My heart is sad but full of fond memories of Uncle Doc. I just watched the Land as Good as Gold documentary about Wildwood Preserve that explained how he was the driving force behind the parks establishment. I knew he was involved but I was ignorant to how much! He was humble that way. His sense of humor and passion for life, family, nature and music was a special gift to all of us lucky enough to know him. I am too far away to share in the memorial gathering but I send my caring thoughts to my dear family and will be there in spirit. Uncle Doc’s legacy will live on in many ways including what he has done for the community but most of all for how he touched our lives with humor and adoration.

I didn't know Dr Mewborn Jr. but my dog and i walk the Boardwalk at Wildwood that is named after him everyday. what a beautiful and lasting legacy he leaves behind. The Boardwalk is a special part of Wildwood and has many spots to relax and enjoy nature. His dad delivered me when i was born and my mom worked as his nurse. my thoughts and prayers are with you.

We knew Dr. Bill Mewborn from our S.T.O.P. animal group (Stop Toledo's Overpopulation of Pets) in the 1990's. He was so generous to invite and host the meetings at his beautiful home which was on the border of Wildwood Metro Park. He had lights in his backyard and large picture windows where we were all delighted to see the wild deer and other creatures taking turns grazing after dark. He was such a kind and gentle person with a heart of pure gold! He truly loved all animals and was a wise steward of wildlife and nature. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Stacey Grasso and Shelley Luettke

I was a member of MSUMC and knew the Mewborns. I was a RN at Toledo Hospital and worked with Dr. Mewborn, Sr. and of course heard many stories about young "doc". When I started getting pets of my own, I naturally took them to young "doc" for Vet. care and was so glad I did. He was super kind to each of my dogs and cats and also to me. I trusted Bill because of his knowledge and his compassion. What a blessing he was. Thank you, Bill. R I P.
