In addition to his wife and parents, Mr. Wilkerson was preceded in death by a daughter, Cheryl Sealy Phillips; a brother, Carlisle Wilkerson; and three sisters, Beppy Landreth, Eleanor Ashe, and Nan Buckner.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at 4:00 pm at First Baptist Church of Blacksburg with Rev. Don Boshell officiating. The interment will be private. Honorary pallbearers will be the present and past members of the Blacksburg Volunteer Fire Department.
