Lumel Wilson, also known affectionately as Peter Rabbit, has sadly passed away at the age of 72. He was born on July 24, 1951, in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, and he peacefully departed from this world on September 29, 2023, at his home.

Throughout his life, Lumel made a significant impact on those around him. He had a diverse career that spanned from trucking to working in Copiah County public works. Lumel dedicated himself to his profession and retired with honor.

Education played an essential role in Lumel's life, and he received his education from Crystal Springs Public Schools. A thirst for knowledge accompanied him throughout his journey.

Lumel possessed a deep love for nature and relished spending time outdoors. His hobbies and interests reflected this passion. Whether it was exploring the beauty of the natural world or simply appreciating its wonders, Lumel found solace and joy in the great outdoors.

A man greatly adored by his family and friends, Lumel created cherished memories with those closest to him. He was preceded in death by his father, Murphy Wilson; mother, Ida Robinson-Wilson; brothers Cephus and Murphy; sister Carolyn; and son Sherman Wilson. Although they mourn his loss deeply, they find comfort in the immense love they shared with Lumel.
