Marine industry veteran W. Frederic Wilson, 66, of Stonington, Conn., died June 30. He was 66.

Wilson owned and operated Dockside Electronics for the last 39 years. He was a familiar sight at every boatyard in the area, according to his obituary.

“He never went anywhere without his toolbox. Friends and family could always rely on him to fix anything that needed it and he wore that reputation as a badge of honor,” the article reads.

Wilson also was a member of the Groton Sportsmen’s Club, an Eagle Scout and a Navy veteran.

In addition to his wife, Sonya, he leaves two children and a sister.

A memorial service celebrating his life will be held Wednesday at the Grace Fellowship Evangelical Free Church in North Stonington, Conn.
