In Memoriam John Wilson, FAIA (1941-2019)


This news saddens me until I remember working with John, and sharing in some of his passions and endeavors. He was a big, kind, and insightful man and architect who will be remembered as such. I am happy for my memories of him.

I am saddened to hear of John’s passing – my thoughts and prayers to his family and the greater Payette family. While John had long retired by the time I arrived at Payette- his influence was still felt by those he had impacted and worked with! He visited a number of times and I was fortunate to meet him. Another partner who passed away four years ago, Sho-Ping Chin, – was greatly influenced by John…. she passed much of what he taught her on to others. To John!!!!

John was the most gifted, inventive architect I ever knew. I always marveled at his creative energy and the diversity of his works. no two projects were ever alike. Each was a new invention. John worked tirelessly hard at creating a more socially responsibility profession.John as brilliance and kindness, always a mentor to those around him. I was blessed to work with this gentle giant.
