Dear Don & Karyn,

I did not know your dad personally, but know the evidence of his love and character through the two of you and from my dad, John Vernon. It is a JOY to know with certainty that Dr. John Wilton is with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ today.

I know your dad will be greatly missed, and our prayers are with you and your family.

Much love,
Ranie Good

Dr. Don Wilton and family I remember your Dad when I worked at The Cove Gate house in Asheville. He stopped in and talked with me and how blessed I was to spend some time with him. I am so glad that our paths crossed in life even though it was just briefly. He was and is a godly man. I am looking forward to seeing your Dad again in the soon coming events of The Lord's return. Please be

I did not know John, but knowing Murray gives me a good account of the woks of John Wilton. We affect everyone eventually by our actions now. Knowing Murray tells me that he was loved, discaplined, and taught by a strong father. I know he will be missed, but only for a short time because we will all be together in a much better place soon, whether a short or long time is the Lord's to choose. May we use

We only had the opportunity to hear John preach once at the Fellowship in Huntsville. The thing that stands out about that memory is John's love of the Word! Excellent preaching. One more thing though that touched me deeply that I remember, was the look of love and admiration from Murray to his father and the look of Love and respect from Father to son. The eyes tell it all, and there was abounding love. God blessed them and through them, God blessed us.

A very good friend & mentor was called to be with the Lord Saturday.
Greatly going to miss John. LOVED him & his sweet wife Rhodabelle. Prayers lifted up for our sister in Christ & her dear family.
It's a bittersweet time. Jesus was the absolute center of his life and all he wanted to talk about. His love for Christ was contagious. A man who was honest about himself and always wished he could have done more for Him. That love
