In 1976 Ronald Wilson left a 15 year career with the Cornwall Police Department behind to pursue his vision within funeral service. Having worked in this field since the 1950's he knew there was something lacking in the manner services were being provided in Cornwall; it was time the funeral purchasing public was given control over funeral service pricing. Ron and a handful of funeral professionals in Ontario developed and pioneered a way of service delivery that by today's standards would be considered revolutionary. The Province of Ontario was watchful and agreed with their methods. Nearly 14 years later it was proclaimed in the legislature that all of funeral service in Ontario would operate in the way Ron saw it.
Today, Wilson Funeral Home continues to provide the widest variety of services and merchandise available in the area and is regarded by consumers as the "Best Value" for traditional, contemporary, memorial, alternative, and cremation services.
