Chance Larry Wilson, 29, of Watford City, N.D., passed away on Monday, Dec. 19, 2016, in Williston.
Chance Larry Wilson was born on February 23, 1987 to Tammy (Neether) Wilson and Larry Wilson of Watford City, N.D. He joined his sister, Chassie who remained his close, dear friend his entire life. They lived on a ranch at Tobacco Gardens.
Chance enjoyed riding his pony “Smoky,” spending time with his pets, Jacob his dog, bunnies, and cats. He liked it when he started Kindergarten since that meant he could go with Chassie and his Grandma Lettie drove the bus. On his first day of school, an older boy was picking on his sister so he went and punched him and told him to leave his sister alone. He loved his sister.
Chance was active in basketball, football, FFA and 4-H. He loved motorcycles and cars. When he got older and got his driver’s license, he earned enough money to buy his first car a 1969 Mustang. He restored it and continued purchasing more cars, a CRX, RX8, VW, etc.
Chance went to BSC but decided he wanted to go to a warmer climate. He moved to Phoenix, Ariz., and enrolled at Devri University. Chance built his first video game there. He loved the heat, activities and going to concerts and meeting the band members. He made friends with Jonny Craig and Dance Gavin Dance.
He started his Pin Ups Tattoo shop in Phoenix. He loved this since he loved people and could meet new people every day. He later moved back to North Dakota. He worked as a Computer Tech for his mom’s business and also Panther Pressure Testers. He was very smart with computers.
Chance will be so missed. He loved his family and friends very much. He’d meet new people and treated them like he had known them all of his life. Big grin, open arms and a reassuring hug. He offered friendship without hesitation. He was such a warm hearted, caring, kind giving person. He was an angel on earth and he has left us to be with his Father above. This is truly a difficult sad time, but it is also a happy time. Chance is now surrounded by peace, love and is happier than we could imagine.
God Bless and we love you Chance.
