John “Jack” Joseph Wilson, 82 years young, passed away at home on May 27, 2015 of pulmonary fibrosis, surrounded by his family. He leaves his wife of 25 years, Valerie Baier and his four sons: Peter and his wife Katie of Sudbury; David, of Ayer; John, of Groton; and Daniel and his wife Jennifer of Westford. In addition, he leaves six step children: Karen Saisi; Linda Stinson and her partner Cindy; Donna Anastasi and her husband Tom; Laurie Saisi-Greene; Steven Saisi and his wife Hinda; and Ellen Bellini and her husband Jon. He is survived by 21 loving grandchildren. He was the beloved brother of Robert Wilson and Ellen Pressler, both deceased.
Born in North Cambridge in 1932, he lived on Montgomery Avenue. He moved to Carlisle in 1970 and became a devout worshiper at Saint Irene’s Parish. Jack worked for the Shawmut Bank in Boston as a supervisor in the courier and procurement department until he retired after 32 years.
Jack was always quick of wit and never at a loss of a great anecdote to share. He was a dedicated husband, parent, and grandfather who always put his family first. A more supportive parent could not be found. He will be deeply missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Lung Association. A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, June 6th at 11 a.m. at St. Irene’s Church, 181 East Street in Carlisle. A luncheon will be served after the mass in the church hall.
