Wilson J. Morales Death, Obituary – Wilson J. Morales, 63 years old, from Ashtabula, Ohio, was found to have unexpectedly gone away on Friday, June 2, 2023 at the Ashtabula County Medical Center. His mother, Barbara A. (nee: Sylvester), and his father, Wilson Morales, welcomed him into the world on December 30, 1959 in Cleveland, Ohio. Early on in his education, Wilson spent his time at Saint Boniface Catholic School.
Later, he went on to receive his diploma from Max Hayes Vocational School, where he studied auto body. Over the course of his career, he has held positions with Tartan Yacht and, more recently, Marine Manufacturing in Painesville. At both of these companies, he has been recognized as a valuable employee, and he is especially proud of the fact that he was the very first recipient of the Gold Shoe award at Marine Manufacturing.
Wilson was extremely gifted in a wide variety of areas. He was an expert grill master, and his family cherished the delicious meals that he made for them, which were always seasoned to the ideal degree. He had an aptitude for mechanics and was extremely precise when it came to maintaining his fleet of automobiles.
Wilson goes above and beyond to make unforgettable experiences for his family. Some of them include taking his grandson to Memphis Kiddie Park, going on boating trips to go fishing, and spending the day at Cedar Point and the Cleveland Zoo. His love for his girls will never be forgotten; he treasured them and was proud of the women they became. His love for his daughters will never be forgotten.
Wilson treasured the presence and company of his future wife, Carole, as much as he could because the two of them enjoyed doing everything together. He delighted in making other people laugh, especially with cheesy dad jokes. It would be an understatement to say that Wilson had a soft heart for animals; he truly did.
During the course of his life, he had a variety of pets in his home, including parakeets, tropical fish, mice, doves, and even a rooster that he named Sapphire. In more recent times, he has taken pleasure in the company of canines and felines, particularly his dog Odie and his “Pretty Kitty” Lucy.
When he did have a taste for anything sweet, though, his favorites were saltwater taffy, mint chocolate chip ice cream, and oatmeal crème pies. He wasn’t a big fan of sweets in general. Wilson was a fan of eating at Texas Roadhouse, particularly the peanuts they served as an appetizer while he was waiting.
Painting, tending to plants, and working in his gardens were some of his favorite pastimes of his. Wilson had a lot of fun demonstrating his enthusiasm for rock music to his friends and neighbors by playing albums on his record player at an audible volume. Rush, Black Sabbath, and Deep Purple were some of his all-time favorite bands and musicians.
Watching science fiction programs like Star Trek and Lost in Space was one of his favorite things to do in his spare time. Wilson was a devoted follower of both the Cleveland Browns and the Cleveland Indians, and he routinely attended and watched games featuring both teams.
His daughters Frances (Matthew) Laveck and Sunnie Morales, as well as his fiancée Carole Lesler, grandson Ezra Laveck, bonus daughter Elizabeth Lesler, and siblings Joanne (Bob) Biondich, Laura Morales, Lynne Morales, and Gale Morales, as well as one niece and many nephews, will mourn him deeply.
Wilson’s mother, Barbara Deer, and his father, Wilson Morales, both passed away before him. Wilson was an only child. On Sunday, June 11, 2023, a celebration of life will be held at the Zaback-Williams-Ducro Funeral Home, which is located at 500 W. Prospect Rd. in Ashtabula.
Friends and family will be received at the funeral home beginning at 10:00 AM and continuing until the time of the ceremony at 12:00 PM. Immediately after the conclusion of the service, there will be a period for meditation followed by a luncheon.
