Percy Mcgee Willson

Percy McGee Willson passed away peacefully on August 28, 2021 at the age of 87 in Bryan, Texas following a brief illness. Percy was the youngest of six children, born on November 22, 1933 to Clarence and Ella (Perry) Willson. He was raised on the family farm near Brookesmith (Brown County), Texas. He graduated from Brookesmith High School in 1952.

Percy worked in the grain industry for over 35 years, predominantly in the Texas Panhandle region. He spent most of those years with Friona Industries as manager of the Black Grain Company. He had fond memories of his co-workers and farmer friends and some wonderful stories about the deals he made purchasing wheat and corn as feed for the beef cattle industry. He enjoyed playing dominoes, and had funny, and probably over exaggerated, tales about his experiences with the game.

Following his retirement in 1996, Percy relocated to Wichita Falls, Texas where he, along with his brother Tommy, was actively involved in the restoration of several antique tractors. His prize project was a 1951 WD Allis Chalmers tractor, originally owned by his father, which Percy located and refurbished to new condition, proudly displaying at several “Gathering of the Orange” and other tractor shows across the country. As a side job, Percy made several road trips around the USA; he was employed as a driver, responsible for returning repossessed cars and trucks to used car dealerships. Percy became legally blind, and in 2016 made his home at an assisted living facility in Wichita Falls. Here he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior; he leaves behind many good friends at his former residence.

Percy was preceded in death by his parents; sisters Sarah Wells and Nina Carr, and brothers Glynn, Robert and Tommy.

Percy is survived by his two daughters, Tania Wolf and husband Kenneth, of Bedias, Texas; Reecie Hale and husband Tim of St. Joseph, Missouri; also three grandsons, Bert Hale of Denver, Colorado; Brett Hale of St. Joseph, Missouri, and Trace Wolf of Palestine, Texas, and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

A private, family memorial service is planned at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions in his honor to the Friona Fire Department, P.O. Box 501, Friona, TX 79035.

Madisonville Funeral Home, Madisonville, Texas is entrusted with arrangements. .
