Arthur Gene Wilson, 67, Sturgis, joined our Heavenly Father June 25, 2008, at home with his family after waging a courageous battle against lung cancer.
Arthur was born on November 26, 1941, on his parents' farm, south of Ree Heights, SD, to James and Corlena (Van Den Berg) Wilson. The family left the farm when he was six years old, but he spent time helping on his uncle, Harry Wilson, and great-uncle, Arie DeGest, farms.
He enlisted in the US Navy on March 28, 1961. He graduated with honors with I. C. Electricians, Class A, on October 6, 1961. He served on the Aircraft Carrier, USS Forrestal. He received his honorable discharge on July 15, 1964.
Arthur was united in marriage to Bonnie Kopecky on July 31, 1965, and to this union, five children were born.
He began his working career in 1955 at the local grocery store as a butcher's helper. His working experiences took him to Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. In 1974, they purchased the Phillip processing plant. In 1977, he worked as an Electrical Engineer at Wyodak in Gillette, WY. In 1980, they owned and operated a logging business. After being injured in a logging accident in 1981, the family then started the S & W Bait business in 1983, which at the same time, they owned and operated a home for the elderly where he enjoyed cooking the meals.
After retiring from the Bait business in 2000, he enjoyed gardening, cooking meals, and baking for his family and friends and spending time with his dogs.
During his lifetime, he enjoyed boxing, where as a teenager, he won the honor of the most promising boxer and two years in a row, won the Golden Gloves Championship. He also enjoyed breaking horses, raccoon hunting, and hunting and fishing with his family, friends, and many of his nieces and nephews.
During the recovery period of the Rapid City flood, he and his dogs helped to recover lost loved ones for many families. His efforts were greatly appreciated and rewarded by the City of Rapid City.

Land petitions were dated 17 Aug 1795, 16 May 1 1796, 10 Feb 1797. On 11 Apr 1797 John
Hainer entered a joint petition with Jacob Tederick wherein they describe themselves as farmers
at Twelve Mile Creek and stated that John Hainer had been a substantial farmer on the North
River and had lost considerable property for his allegiance to the Crown. One OC granted 100
acres on 22 Apr 1797, bringing his total to 350 acres. An attached affidavit credits the petitioners
with having been at Twelve Mile Creek since the beginning of Settlement (at St. Catharines), and
they were awarded 200 acres each “in consequence of their very respectable characters”. See the
main portion of this book for descendants of John Hainer, outlined below:
