John Thomas “Jocky” Wilson (22 March 1950 – 24 March 2012) was a Scottish professional darts player from Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland.

John Thomas “Jocky” Wilson (22 March 1950 – 24 March 2012) was a Scottish professional darts player from Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland.   After turning pro in 1979, he quickly rose to the top of the game, winning the World Professional Darts Championship in 1982, then again in 1989. Wilson competed in all major darts tournaments of the era and won the British Professional Championship a record four times between 1981 and 1988.

Wilson served in the British Army from 1966 to 1968. He also worked as a coal delivery man, fish processor, and also a miner at Kirkcaldy’s Seafield Colliery. However, it was a spell of unemployment which was to prove the catalyst to Wilson achieving darting greatness. In 1979 during this period of unemployment, he entered a darts competition at Butlins, Ayrshire, which he went on to win, claiming the top prize of £500. His success in this tournament convinced him that he should turn professional.

A heavy smoker for forty years, in November 2009 it was announced that Wilson had been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Reports stated that he had smoked up to 50 cigarettes a day for most of his life. He died just after 9 p.m. on 24 March 2012 at his home in Kirkcaldy, at the age of 62
