He is preceded in death by his parents: Harlan and Earline Wright, and brother: Stephen Wright. 

Mr. Wright was a kind man who loved his family and friends fiercely. He was loyal, hardworking, extremely thoughtful, and selfless- often sacrificing time for himself in order to do things for his loved ones. He was brilliant and was a jack of all trades as well as  funny – he had a wonderful sense of humor and laughed often while also making others laugh. He was a great husband, daddy, grandfather “Pop”, brother, uncle, and friend. He found pure joy in celebrating the accomplishments, success, and general happiness of those he loved.
