Brian Timothy Wilson, 40, of Marblehead passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 14.
Brian was a devoted husband to Jessica Wilson, a loving father to his two beautiful daughters, Taylor and Olivia; and a loyal friend to those he chose to embrace.
Brian grew up in Marblehead and attended the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester. After spending many years in Boston, Detroit, and Columbus, he eventually returned to raise his family in his beloved seaside hometown.
An entrepreneur, Brian started his career in real estate while still attending college. Leveraging his experience in this industry, he went off on his own, launching a successful career. He had a passion for learning and was never behind on current events or the most recent documentary.
Brian was a kid at heart. He loved tinkering with everything, including his vehicles, tech, and toys. His meals consisted of ice cream, candy, and anything involving breakfast. An avid skier, boater, and cyclist, Brian felt most content on the water, skiing at Stowe, and going FAST. He was cool; he was spontaneous, fun and loved a good risk.
Brian’s youthful persona made him the best father. He spent as much time as possible taking his daughters on adventures through the streets and harbors of Marblehead and Boston. He was their partner in crime, and real-life superhero.
Brian worked hard and loved hard. His legacy will live on through his numerous accomplishments, family and many friends, his impact within the community, and most notably, through his little girls.
He leaves behind his wife, Jessica Wilson; daughters, Taylor and Olivia; his mother, Janice Wilson; and brother, Todd Wilson. He was preceded in death by his father, Jim Wilson.
A celebration of Brian’s life was held on Friday, Sept. 23 at the Corinthian Yacht Club. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a memorial scholarship fund at Marblehead High School being set up in honor of Brian Wilson.
