Ted J. Wilson

September 16, 1940 — May 11, 2024

North Logan, Utah

Ted J. Wilson of Logan, Utah passed peacefully on Saturday, May 11 from complications due to age. Ted was born in Logan, Utah on September 16, 1940 to proud parents Donald J Wilson and Patricia Anne Givens Wilson. Don J and Patty lost Ted’s only sister, Anne, when she was a toddler, so Ted and his parents kept a close relationship until they died. 

Ted grew up in River Heights and graduated from South Cache High School. He called himself a “greaser" from that time because he liked to work on cars. While in high school, Ted joined the National Guard and served for about 6 years. He met his wife Dixie Grover while attending Utah State University. He pursued her until they were married in Boulder City, Nevada in 1961. While at USU, Ted and Dixie formed lifelong friendships in a “fratority” they named Sigma Zonk. 

Ted and Dixie spent their nearly 63 years of married life split between Logan (River Heights) and Garden City. They raised three children along the same street in River Heights that Ted’s parents raised him on, spending summers at the lake. 

At the beginning of his career, Ted owned and operated State Finance and Thrift in Logan. For his second act, Ted purchased property at Bear Lake, where he developed Bridgerland Village, Bridgerland Water, and worked in real estate. He always kept busy with different investments and projects, even running a gravel pit in Randolph, Utah. 

Ted was a hunting and fishing enthusiast. He loved duck hunting, deer and elk hunting and all that that entailed. He was a decorated Trap shooter. He was an avid gun collector and enjoyed loading his own shells and pouring his own bullets. Ted loved fishing, whether on the river, lake or ocean. 

Ted spent countless hours with his dad or kids at “The Shop” working on anything with a motor, or just starting a fire and hanging out. 

His other great hobby was morning coffee at Angie’s in Logan or Pulley’s in Garden City. He claimed that is where all the big business deals are made. Later in life, he enjoyed seeing the country while riding Hogs with his friends. 

Ted said his greatest accomplishment was the lifelong partnership he shared with Dixie. His fondest memories were always woven with the threads of family gatherings at Bear Lake, where love and laughter echoed against the backdrop of serene water and majestic mountains. 

Ted leaves behind his wife, Dixie, his children, Rob J Wilson (Stephanie), Tana Jo Heninger (Brett), Mike G. Wilson (Melisa), 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Grandpa Ted will be greatly missed. 

A viewing in his honor will be held on Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Allen-Hall Mortuary, 34 E Center St, Logan. A graveside service will be held at the Garden City Cemetery at 1 p.m. that same day. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to the LDS Missionary Fund, Humanitarian Fund or a favorite charity.
