To The Abbott Library Community:

It is with great sadness that I inform the Abbott Library community of the passing of John Wilson on July 5, 2017.

John was a passionate and devoted supporter of our library. He was instrumental in raising the private funds to construct the new library building and continued to be involved with the maintenance and enhancement of the library at its new site. John would finish one task and move on to the next with his “sure, we’ll get it done” positive attitude.

John always entered the library with a smile which showed his love and passion for the new library; his energy and enthusiasm were contagious.

John will be greatly missed by the Trustees, the Abbott Library Foundation, the Friends of the Abbott Library and the Abbott Library Staff.

Our thoughts and best wishes are with his wife, Jeanne, and their family. Please follow this link for a full account of the truly remarkable life of John Wilson.

Terri Jillson White, Chair
Abbott Library Trustees
