Jimmy and Waylon Wilsey

$5,375 of $75,000 goal

Created February 2, 2019
Loved by family, friends and fans, guitarist James Calvin Wilsey died on Christmas Eve, 2018 of a heart attack after years of fighting for his health and a stable home. We remember him as a brilliant musician; a smart, funny, and generous human being; and a loving father of his 15-year-old son, Waylon.

Waylon has lost so much and needs a permanent, secure and loving home. Our hopes are to build him a great future. Unfortunately a lot goes into handling affairs after someone passes without a will. Guardianship costs, memorial, medical for Waylon and a college fund. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please give what you can in memory of Jimmy and to make possible a bright future for Waylon.


Thank you

Thanks to all who have donated! Your generosity is so appreciated.

We've hit $3500+ and hope young Waylon's fund will keep growing. He's facing a hard road after losing so much. Please keep spreading the word and letting the world know about Jimmy's love for Waylon.

The Wilsey Fund will go directly to cover expenses in establishing guardianship for Waylon with Jimmy's niece (which was granted yesterday!!) and for his welfare and education. Thank you again and please share with your friends.

Here's an extensive article about Jimmy summing up much of his life.
