James Dallas Wilson, 71, passed away peacefully at Baptist Hospital in Jackson on Saturday, March 30, 2019. Born October 28, 1947 in Montevista, he was the son of the late Ovis R. Wilson and the late Betty Slaughter Fleming. He was a member of Shiloh Baptist Church, and was retired after working many years as a self-employed painter. A true outdoorsman, James loved to either be in the woods deer hunting, or fishing on the Tallahatchie River. He also spent a lot of time trapping. James was an avid fan of his Ole Miss Rebels. Football and baseball were his favorites, but he was red and blue all the way.
