family business The Cricket Book and Gift Shop in Ashton, MD.  From a very young age he loved cars, how they ran and how they were designed, motorcycles too.  Not a surprise in his adult life he was a member of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club and hosted gatherings / shows of vintage Cadillacs at the family home in Brookeville.  A “chef” of his own training, he launched, managed, and cooked for his restaurant, South by Southwest, successfully for many years in Baltimore’s Fells Point.  He generously created delicious meals for family, guests and even his dogs who benefitted from Nick’s homemade meals.  A lover of music, he personally embraced the changing world of popular music. He played guitar but, as with cars, found great interest in the finer details of the instrument to create the desired performance.  For quite a few years he did advance work and support on the road for Willie Nelson and Jamie Brockett among others. All of his adult life Nick had a great appreciation for the finer execution of music and various mediums of fine art and craft as well as the history and people behind their creation.  

A memorial may be planned for springtime.
