Wilbur was a veteran having served in the U. S. Army from September, 1951-August, 1953. He was employed at Schindler Elevator and retired in February, 1993 after 37 years of service.
Wilbur was a member of American Legion Post #136 in Greenbelt, MD, the Riverdale Elks Lodge #1778 and the Collington Masonic Lodge #230 in Bowie, MD. He was a hard worker and was ready to help where he was needed. You could always count on him for a good joke. The greatest joy came with spending time with his family.
