BARTLESVILLE, Oklahoma -

Coworkers are remembering an EMT in Bartlesville who died from COVID-19 complications.

Stan Wilson had been serving the community for 21 years. 

Bartlesville Ambulance Administrator Dan Dalton said Wilson was a leader at Bartlesville Ambulance Services and it's hard to put into words how much he will be missed.

"He's probably one of the nicest and most compassionate medics we've ever had, he's a joy to be around, everybody likes Stan," Dalton said. 

Dalton said Wilson was a hardworking EMT who was dedicated to what he did. He said Wilson was always working overtime and being a mentor to other medics. 

"He didn't complain about anything, most of my employees complain a lot, but he didn't complain about anything," he said. 

Wilson got sick with COVID-19 in early September and was in the hospital a few weeks before he died. 

Dalton said this has been a hard time for all his coworkers. 

"Everybody is already under stress with all the COVID calls that we are getting, and this just adds a special burden to everybody," Dalton said. 

Dalton said people from across the state are calling them and letting them know the impact Wilson had on their lives. 

He said he knows Wilson will be with them on every call they go to. 

"They loved to work with him, everybody loved to work with Stan, I'm sure that's going to go with them for a long time," he said. 

Funeral services will be held Thursday at 11 a.m. at Spirit Church in Bartlesville.
