Harry Allen Wilson Jr. MOORESVILLE Lifelong auto racing enthusiast Harry Allen Wilson Jr., 76, received his final checkered flag Tuesday, May 21, 2019. He was born Jan. 17, 1943 in Paris, Ill., the son of Harry and Emily Louise Wilson. Wilson was united in marriage to Audrey Moorefield, May 24, 1969. He proudly served his country in the Army National Guard from 1960 to 1985. He retired from the Army, and AT&T, where he served as a systems technician. Next to his love of family and country, Wilson's love for automobile racing was a lifelong passion. When not spectating, through the years he could be found drag racing, holding various pit crew positions, race directing for Quarter Midgets of America, and holding many a wrench over a race car. In his retirement, Wilson drove a truck and taught basic auto mechanics at Wilkes Community College in Wilkesboro. Wilson will be greatly missed by his wife, Audrey; sons, Mike (Charlotte) Wilson of Orlando, Fla., Jimmy (April) Wilson of Mooresville; grandchildren, Stephen Wilson, Angela (Isaiah) Stewart; and great-grandchild, Matthew Stewart. He is further survived by his poodle, Coco; and his lounging buddy, Jasper (chihuahua), and many grandpets. Wilson was preceded in death by his parents, and many beloved pets throughout the years. Services are incomplete at this time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his honor to Carolina Caring at www.carolinacaring.org. Cavin-Cook Funeral Home and Crematory of Mooresville is serving the Wilson family. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.cavin-cook.com.
