I wish I could label my relationship to Mr. Wilson as "fan", as I never met him. I recently saw Mr. Wilson in the Brian DePalma film "Sisters" with Margot Kidder and Jennifer Salt. The film is shown every once in a while on Turner Classic Movies. He truck me instantly from the first scene he was in. What an amazing performance he gave in the film, and I can only imagine that he remained a true professional the remainder

we had a special bond and I miss you a lot. I remember hating to go to school Saturdays but would end up staying for hours afterwards just talking to you. I will always cherish that DVD you made for me. I wish your family the best and may you rest in peace.

I was deeply saddened when I heard that my teacher from AADA Had passed away! I thought he was a very personable man and so talented!

I did not know Mr. Wilson, but "That's My Mama" is one of my all-time favorite shows. He was so funny. I hope he is resting in peace.

Lisle was a great man among men. A man who was there to help others on a 24/7 basis. I taught vocal coaching with Lisle at the Academy of Radio and TV Broadcasting. He was a gentleman, a scholar, a colleague and a friend. He will be missed by so many. His students have much to be proud of to be taught by such an accomplished individual. As for me...I am grateful to have had the honor to work with him.

Messsage to the Wilson family: I have such fond memories of my cousin Lisle. First, I never heard Lisle say a harsh word against anyone. Lisle was so very easy going. As we all know, Lisle had a passion for the art of Film making. When we were teenagers Lisle and my older brother Carl (now deceased) enticed me and we decided to make a movie. It was shot in 8mm. Carl was the Director and it stared Lisle Wilson

I've known about Lisle's death for several months now but still have not been able to wrap my mind around the reality that he is gone. I can picture his face so clearly, hear his voice, see his wonderful smile - A man with so much life and love in him can't be gone. Lisle was first my director at AADA/West. After graduation, he became my acting teacher but most of all, Lisle was my dear friend. Lisle always conducted
