Wilbur was born on October 16, 1937 to Nellie Maye and Wilbur N. Killebrew, Sr. of Canadian. Wilbur grew up in Canadian and on the family ranch in Roberts County. He attended school and graduated from Canadian High School. After high school he enrolled at Texas Tech University, where he graduated with two degrees in Chemical Engineering. He met the first love of his life, Patricia Anne Rahm, whom he married in 1971. They shared many great years before she preceded him in death in 1994. He later found love again when he met Sarah Crim in 1999. In his spare time, he enjoyed travel and researching family history. However, what brought him the most pleasure was spending time at the family ranch where he grew up. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, brother, and friend.
