Born and raised in Twillingate, Newfoundland, Wilson left ‘the Rock’ and moved to Cornwall at the age of 15.  He started his career in the newspaper business working at Moffitt Printing and the Prescott Journal.  At the age of 40 Wilson began a successful career working for Prudential as an insurance advisor and became one of the top sales agents in Canada. 


Wilson met his beloved Claudette in 1952 and they were married in Cornwall in 1955.  Visiting Twillingate, Newfoundland was among Hardy’s favourite memories along with sharing stories of his childhood years with his kids and grandchildren.  He loved music and loved playing both guitar and harmonica with his family.
