Raymond Allen Wilson was born October 31, 1950, in Bartlesville, Oklahoma to Floyd Kaylor and Clara Ellen (Caviness) Wilson.  He received his education from several different schools, including some in Texas, and later Yale, Oklahoma.  He also helped his family at home at a young age. 
 
Allen's career path was a reflection of his strong work ethic. Starting at a mobile home dealership, he later transitioned to Anchor Stone before ultimately becoming a truck driver. His dedication to providing for his family shone through in every role he undertook. Even after retirement, Allen found joy in staying active and caring for his loved ones.

In his personal life, Allen cherished the simple joys and always placed his family at the forefront. His grandchildren held a special place in his heart, becoming his top priority. Known for his friendly demeanor and ability to strike up conversations with anyone, Allen had a way of making people feel welcome and valued. While he could be mischievous at times, his straightforward nature endeared him to those around him.

Beyond work and family, Allen found solace in trading cars and seeking out the perfect deal. He enjoyed enhancing his purchases through tinkering, often involving his sons in the process. His passion for cars was not just about the vehicles themselves but also the connections and experiences that came with them.

Allen was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd and Clara Wilson, sister Teresa Wilson, and son-in-law Mike Kwiatkowski. He is survived by his beloved wife Donna Wilson; children Johnny Wilson and wife Kristal, Christina Kwiatkowski, Sheila Jessee, Randy Wilson and wife Candace, and Sarah Wilson; grandchildren Tyler Wilson, Taylor Chisum, Jacob Kwiatkowski, Joey Bailey, Brodie Wilson, Laynie Warren, Haylie Wilson, Ethan Kwiatkowski, BraeLynn Warren, Michael Wilson, Claire Jessee, and Savannah Jessee; as well as brothers Floyd Leroy Wilson and Sam Wilson.
