His final days were spent surrounded by his family members, who were in one way or another touched by this strong, joyous, and loving man.
Wisley lived a long and happy life, and though a victim of dementia, that never stopped him from fighting till the end. He was known for his radiant smile and a laugh so contagious that no matter what mood you were in, you would find yourself smiling and laughing with him. Wisley was a hardworking man, dedicated to taking care of his wife and children. He was a master cabinet maker who had started his craft at the tender age of 14. Wisley was at certain times a man of few words, however his actions spoke loud and his presence even louder.

He shared his gifts with anyone and everyone that he had crossed paths with.
