    I’m going to really miss Wilson, like so many others. I was lucky to have worked with Wilson for about 10 years. He was smart, balanced and sensible – unflappable. Tough occasional tough spots, according to Wilson, it was all “pensionable time”.

    More than just a great colleague he was my friend, a dear friend. We laughed through my hard times. He coached me though troubles at home. He was invaluable.

    I will never forget Wilson, but I will miss him.

    He was a smart, calm and compassionate professional Ag-statistician. A solid colleague to work with. A wonderful advisor on farming practices to a city-slicker like myself. I am grateful for his help during my African consultancy assignments. My condolences to Gail, the children and the Freeman clan.

    Wilson’s knowledge of agriculture was encyclopedic; no matter how often we revisited a subject, he always had some new gem of information to add. Best of all, he liked to laugh and could be counted on to see the humour in just about any situation. The world is a sadder place for his passing.
