I knew Coy before coming to WUHS from Aptos Elementary School as his granmother's house was next door to our home. I can only remember a nice person who always was in a great mood. I never had classes with him in high school but we did see each out side of school and he was always nice to be around.
This comment was prompted after reading Greg Pullen's comment about some of our classmates where he noted no comments had been made. Very astute observation and I thank Greg for that input.
I last saw Coy at the twenty year reunion and all seemed well. I understand he was afflicted by a terrible and non curable disease and left us all too soon. It's sad when I see his name in the In Memory section of our class web page.

I remember Coy Wilson from Aptos grammar school also. He was the "freckled face" kid. We played dodge ball and had other good times at recess. I left AGS after the 5th grade and lost contact, but it is good to remember a good soul who had a good smile.

I was very sad to hear of Coy's passing. He was a very quiet guy with a sweet personality. He was alway upbeat, never in a down mood. I enjoyed talking to him in high school and he always offered to give me rides to Cabrillo College just to have a chance to chat with a friend. We happened to have a few classes together so that is the way I got to know him. He was the nicest person. I lost track of him after Cabrillo but always remembered him fondly.

As most of you will remember we started every day in high school in our home-room. With my last name being Wright and Coy’s being Wilson we always sat near to each other. This was the start of every day through our entire 4 years of high school. Coy became a person that I was always comfortable with and look forward to seeing daily. He had a wonderful sense of humor and would make me laugh every morning. Coy was one of those people I always felt at ease around, which is not easy to say in high school as we all feeling so vulnerable during those years. I was so very sorry to see his name listed under the memorials as I have many fond memories of him. Coy you will be missed!
