|The words spoken about Uncle Wilbur at his homecoming service really hit home for a lot of us, especially the words from one of his nephews, Kevin Greene. Kevin said that growing up without a father in the home, uncle Wilbur and all of his uncles were father's to him, and I concur. When my father passed (Jay), uncle Wilbur, uncle Mose, and the rest of my uncles picked up the ball and kept us all in line.
We all know that Uncle Wilbur certainly had a gift of gab, but many may not know that he was also an excellent listener. Not only did he hear the sounds coming from one's mouth, his comprehension of those sounds was at the highest level. Truly an ICON in the Bay Shore community, Uncle Wilbur will always be with us all.
